September means pumpkin spice lattes, football, cooler nights, earlier bedtimes, back to routines, pumpkin spice lattes. Oh wait, I already mentioned that. (I was the first customer to purchase one at my local Starbucks on September 1st. I’m probably wayy too proud of myself for that accomplishment.) Did you also know September is Baby Safety Awareness Month? It’s meant to increase consumer awareness of safety issues while promoting the safe selection and use of baby products. I think one of if not the most important safety products you can by for your baby is a carseat. People are always asking me, what is the safest car seat? I’ve been to car seat factories in China. I know that they all need to test for the same level of safety. If you are buying a carseat in America, your putting your baby in something that is safe. I’ve sat in meetings for hours with Quality Assurance discussing fabric tests like resistance to wear and load, pilling issues, tenacity-elongation, resistance to aging, temperature resistance, humidity absorption, and static charge. And that is JUST the seat fabric, people. I’ve witnessed 30mph sled tests, side impact tests, and read more chemical compliance reports than I care to remember. But there are some companies that take extra steps to go above and behind. And Safety 1st has done just that with it’s brand new UltraMax Air 360 4-1. This baby has been crash tested from every angle – front, rear, side, and rollover – to protect your baby from every angle. They also included 6 levels of added protection like:
- Air Protect (R) for superior side impact protection
- A steel reinforced frame to add stability
- A motion control headrest to contain movement
- Soft foam added to the seat for maximum comfort at first contact
- A GCell (TM) HX patented race car foam added to the structure
- A deeper seat construction to shield your baby
It’s truly 4 seats in one: Baby can sit rear-facing from 4-22lbs and extended rear-racing 15-50lbs. Forward-facing will go from 22-65lbs. There’s even a belt positioning booster that will go from 40-120lbs. My Mother in Law could fit in this seat, you guys.
