It’s amazing how cars seats have come a long, long, long way since I was a child, especially in terms of style, comfort, and safety. Amazingly, they’ve greatly evolved since my almost 10-year-old son was born. This is a good thing since I can not so fondly remember that when I was a toddler that I always somehow managed to escape my car seat! I didn’t like the sense of confinement that the car seat gave me. I wanted my freedom!
I guess my 4-year-old is like me in that regard because she doesn’t like being confined at all. She adopted this attitude early on since she’d refuse to even be in a playpen or high chair when she was younger. I’m thankful that car seats are not like they used to be since my daughter would have found to way to escape a long time ago!
There is no denying that the diono radian rXT Convertible+Booster ($251.99) is everything that I look for in a car seat. In fact, it goes above and beyond to leave quite an impression. Easy to install – ☑. Comfortable – ☑. Super safety features – ☑. Stylish ☑.
A few years back, it was a few days shortly after my daughter was born that a CPS technician was helping me install my daughter’s car seat before we left the hospital. I had to get another CPS technician to help since the other one couldn’t help but shake her head in confusion. This indicates how complicated it is to install some car seats even when a CPS technician is confused. Installing a car seat shouldn’t have to overexert brain power! This is why I was pleasantly surprised how effortlessly easy it was to install the diono radian rXT Convertible+Booster.
My daughter is normally not a fan of car rides like most toddlers, yet I was pleasantly surprised how content and comfortable she was on a recent road trip. One notable feature that I love about this car seat are the reinforced extra deep side walls that provide enhanced side impact protection, ensuring the utmost safety for little travelers. I also love the built-in cup holder, making my daughter’s drink even more accessible. That’s not all! It can be worn as a backpack with diono’s Carry Straps (sold separately) for hands-free transport. The backpack is designed with a full steel frame for unmatched safety and folds flat perfectly for travel. No wonder why the diono radian rXT Convertible+Booster is the #1 choice for parents on the go!
Since messes from baby and toddlers are inevitable, I marvel at the fact that pad can easily come out to throw in the washing machine since it is machine washable.
