Who Doesn’t Want the First Look?


Hello Mamas influencer, Taylor, from @_Picklesandicecream 

Mamas, how hard it to navigate the “wonderful” world of baby products!? Want a stroller? Here are 150 options to choose from… good luck. Traveling soon and looking for a pack n’ play? Here are 22 options in 56 designs. Awesome. And let’s not forget you have to find the perfect thermometer for when your little one gets sick… or else. I mean, talk about overwhelming!

Apparently we are not alone in this. And that’s why my friends at Hello Mamas partnered with Safety 1st to create the Hello Mamas First look program in partnership with some incredible brands. They feature amazing products from companies like Safety 1st, Maxi Cosi, Tiny Love, Cosco Kids and more! This program gives moms a stronger voice in the world of baby products. It’s a win-win. Select mamas get to test out and review products based on their parenting stage, which in turn gives Safety 1st (and their sister brands) the feedback they need to ensure they are doing everything they can to make each and every product the best it can be.

I was fortunate enough to be asked by Hello Mamas to review a few items (see below) via the program and extend an exclusive invite for my friends to join the First Look Program!

First, here’s how the Hello Mamas First Look program works…

1. Sign up to join the program (SUPER simple sign up)

2. If you’re selected, Safety 1st will email when a product that fits your needs has been shipped, complete with links to leave the reviews

3. You leave a review for the product on Safety1st.com (also SUPER simple) and get to keep the product…for free!

Now, onto the products I reviewed as part of the First Look review program!

First Up: The Safety 1st UltraMax 360 4-in-1 convertible car seat!

We transitioned Amelia from her Britax B Safe 35 Infant Seat to the Safety 1st UltraMax 360 4 in 1 convertible seat and OH MAN, does she love it! I honestly have nothing but good things to say about this convertible car seat. It’s amazing! I absolutely love that this product can follow her as she grows, which saves us so much money…babies are expensive, yall! 😉 This Safety 1st convertible seat has completely exceeded safety standards, and knowing this makes my mama heart feel at ease while toting her around town.

Amelia seems to ride so comfortably and the reclining feature is wonderful when it comes to those “on the go” naps #momwin Moving on to the double cup holders, yes I said DOUBLE! This is the perfect storage space for sippy cups, snack containers, bottles, whatever your heart desires…AND they are completely washable! We have the “Raven” color seat and I’m so obsessed with how well it goes with the interior of my car, I know, I’m OCD…but it gets better guys, the seat cover is totally machine washable!
Next up on my list is the Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System.

This stroller is a breeze to assemble. I have a Honda Odyssey and it fits right in, leaving tons of space for groceries or unnecessary Target items 😉 The infant car seat snaps right on to the stroller and it’s pretty simple to maneuver while out and about!

When the stroller is without the car seat, I still find that it’s sturdy enough to stroll around with. I have the Moss green color and I cannot even tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on it! It’s totally gender neutral– you just can’t go wrong! I’ve used this travel system a handful of times and I really can’t express enough how impressed I am by it, especially for the price, that’s a total win!

I was so honored to be asked to review both of these products via the First Look Program! And I can’t wait to see what’s coming next!
