“Air Protect™ Technology has been designed to defend against the biggest threat to children on the road today; side impact collisions. Side impact are by far the deadliest type of collision for children, accounting for one in three child fatalities; nearly all of which are caused by head trauma. The placement of Air Protect™ Technology on the car seat diverts crash forces away from a child’s head, the most vulnerable place in a side impact crash.”
Before I even get into all the wonderful features of the Safety 1st Air Protect car seat, let me just say it is B-E-A-UTIFUL! I had no idea car seats could actually be stunning, but I promise you, this one is. Now, I may be a little biased due to the fact that my love for the color orange borderlines on an obsession, but it really is fabulous. When this arrived on my doorstep I was literally squealing with joy. I do have to admit I had my dad do the installation, (Hubby was in Afghanistan) but I did watch! =) It went well- a little tricky at first, but what car seat isn't a little difficult the first time? Especially when it's SO important to get it right. We put it rear-facing for my 19 pounder. I LOVE that you can put your child in it as early as 5 pounds. We've been using the infant car seat up until now, but it's been a long time since we actually brought the car seat in everywhere we went. We could have been using this seat for a long time! And obviously, the most important thing is that this is an extremely safe car seat! It uses Air Protect Technology which protects your child’s most vulnerable and important feature- his head! On side impact the Air Protect releases air and reduces crash forces around the child’s head and provides a double layer of security. 1 in 4 crashes involve side collisions so this feature is critical in protecting your child. Here is more information on Air Protect Technology. I am so happy and grateful for the peace of mind I now have whenever I take my child on the road, even for a short distance. I know he is safe in his new car seat! A big thank you to Safety 1st for generously providing me the Air Protect to review!
