Tips for Buying a Carseat

By  | Last Updated:  

My boys are my precious cargo. Whether we’re on a road trip, driving to the grocery store or heading to library story time, my priority is knowing that they are safe. After 11 years of parenting and several models of car seats, I have become very picky over the years about what I’ll put my boys in.

As soon as we opened our Evenflo Platinum Evolve 3-in-1 Combination Seat, I was impressed by how sturdy it appeared. {This coming from a woman who once returned a car seat because it didn’t seem strong enough — I’m really picky!} There is definitely something comforting about seeing a well-made, solid piece of equipment. From safety features to comfort features, this car seat has everything and then some. My two youngest actually argued over who the lucky fella would be that got the seat.

Things I Love…

1. This seat transitions with your child from 22 pounds to 110 pounds. I love the flexibility that offers. Not having to worry about buying a new seat with each size change is a huge bonus for me.

2. The Evenflo Platinum Evolve 3-in-1 Combination Seat has ComfortTech which is three unique, separate comfort layers that adapt to your child as they grow while preventing pressure point buildup. Zane declared the seat immensely comfortable!

3. Installation was easy because it features SureSafe installation. This means the seat is equipped with quick Connectors and Latch Guides for a safe and quick installation — definitely a great feature when you’re a busy parent. {Check out this great car seat installation video for tips if you need help!}

4. Zane’s favorite part: TWO cupholders! One for water and one for juice, he decided. 🙂 I love that they’re built right into the sides of his seat so I don’t have to drive distracted and try to locate a missing cup.

5. The seat features NASA-developed OUTLAST® Performance Fabric which helps balance body temperature — this means a more comfortable ride!

Aside from all the features that make the seat easy to install and comfortable to ride in, it’s full of safety features as well. It’s been designed and tested for structural integrity at energy levels approximately 2X the federal crash test standard. It meets or exceeds all applicable Federal Safety Standards. I think this is very impressive.
