Car Seat For Babies
Britax One4Life ClickTight All-in-One Car Seat – 10 Years of Use – Infant, Convertible, Booster – 5 to 120 Pounds - SafeWash Fabric, Drift
This car seat is everything I have been looking for and it came out just in time!
I wanted an extended rear-facing car seat up to 50 pounds, as I’ve read that rear-facing as long as possible is best for little ones’ spines (in Sweden I think their kids rear face until 4!).
I also wanted the seat to be convertible to a front-facing and booster seat as well so I wouldn’t have to create lots of waste with multiple car seats over the years.
And of course, I wanted it to be safe.
I did tons of research on the web and consumer reports and narrowed it down to the Chicco nextfit max (though this doesn’t have the booster option), this car seat, and the grace extend2fit.
The Graco extend2fit would have been my choice if this car seat had not come out. But this car seat wins for several reasons over the Graco.
The ease of install is incredible. I don’t have to worry about messing with the latch, and I only have to close the click tight panel under the seat once I put the seatbelt across.
This is also so padded and comfortable, my mom sat in it and was impressed by how nice it was!
The final factor was how well it fits in my 2013 Prius C. I was worried when researching that I’d have a hard time finding a seat that fits, especially an extended rear-facing seat. This fits the bill perfectly as there is still room in the front seat for a passenger (though not a particularly long-legged one, but still, I was expecting not to have room for a front seat passenger!).
TL;DR stop searching and get this car seat today if it is in your budget!!! Although this is on the pricier side, the safety of my child is totally worth it to me. When I consider that the seat will last 10 years and that I spend more on eating out some months than I did on this car seat, it puts things in perspective and is well worth the investment.Promised Review By Chelsea Torres
