Baby Jogger City View Space Saving best convertible car seat
The Best Convertible Car Seat If You Love Your Small Car:
Kids change everything, don’t they? From baby gear to sleep schedules and everything in between, it’s crazy to think of just how much your life changes once you have little ones and even more so, how much of it we’re just learning along the way as parents! And while many parents also change out their cars to a larger SUV or minivan when they grow their family, for me I wanted to stick it out in my compact sedan for as long as possible.
I still remember the first time I was started searching for a car seat online. With all the different options available, I had no idea what to look for or what would work for my lifestyle. For the past 3 months, I’ve been using the Baby Jogger City View Space Saving All-in-One car seats with Dylan and Mei in my compact car, and I can definitely say that this car seat hits all the marks in safety, convenience, and style. Safety is, of course, my topmost priority, so I love seeing that Baby Jogger® Car Seats are held up to the highest standards and tested to withstand nearly double the impact force that is tested on the standard FMVSS 213 crash test.
I also never realized that having a car seat that’s specifically designed with a slim profile would make a difference, but I can definitely say that this is now a huge perk when it comes to the Baby Jogger City View car seat! There are times when we have guests in town and want to go out for dinner or errands, and it’s just so convenient not to have to take 2 separate cars. Even with two car seats in the back seat, there’s still space to fit an adult in between even in my small compact car! And while the design is sleek and designed to save space, you can tell that no compromises were made to the frame that is reinforced with steel for extra durability.
Car seats are also big investment purchases, especially when you need to buy multiple, so I love that the Baby Jogger City View converts into 3 different ways to ride. Newborns starting at 5lbs can use the Baby Jogger City View in the rear-facing mode, switch to the forward-facing mode when the child reaches the maximum rear-facing height or weight rating, and even convert to a highback booster mode starting at 40 lbs and going all the way up to 100 lbs. The Baby Jogger City View is the best convertible car seat and truly the only car seat you’ll ever need!
And even with all the different ways to ride with the Baby Jogger City View car seat, installation is still a breeze with the push-button LATCH system. No more pinching my hands trying to get the latch hooks to attach to my car. I also may have taken a few moments to rejoice when I was able to install the car seat on my own (without the help of hubby!) in under 5 minutes and didn’t have to contort myself or work up a sweat!).
I also wish I had known this when Dylan and Mei were babies, but having an anti-rebound bar on your rear-facing car seat is so, so important. Anti-rebound bars (ARBs) have actually proven to provide a 45% reduction in the rearward movement of the car seat during a frontal collision. While ARBs are not required by law, any time you can minimize the motion in a crash, you are minimizing the potential for injury. I love that the Baby Jogger City View car seat comes with the SecureStop Anti-Rebound Bar included by default! It’ always a good idea for parents to refresh on best car seat installation practices and tips for ensuring children are correctly buckled in as car seat technology is always improving.
Adrian and I talk all the time about baby products that are “good buys” for parents and seriously, the Baby Jogger City View car seat ranks among the top of that list! It’s not often you find a baby product that fits so well into your life that you don’t feel like you’re having to make any sacrifices or compromises when it comes to juggling parenthood. Definitely check out the Baby Jogger City View car seat if you want a “one-and-done” solution for your little ones that will also make your life easier too!
pin for later!
