“I ride in
Daddy’s car in purple car seat.” That’s the phrase I’ve been hearing every day since my husband Jeff installed our new Black Plum Diono Radian rXT in the back of his BMW. I tease him that installing a car seat in the back of his slick ride might cramp his style but he just laughs. Quite frankly, if he’s going to have a car seat in his cool car this is the one. This Diono car seat is slick.
The need never arose to purchase a second car seat until now but since that I’m back at work full-time as a flight attendant instructor there’s no way around it. When I was offered a Diono Radian rXT for review purposes, how could I resist? And now that we have this all-in-one car seat I’m kicking myself for not getting one sooner.
Why would I recommend the Radian rXT car seat over others?
Safety. Most importantly from a safety standpoint it has a steel alloy frame (that’s right – a steel car seat!), aluminum reinforced side walls, energy absorbing EPS foam. My husband raves about this car seat. He says its the sturdiest, most resilient car seat he has ever had the pleasure of installing and using on a daily basis. This is coming from a dad of five kids who researches anything and everything under the sun and delves even deeper if the item is safety related and for his children.
Support. For the littlest passengers there is reinforced adjustable head support. She comfortably falls asleep in this car seat. A couple of weeks ago she slept for three hours in it and woke refreshed.
Outstanding reviews. Browsing customers reviews is imperative when researching baby products. The overall consensus is outstanding. The biggest complaint that I read was regarding the material and considering that it’s not a safety feature I think such a negative is forgivable.
