Diono Rainier

One item at the top of my MUST HAVE list for baby is a safe, durable, long lasting car seat. When you have kids it becomes a whole new world for mom and what's safe for your child . As a mom to now three little ones ages 5, 3, and newborn the two things I look for in a car seat are SAFETY and Life span, yes life span is definitely important to me. 

If you have ever been shopping for a car seat you know they aren't cheap and many times you will have to buy multiple seats during the time your little one needs one to fit safety requirements.  Instead of buying an infant seat and then one suitable for when my newborn becomes a toddler I wanted to get just one car seat that goes from Infant to Toddler. 

The Diono Rainier is what I call the "Mother of all car seats" and I felt like I hit the jackpot when I first discover this carseat. The Rainier by Diono goes from 5 lbs all the way up to 120 lbs and is convertible and converts into a booster. With a 5 point harness I can be worry free in the safety department when your children are in the car and are properly buckled in. 

KEY FEATURES (From the site): 
  • Full steel frame and aluminum reinforced sides for unmatched safety
  • Reinforced extra deep sidewalls lined with energy-absorbing foam give Rainier superior head and body protection
  • Comfortably seats rear-facing children from 5 to 50 lbs
  • Highest forward-facing capacity of any car seat in a 5-point harness: from 20-90 lbs (up to 57" in height)
  • Converts to booster mode for children between 50 and 120 lbs. (up to 57" in height)
  • Unique SuperLATCH system that makes installation easy
  • Space saving design allows extra room for passengers while providing spacious interior for child
  • Folds flat for travel and is FAA certified
  • NCAP crash tested, the industry benchmark for verifying child seat performance in severe accident conditions

My newborn daughter seems to have no complaints about her Diono Rainier car seat. Miss. Gwen came home from the hospital weighing just 7 lbs and fit perfectly in her seat. Our entire way home she slept without a peep. This mama swears this car seat comes equipped with sleepy dust, now that Miss. Gwen is 3 weeks old she still sleeps during every car ride. Sometimes I wish I could sit down in her car seat and sleep the whole drive. 

The Diono Rainier has a 12 year lifespan. YES I SAID 12 YEARS! So even though it may be pricey to some, you have to look at it as an investment. The Rainier will be the only car seat you will have to purchase the entire time your little one requires a safety seat . The Rainier by Diono is by far the easiest car seat to install and only takes a full minutes to get a nice tight fit. With a widest width of 18.5 inches you can easily fit multiple car seats in the back. I currently have three children in car seats and we just got another Rainier for my 5 year old son and plan to purchase another for my 3 year old daughter. I wish I had discovered Diono car seats back when my first child was born now that I know how durable they are and that they really will last the entire time we are in need of safety restraints. We can really tell how much Diono prides themselves in providing the safest car seats possible for newborns and toddlers.

I can't tell you how much I want to try one of these. We need a second seat for my husbands car and we've been looking into them. Your daughter sure makes it comfy. Do they make them in adult sizes, too?! ;)
