When you think about installing a child seat, most of us automatically look at our significant others. We expect them to come up with the best option at Babies R Us, then we carry it to the car and install once we get home. The point of this story is for you to get more involved. Don't just pass the buck on this job, you wouldn't do that with an exhaust system would you?
My daughter is ready to upgrade. Her infant seat is reaching the limits for her size, so the next step is the bigger version that allows her to sit more upright and also removes the carrier from the equation. I went with Diono, mainly because of this laundry list right here:
- Holds Lilly rear facing up to 50lbs
- Aluminum reinforced surround and full steel frame
- FAA certified
- Folds for easy carrying & storage
- Works up to 120lbs as a booster
- 12 year shelf life
That right there, should help you with your decision making. Diono is an industry leader in child safety systems and the Rainier model we picked up for this story is one of their best. Our model is the Graphite color, which looks good with any kid and in any car. Follow along as I show you unboxing and also how to install this setup. I really love this thing and the best part is, I handled it all. While my wife watched Lilly, played and fed her lunch, I was able to handle all of this from start to finish. It gave me some pride knowing I'm involved and also knowing that I chose a safe and easy to use system for my daughter.
