A Car Seat Built To Last (Feat. Safety 1st) & a 10 Car Seat Giveaway!!!

posted in: car seats, Choices, Gear, Reviews, Safety | 25


Have you ever had a moment of pure jealousy over an item your child got to use, but you couldn’t? Well I recently had this happen when our Safety 1st UltraMax Air 360 4-in-1 convertible Car Seat  arrived on our doorstep. I was asked by Safety 1st and the gals at Hello Mamas to give an honest review in exchange for this amazing car seat so let’s not delay shall we. (A little tip, there is a MASSIVE Giveaway at the end, for 10 LUCKY READERS!)

The very first thing I noticed when I took the car seat out of the box was how durable it was. Made with a steel reinforced frame, this bad boy is built to withstand a hit. The Air Protect cushioning is EVERYWHERE. I realized immediately that no matter what, if we got in an accident my child would be protected from every angle. The deep seat of the frame allows your child to sit snug and comfortably while driving.













I put my son in the car seat for the first time and just waited for him to fall asleep because it was so soft and comfy. I’m sure Safety 1st would rather not have me use words like “soft and comfy” but hey, that’s a great thing. As a mother (or parent for that matter) we want to know that while we are driving, we don’t have to stress the safety or comfort of our little ones. Safety 1st has allowed me that peace of mind.

This car seat fits EVERY stage of growth so you don’t have to continue to buy a new seat each time your baby outgrows one. The UltraMax Air 360 fits babies rear facing from 4 pounds to 50 pounds and then forward facing up to 65 pounds. Once your child is ready for a booster, it converts to a belt positioning booster for up to 120 pounds. The easy removal of the inserts allows the seat to gradually grow with your child.

Due to the steel inner frame, this car seat is heavy and therefore not intended to be taken in and out (which might not work for you if you prefer the snap-and-go style with newborns). If you are looking for an infant travel system, they have other great options as well, which you can find here. This one, however, is intended to grow with the baby from birth on. This means it’s heavy duty and, in my opinion, prime for older babes and toddlers.

Safety 1st has been our go to car seat for our little ones (my daughter’s seat is also Safety 1st)  because they take pride in truly making traveling safe for families. I believe that if you want a car seat that will be a staple piece in your family, a car seat that will allow you to travel in peace and a car seat that you know your child is comfortable in, then investing in the Safety 1st Ultra Max Air 360 Convertible 4-in-1 Car Seat is well worth it.

I have a tendency to refer to myself as a mother first, however I am learning to say, “I am a woman who raises A LOT of kids!” My life is full of chaos, laundry, homework and kids sports. I am fueled by coffee and home cooked meals. Family is the most important thing in my life. You could definitely say my personality is sarcastic, witty and full of head strong opinions. Nothing fuels my soul quite like writing about Motherhood, Marriage and Life as it happens to Me. Lastly, my name is Christina and I enjoy meeting other moms who don’t take themselves too seriously.

    I really love this: 4-in-1 car seat: Rear-facing for small babies 4-22 pounds, extended rear-facing for toddlers 15-50 pounds, forward-facing 22-65 pounds, and belt-positioning booster 40-120 pounds and 57″ tall.

    I also love this feature: QuickFit™ system for easy 10 position adjustment of both harness and headrest with one hand in one step.

    This car seat looks great too! Thanks for the chance to win one! xx
