We are a little bit fanatical with our car seats. When Lily was ready to make the jump from her Graco Snugride to a convertible car seat I researched it forever. And came home with a Britax which I loved and it served me well for 6 years.
*moment of silence for the fact that by first baby is a few weeks away from being a third grader*
But hopefully you remember that car seats expire. So we needed a new car seat. And car seats have really evolved since I started this parenting gig. Even more so since the dark ages when our parents just let us sleep in the back window on long trips to Colorado.
I am in love with our new car seat for Silas. The RECARO ProSERIES is designed to be the ultimate in safety but still be incredibly comfortable. I frankly want to sit in it. There is side impact protection. Which also comes in handy when your kid falls asleep in the car so their head doesn’t flop around. It has a 5-point harness and can attach to your car’s LATCH system. It has also met a ton of safety standards in the US and Europe.
But outside of safety one of the most important things to me is how easy it is to install and use. Cause if I need an engineering degree to work it I don’t want anything to do with it. And I have dealt with a lot of car seats from the year that are just impossible to use. The installation was a breeze. Or so says my husband who is in charge of all installation-esque things. Getting Silas in and out of the seat and adjusting the straps could not be easier. There is no twisting or sticking of the straps.

I received a carseat to facilitate my review. As always all opinions are my own.
