If you haven’t heard of the Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat, you are in for a treat! This is one spectacular car seat.  When my grandson was born a year ago this month I wanted my son and daughter-in-law to have this car seat so they would not have to purchase another one.  Since that didn’t happen luckily they received an infant car seat for Zakary’s baby shower. So when it was approaching his first birthday I was on the hunt once again for a car seat.

What I love about this Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat.

  • First off this car seat will start your baby off from the moment you leave the hospital (or for their first car ride if you don’t use the hospital).
  • Don’t let the size fool you, this car seat fits comfortably rear-facing children from 5-45 lbs in your vehicle.  This way you can decide how long you want them rear-facing.  It won’t impede their leg room and it will fit nicely without crowding the front passenger.  An ‘infant’ base is included in housing the car seat properly.
  • Also, you can choose if you would like for your little one forward-facing it is safe for children 20 – 80 lbs in a 5-point harness, then converts to a booster for children up to 120 lbs.

  • The full steel frame and aluminum reinforced sides provide unmatched safety. This was one of the selling points that impressed me and felt important to me.
  • Another example of how much this car seat impresses me is that it is NCAP crash tested, the industry benchmark for verifying child seat performance in severe accident conditions!

Some additional features that impressed me as if the above weren’t enough:

  • Infant body support cushions and memory foam for added comfort (that is not pictured as Zakary is too old for it but I will make sure to include a picture.)
  • Energy absorbing EPS foam and side impact protection provides added safety
  • Safestop® energy-absorbing harness
  • Additional forward-facing rest positions to accommodate different types of shaped vehicle seats, 12-position adjustable headrest, 5 shoulder and 3 buckle positions deliver a comfortable ride.
  • Rear-facing tether capability
  • LATCH installation
  • Additional set of harness pads included to use only when the child is over 65 lbs in the 5-point harness
  • Expandable sides and long seat bottom allow proper leg support
  • Low-sitting profile makes it easy for your child to board
  • Angled cup holder keeps a variety of drinks upright and within easy reach
  • Cover is machine washable and dryable
  • Rubber bottom grips for non-slip installation
  • 10-year life
