This contest is now closed. Congratulations to Mami2cjn (comment #4) chosen by Random.org. Hope your daughter enjoys her brand new Complete Air Convertible Carseat! Thanks to everyone who participated in this contest.
When my son had outgrown his infant carrier, I asked everyone which convertible car seats were best for kids. At that point in time, no car seats had any side impact protection. Therefore, when I saw Safety 1st announce it’s new Complete Air Convertible Car Seat, I knew we needed to put this new baby to the test.
- Air-filled head wings provides protection from side collisions
- 40 pound rear-facing weight limit (one of the tallest rear-facing carseats available toady)
- 3 crotch strap positions
- Head wings make for nice pillows during car naps
- Easy installation
- Stylish, easy to clean fabric
- Even with 3 settings, the crotch buckle might still be snug for older kids
- For smaller cars (aka VW Golf), installation as a rear-facing car seat will probably require a pool noodle or towel to get a comfortable 45 degree angle recline. Safety 1st’s Complete Air SE and LX models cost more, but come with a 4-position recline to deal specifically with this issue
All in all, I would definitely recommend the Safety 1st Complete Air Convertible Carseat. Considering how important side impact head protection is, this car seat just cannot be beat. Here’s my full review of the Safety 1st Complete Air Car Seat with Side Impact Protection.
