We’ve recently changed baby Addy to a convertible car seat and finding one we trust that will also keep her as safe as possible was a stressful job. As parents we want to make the best decisions and we don’t want to think of what can happen in an accident but it’s something we have to do. Thinking ahead of time and preparing the best you can will be one of the best decisions you can make. We were given the opportunity to try the Safety 1st Complete Air 65 Convertible Car Seat recently and I want to tell you all about it!
Safety 1st has a wide range of baby products! They carry baby gear such as high chairs, walkers, travel systems, bassinets, play yards, car seats and more! They also carry a full line of child care and home safety products! Safety 1st can fill your nursery with almost all of your needs!
The Safety 1st Complete Air 65 Convertible Car Seat is designed to be rear facing for babies/toddlers between 5 and 40 pounds and 19-40 inches. Forward facing, it accommodates weights between 22-65 pounds and 34-52 inches. The seat is designed with Air Protect™ technology, which is a breakthrough system that helps save lives by shielding baby’s head and immediately reduces side impact forces through the precise release of air. It really is a seat you can use from birth all the way through the car seat years!
I love that the headrest is adjustable to five different positions so it can “grow” with your child, always protecting his/her head. It can be adjusted to fit next to my 8 month old baby girl’s head as well as my 2 year old son’s head! The Complete Air 65 also has a QuickFit Harness System that adjusts harness height from the front in one easy step without uninstalling from the car. You can see in the above right photo that the harness above the shoulder is attached to the part that moves up and down so there will be no more uninstalling and re-installing to adjust the safety belt height. I love that feature!!
The harness accommodates children up to 65 pounds and can be adjusted from just a small “button” on the front. It’s very easy to use and has two clicks on the bottom and one snap-together towards the top. Another safety feature is that the seat is LATCH equipped. The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system was developed to make it easier to correctly install child safety seats without using seat belts. It is just that, easy! I am able to install the car seat without any help from my husband other than having him check to make sure the belts are as tight as they can get.
A few other great features to have are the removable cup holder and the washable seat pad. The cup holder simply attaches to the left side of the seat under the padding. You don’t have to un-install the seat or anything, it’s a part of the material that just tucks under so it’s easy to lift and add or remove the cup holder. I am thankful the cup holder is removable because at this stage we do not need it for our 8 month old, but as she grows and starts using sippy cups regularly we’ll want to attach the cup holder for her to use. The washable seat pad is genius because every baby or toddler will get sick, spill something or put their dirty shoes on the seat!
Safety 1st is known for creating reliable baby products and this seat is no exception. It is a great seat to grow with baby and it has some amazing safety features as well as some added bonuses! Go to a local retailer today and check it out! You won’t be disappointed!
