As we slowly prepare for baby #4, we’ve realized something ~ a lot of our baby stuff is in pretty bad shape. I guess that’s to be expected after getting so much use from three kids and lending some of it out to friends. Stuff gets old, broken (or even peed on by the cat.) Did you know car seats get old? That they have an expiration date? Yup, that’s right. Safety regulations change and technology improves. Materials also wear down and manufacturers do not test older seats. (Be sure to check out the expiration date on the sticker on the side of your car seats to be sure your child is safe.)
Although we loved our Graco SnugRide, it’s ready for retirement. Cue music. Enter Inertia Infant Car Seat by Baby Trend.
I’m so excited to share this car seat’s unique features with you. It is totally awesome. The Inertia seat has all new technology in its controlled motion base, so it can respond to crash forces by rotating more upright, which results in better force distribution.
It’s easy to install with its LATCH connectors and the base has four different recline positions! I’m super excited about the four different recline positions – could this possibly mean less crying in the car during the newborn stage? Less discomfort for the kids who
don’t like the car/suffer from acid reflux? I cannot wait to see how my baby does in this state of the art infant seat!
Another great feature is the 5 point safety harness. Boy, have things changed. With our current seats, we have to unhook and rethread the safety straps as the kids get bigger. Not anymore! With the Inertia Infant Car Seat, all you have to do is turn a knob at the back of the seat and the straps will automatically adjust with a twist of the knob! How easy is that? Technology sure is improving! It’s a parent’s dream! Oh, and the hard latch attachments are also a huge win – no more knees to the seats and yanking on straps to make sure that seat is tight. We are big fans of the rigid latch connectors to guarantee baby’s safety!
The Inertia Infant Car Seat retails for $179.99 at Babies R US and can be found on Amazon. I love how trendy and fashionable the Horizon print is – perfect for a girl or a boy! Here are some other great features you will love:
