A New Recaro Car Seat!

Recaro very generously sent Sophia a car seat! I'm kind of crazy about it....a little sad, though, because it's too big for her...

No worries though. Levi was more than happy to test drive it. Actually, I think he plans on stealing it from her. Obviously, he hasn't caught on that it's pink, but I don't think he cares. It's apparently the comfiest car seat he's ever sat in. You'd think he'd gotten his own personal recliner...

Recaro sent us a caraway for Fia. It's too big for her right now, so Levi is test driving it.

Recaro sent us their ProSport toddler car seat. Until Sophia grows into it, she'll be chillin' in Levi's convertible seat. Then someday we'll have to pry it away from him....or maybe between now and then he'll realize it's a bit girly and give it up.

I must say, though, that I'm really impressed. Levi was beginning to get uncomfortable in the harness on his old seat. I was debating about switching it to a booster, but he's only 3! The Recaro harness capacity on this seat goes up to 90 pounds. I don't think he'll outgrow that before I'm ready to switch him. Big smiles from this mama.

Also, did you see the sides of that thing?! They are huge. Here's a better look...

Not only do those 'wings' make for an awesome nap, but they're designed for some serious side impact protection. How could you not love that?

The only drawback is that it's not a convertible seat, so if you're looking for something to really grow with your baby you might be interested in Recaro's ProRides. But, if you're just looking for a forward facing harness to booster seat, then this one is worth checking out.

*Recaro gave me this car seat in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own and very much genuine.


  1. That looks like a great car seat and comfy too!

  2. Wow - that looks great! We've been shopping around for a new car-seat will have to check these out.
    Waahhhh don't ya just hate it when they grow so darn fast!? ;*(

  3. Wow! That thing looks so comfy, I want to sit in it!

  4. What a nice car seat! Way to go!


I'm so glad you're here!
