That’s right folks, with all of the family obligations we have scattered about the state, we’re taking flights, road trips, and more! Safety is of utmost concern, so I want to make sure to keep up with the top products for my family. I got a chance to review the Diono RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat, oh how do I love thee! How about an infant seat, toddler seat, and booster all in one? Yup, no need to purchase a new seat at every growth spurt. Those of you seasoned mothers know what i’m getting at. The Diono RadianRXT was designed to fit children through the years. As they grow, this seat is able to adjust beautifully and grow with them! This super versatile car seat spans from 5 to 45 pounds rear-facing, 20 to 80 pounds forward facing, and up to 120 pounds in booster mode.
Opening the box was probably the hardest part of this whole thing, it was nice and sealed. The contents include RadianRXT Convertible Car Seat, one cup holder, rear-facing base, infant support cushions, SafeStop harness, rear-facing tether connector strap, and instruction manual. I love that I didn’t really have to put anything together, it’s pretty much ready to go. Pictured is the Diono RadianRXT Convertible Booster Car Seat in storm. They also come in blue, red, purple, spring floral print and beige.
Sit rear facing up to 45 pounds – This is a big deal for us. We just decided to switch Girly Girl to a forward facing seat, but we had her rear facing for quite some time. Many car seats do not provide extended rear facing options, the Diono RadianRXT does all the way up to 45 lbs! Peace of mind for any parent, really, since car seats that are rear facing are found to be safer for the child.
Safety Concerns – In addition to the superior restraint system mentioned above, this seat has been crash tested at it’s highest weight capacities and meets all federal standards. The special SafeStop energy absorbing harness provides bungee-like absorption which reduces impact on the child in the case of an accident. It is rated for 10 years of life, so hand me downs are definitely ok!
The life of this seat could last for quite a while! When Girly Girl grows out of her toddler seat days, she’ll be able to use it as a booster. No need to buy another seat. Another cool thing: if you have a large family or multiples, three of these seats can fit comfortably in most back seats.
