On the road again.. with Evenflo Platinum SecureKid DLX

This review is for a campaign in collaboration with Evenflo and Latina Bloggers Connect. I received a complimentary Evenflo Platinum SecureKid DLX All-in-One Booster Car Seat and will be compensated for this review, however, all opinions are my own.

When I first became a mom, one of the things I was most excited about was the car seat. I even installed the car seat into my husbands truck months before my due date, just so I can see how it looked. Then the time came to bring my newborn home from the hospital, and I checked and checked again, and made sure that she was snug as a bug in a rug. Now, skip ahead 12 months or so. My almost 30 pound baby in her car seat was just so heavy! I couldn't wait for the day that she would be front facing, and in a big girl seat.
Living in Southern California, it is pretty much impossible to stay at home every day, there is just too much to see and do around here. Almost 4 years after her first drive home in her infant car seat, my littlest is always along for the ride. Besides the everyday morning car ride to school, we spend a lot of time hanging out in the car. We are always headed out the door, on an adventure to somewhere new, like Adventure City or Pacific Park at the Santa Monica Pier, or to one of our more frequent stops like the Los Angeles Zoo or Natural History Museum.
If you travel at all with children, you know what is most important. Safety and Comfort. Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of making sure you have everything you need for your kids, something will be forgotten. My girls have outgrown the bottles and diaper stage, so now that I don't need to remember the diaper bag, I tend to forget more. Whether it is a sweater, sunscreen, tissues, or heaven forbid... a snack, I will forget something. 
We have been riding around in the Evenflo Platinum SecureKid DLX All-in-One Booster Car Seat for about a month now, and we definitely achieve both safety and comfort. The advanced LATCH technology for a secure installation, makes life easier on me when I have to switch the seat back and forth between cars, just Click, Click, Push for super-fast, super-snug installation in less than 60 seconds. 
New Evenflo Platinum Protection features NASA developed Outlast Performance Fabric that helps balance your child's body temperature for a safer, more peaceful ride. You can find more detailed review of the car seat on my other post and you can find our same awesome Evenflo Platinum SecureKid DLX Platinum All-in-One Booster Car Seat now at Babies R Us.

Safe As Can Be! Thanks to Evenflo Platinum Protection Series

This review is for a campaign in collaboration with Evenflo and Latina Bloggers Connect. I received a complimentary Evenflo Platinum SecureKid DLX All-in-One Booster Car Seat and will be compensated for this review, however, all opinions are my own. 

Did you know that new mothers are 300% more likely to get into an accident than other drivers? Now, try to think back to the first time you were driving alone with your baby and he/she started to cry. The suffering that parents go through that first year, when you can't even see your child because they are rear facing, is pretty unforgettable. I remember having to pull over off the freeway, in an unfamiliar area to change a diaper, because my youngest would just not stop crying. Now, flash forward to a year later when your baby is letting you know that they are ready to face forward and see what's going on ahead of them. The fact is, the more comfortable your baby is, the less distracted us, as mothers are. And, of course, our babies deserve the best. 
Evenflo is taking safety and comfort to the next level with the introduction of the Platinum Protection Series of car seats. Check it out, the Platinum Protection Series features NASA-developed Outlast® technology, a temperature regulating fabric that keeps babies and toddlers comfortable during hot and cold weather. How perfect right? My 3 year old, the one who uses this seat, is our most fickle child and she definitely makes it known if she is uncomfortable. The fabric helps to ensure a safer, more peaceful ride for both mom and child and help prevent an accident from ever happening. 
And check out this AWESOME feature! You know when it's a super warm day and you put your baby into their car seat and the buckles are the temperature of the sun? Well, the seats in the Platinum Protection Series feature Buckle Pockets where you can tuck the buckle tongues away (the metal part), making it easier and safer to get a child in and out of the seats and ultimately protecting kids from hot buckle burns.
 
Look at those cup holders. Do you see it? There is an elastic band inside the holder that helps hold your cup snug in place, which means, less spilling and falling. Finally, it's like Evenflo heard exactly what Mom's everywhere needed!  
Lastly, the feature I want to share with you is the Side Impact Protection that the Platinum Protection Series offers. For myself I prefer to have my child use a seat that they can grow with, like this one. Notice the Side Impact Protection panels on either side of the seat, and if you scroll down to see the picture with my daughter, you can see just how protected her head is. This particular model has a weight minimum of 22 lbs and maximum of 110 lbs. So technically, both of my children (ages 3 and 5) can use this seat for a very long time. 
Now, look at that happy face! She is comfortable, and I know that she is safe. That is really all a mom can ask for. Check back in a few days to see more about our adventures with the Evenflo Platinum Protection Series car seats. 

Thanks for following along!
