"Over 30 years ago, our little yellow BABY ON BOARD® sign became a badge of pride for new parents. Soon after, we launched the first true collection of home safety products and established ourselves as the leader in child safety. This role has grown over the years as we continue to introduce new and innovative products to parents, consistently giving you the power to keep your children safe."
I have two children. Both boys were born premature. Ben weighed in at a whopping 1 lbs 7 oz, and Doug was only 2 lbs 2 oz. Ben Sr and I know the importance of Safety and finding the best car seat when it comes to kids. We had to get specialty car seats for both boys before we could bring them home from the hospital. They both weighed less then 5 lbs, and most car seats were designed for children 5 lbs and up.
Our go to company for most baby products over the years has been Safety 1st. They carry everything from the yellow Baby On Board sign, to car seats, to high chairs, to even play yards. We have been using their car seats and child safety locks in particular for many years.
When I was offered the chance to review their new Safety 1st UltraMax Air 360 4 In 1 Car Seat, I was very excited. This is the car seat of all car seats. With this, you never need to buy another one!

My favorite feature of this car seat is of course the fact that it grows with your child. We tested the seat out with both Doug who still needs a booster seat, and the newest contributing baby to my website, my niece Allison!
Doug loved how comfortable the seat is, and of course the two cup holders! Ben Sr and I love how easy it was to convert it to a toddler booster seat. All you have to do is pull the handle at the top of the seat up.
Allie was not as big of a fan at first. I think it was because she was only one week old, and not use to car seats yet.
Once I told her that the car seat had cup holders, she started to like it!
Converting the seat between infants that need to lay down, and bigger kids that can sit up is super easy as well.
The base is designed to make adjusting the position of the seat simple for parents to use with just one hand, but still very sturdy to keep your children safe.
This car seat is a little bit bigger then some of the standard car seats out there, but it is very light weight compared to other brands of grow with your child seats.
The safety measures that were taken to make sure this seat is safe were extensive. Check out this video to learn more.
