I received this car seat c/o Diono but all opinions expressed are 100% my own.
I often get asked about the baby gear I have purchased for my babies. I have lists on lists on lists of things because let's be honest, babies need ALL THE THINGS. But one of the MOST IMPORTANT items you can purchase for your babe, is the carseat! In my city, they won't let you leave the hospital without one!
We used a bucket seat for the first 6 months. I love starting out with the bucket seat because you can take your sleeping baby everywhere but after about 6 months, it starts getting HEAVY and by 6 months, both of our kiddos hated the bucket seat. For Luca, we toughed it out until he was almost a year but for London, I knew I didn't want to suffer through those carseat meltdowns so at 6 months we graduated her to the Diono Radian RXT.
And we've been absolutely loving it!
Here are five reasons why we love our Diono Radian RXT carseat:
A child can be rear facing in the seat from 5lbs to 45lbs, forward facing in the five point harness up to 65lbs and then it converts to a booster and can be used from 50lbs to 120lbs! The carseat is also good for TEN years so chances are you can use it on your next babe!
When we took the carseat out of the box, both James and I commented on how strong it felt! The frame is made of steel and the sidewalls are reinforced with aluminum. It is one STRONG carseat.
We went with the Midnight (all black) seat and it looks great in our SUV. It's so sleek as well! But that sleekness isn't just for good looks, it's sleek enough to fit THREE carseats across a single row...(can someone please tell my hubby if we have another baby we won't need to buy a minivan, ha!)
It's such a comfortable seat! London just loves it and actually fell asleep in it the other day!! (She stopped falling asleep in her bucket seat at 3 months old!!)
5. EASE OF USE
One of my favourite features of the Diono Radian RXT carseat is it folds flat and can be worn as a backpack. That my friends, will make air travel a BREEZE! It also is super easy to install and the whole cover is machine washable...I unfortunately had to find that out after London got sick all over it :( Thank goodness it all went in the wash and I was able to easily attach the fabric back to the seat.
