Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat
Safety is top priority for me, especially when it comes to my kids. That is why I am very particular about the car seats that I use. The tricky part is finding something that I feel good about and my kids feel good IN! I was very excited to learn about the Radian RXT by Diono. This is a fascinating car seat that appeared to do it all! I had to put it to the test on my 2 year old.
The RadianRXT is a highly versatile car seat that is meant to grow with your child and therefore last for years. It fits rear-facing children from 5-45 lbs, forward-facing children from 20-80 lbs in 5-point harness, then converts to a booster for children up to 120 lbs. Can you imagine a car seat that will work for your child from 5 pounds to 120? That was so exciting to me because we have been through many seats with my 5 year. With each new size and stage we have had to purchase a new seat.

I was impressed with how quickly it snaps into place and ready to use. The instruction manual was very easy to understand. It is easy to snap back into portable mode which was also something I loved! This is awesome for travel, whether on a plane or wearing on your back as you travel. It folds up and locks into place for easy storage when not in use.
As far a safety it definitely met my standards. I was able to adjust everything to fit him perfectly. The Diono car seats have been repeatedly tested for safety. Diono has all the information for you to see on their site. You can read about all the crash research , crash test results as well as crash test videos. The information was enough to make me fall in love. I felt like it was worthy of holding my precious cargo.
Now what did my little guy thing about it?
He could not wait to give it a try! He anxiously waited as I opened the box and got it ready for him. Once it was all set he was ready for a ride. I loved it! It is made with Memory Foam for extra comfort. Talk about luxury for little ones! He appeared very comfortable. He loved the easy access cup holder. He also loved the head support and the super soft seat
This is the car seat that kids and moms can love and agree on!
