Last month my Jazzy turned 2. I’ve been joking that she had been acting like a twonager way before that. So far it has been…interesting? This stage in a child’s life doesn’t last forever, so I’m happy to celebrate it while it lasts. Being officially two also means she’s outgrown her infant car seat. As we have watched her grow, we have been looking to transition her into a convertible car seat.
Celebrating Milestones: Transitioning From Infant To A Convertible Car Seat
This post is sponsored by diono but the content and opinion expressed here are my own.
From her undying obsession with the Paw Patrols to figuring out that leaves are fun to play with, watching Jazzy reach so many milestones has been a joy. She’s so curious and always ready for an adventure (even when it’s right in her backyard).
She is such a bright and happy child. I couldn’t ask for more. When we go on car rides, my priority is to make sure she is safe. The diono radian rXT gives me peace of mind.
diono radian rXT Review
I was recently sent the new diono radian rXT to review on the blog. This came at the perfect time because Jazzy is too big for her infant car seat. The radian rXT comfortably seats rear-facing children from 2.3 – 20.5 kg (5 – 45 lbs), forward-facing children from 10 – 29.5 kg (22 – 65 lbs) and up to 144cm (57″) in a 5-point harness, then converts to a booster for children between 23 – 54 kg (50 – 120 lbs)*.
Having a car seat that is big enough for her is so important, but it’s even more critical to ensure that the car seat is installed correctly. This is not the time to opt out of reading the user manual. After going through the manual with uncle Rene, we finally installed her new convertible car seat.
Uncle Rene is making sure the UAS latches are fastened, and the installation is tight.
If you are not 110% sure that your car seat is installed correctly, I highly suggest making an appointment to a car seat clinic in your area.
