I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own. I received this car seat for free in order to facilitate this review but all opinions are my own.
I have been eyeing better quality car seats for Zeva for a while now because she is my last baby and her current car seat is really a plain Jane compared to the higher end car seats on the market. When I was given the chance to review the EvenFlo’s ProComfort Symphony™ DLX I was totally thrilled for Zeva.
Did you know that “according to a study conducted by American Baby and Safe Kids Worldwide, new moms are 300% more likely to get into an accident than other drivers, in part due to tending to an upset baby?” I found this statistic to be quite alarming. However, as a mother of three kids I can honestly see some real truth to this one. When Zeva was still a little baby she didn’t travel well at all. She HATED being in a car seat. I wish I had this seat when she was born. In fact, I could have because this car seat actually works for children ranging in weight from 5-110 lbs. making it the only car seat I would have needed. Hind sight is 20/20 though, and if I had bought it I never would have thought to do a blog review of it. I have this All-in-One car seat now, and I know it will last until she grows out of needing a protective seat in the car.
Zeva thought she was be given a little prince car seat the way she acted when she saw the box at our front door step when we got home. She couldn’t wait to get into it. Zeva has always been jealous of the fact that Delbert had cup holders in his boaster seat. You could tell she was pleased that she has two cup holders of her own. Plus she’s more comfortable in this seat. I personally gain so much from her owning this car seat.
I have peace of mind knowing that she is in a seat that offers her so much more protection. Since she is now more comfortable in her seat since it is made with Gel Matrix™ Technology, she doesn’t fuss nearly as much on the road. That is a MAJOR bonus for me because now I can focus more on the road instead hearing her fuss due to discomfort. I also love how securely it fits in the seat. I literally just connected the straps to my little clip section in my vehicle (not sure what that is called) and the car seat didn’t wiggle or budge when we shook it one bit. Then when we strapped it in the rest of the way, it really felt as stable as a rock!
Since I live in SC the insides of our cars get extremely HOT and her buckles on her old car seat would get scolding HOT to the point that it literally felt like they were burning her legs and my fingers as I would attempt to strap her in. The EvenFlo’s ProComfort Symphony™ DLX has a feature called “Buckle Pockets that neatly and smartly tuck the buckle tongues away.” I wouldn’t say that they are overly easy to find when you have a child in the seat squirming like Zeva does, but I will say it’s nice to know that my fingers are not going to be burnt from the summer heat.
Overall, Zeva and I are tickled pink with this car seat. I am ecstatic that she has it. I know that she has extra protection and she’s as snug as a bug in a bed but in our car. She feels like a big girl in her princess seat.
