Safety 1st onBoard35 Air Infant Car Seat

There are so many options these days when it comes to car seats so you want to make sure you research and find a car seat that will work for your family and baby! Safety 1st helps you to start your little one off on the right road with the onBoard 35 Air Infant Car Seat featuring Air Protect Side Impact Technology.

“Safety 1st engineers designed Air Protect using next generation testing methods that simulate the most violent types of side impact crashes, those with vehicle intrusion. Using this advanced methodology, Air Protect was engineered to defend your child in two vital ways. During a crash, the system immediately shields your child’s head from the impact. In a second layer of defense, Air Protect allows air to escape from the headrest: channeling crash energy away from your child, creating more ride down time. It is this double layer of protection that makes Air Protect technology unique.”

That’s a pretty confusing method but basically what it means is Safety 1st realized that 1 in 4 car crashes involving children are side impact collisions and they are the deadliest type of collision for children, accounting for 1 in 3 child fatalities; nearly all of which are caused by head trauma- so they set out to find a seat that would help prevent this and they succeeded!

The Safety 1st onBoard 35 Air Infant Car Seat features:

-Rear facing 4-35 pounds and up to 32 inches in height
-Featuring Air Protect revolutionary side impact technology
-Immediately reduces side impact forces through the precise release of air
-Extended use from a tiny 4 to a full 35 pounds
-17% more leg room than most infant car seats
-Customizable insert and low harness slots make the seat ideal for preemies and adjustable for growing babies
-Carry Curve Handle features ergonomic design
-Base Belt Lock easily secures your vehicle seat belt during installation
-One Click LATCH installation system

Emmitt fit perfectly in this seat at eight months old and still at over one year fits with room to grow. Normally by one year you have to switch to a convertible car seat because there just it no room for your little ones feet to fit. The fact that this car seat can hold a child up to 32 inches tall with 17% more leg room makes this car seat one that will last much longer. This seat boasts four harness slot positions and three crotch strap positions so you can get a great fit!

Safety 1st car seats are known for being super easy to transport and this seat does not let me down. The specially designed Carry Curve handle makes this handle super easy for me to carry to and from the house and store. Because the seat is so easy to carry, there are very few jerks and movements that shake the car seat too much. Therefore if I take Emmitt out of the car and he is sleeping, the odds of him staying asleep the entire time we are in the store are very high! With this seat there is no risk of the handle not being locked for safety lifting because there is an indicator that shows green when the handle is locked!

I love that Safety 1st added the most important information about the car seat to stickers and placed them on the side of the car seat. I recommend reading every manual for every baby gear item you get but I know that some people do not do that (or forget). These simple, easy to read stickers help with installation and show you where the straps and top of the car seat must be for your child to be safe.

I have never had a baby leave the hospital under 6lbs. But some times things happen and moms and dads are blessed with teeny tiny bundles to take home. However there are very few seats that you can fit a 4 or 5lb baby in. Most infant seats do claim they start at 4 to 5lbs but they simply don’t fit small newborns and preemies all that well.  The onBoard 35 Air literally looks like it was designed with preemies in mind. From the small chest clip, to the specifically newborn designed angle ball (the lower 45 degree angle helps smaller babies whose heads still flop forward prevent airway obstruction) , to the customizable insert and low harness slots this seat is perfect for big and tiny babies alike!

The latch base is also very easy to use. There is a foot that allows you to adjust the recline angle. It is super easy to increase or decrease the height you need. I love the upgraded latch hooks with push button instead of the old fashioned clips. This base was so easy to get tight and secure into my seat.

You can use the Safety 1st Clic It! Universal Infant Car Seat Carrier to make this a travel system too!
