Another area where I am a bit safety-obsessed is choosing the right car seats. Any time a child is in a moving vehicle, there's a certain amount of risk involved. I have never been in an accident, and haven't even gotten a speeding ticket or other moving violation. Even if you're the safest driver in the world like me, it's a good idea to make sure that your children's car seats are loaded with the best safety features, just in case an accident happens. After all, you can't control the actions of other motorists, and it's always a good idea to be prepared.
A distracted driver is a risk on the road, and nothing can be more distracting to a mom driving than a crying baby or toddler. According to a study conducted by American Baby and Safe Kids Worldwide, new moms are 300% more likely to get into an accident than other drivers, in part due to tending to an upset baby.
I know I probably sound like a total Helicopter Mom, but that's okay. When it comes to my babies, which just happen to be the most precious cargo in the world, there's no such thing as being too safe. That's why I was thrilled to have the opportunity to check out the Evenflo ProComfort Symphony™ DLX All-in-One car seat.
Here are some of the key features of this car seat:

One of the features I love the most is the Gel Matrix™ Technology. This engineered material dials up the level of comfort, keeping your child content so you can focus on the road. This engineered material reduces pressure point build-up, enhancing your child’s comfort so they maintain a proper seating position. This helps to ensure a safer, more peaceful ride for both mom and child and help prevent an accident from ever happening.
Luckily, the folks at Evenflo offer SureLATCH® Technology. This makes for the easiest installation ever! Simply click the LATCH into your vehicle, push down, and you will be able to see and hear the seat automatically tighten. Truly, it doesn't get much easier than that!
Xander, my 3 year old, couldn't wait to try out his new car seat. It only took seconds to install in my Mercedes, and then we were ready to roll! We decided to take a trip to get some ice cream, which made the kids incredibly happy.
I also really appreciate the visual safety guides on the buckles and straps. You have no idea how many times I have had to tell my husband that the buckle needs to be at armpit level. On this car seat, these very instructions are printed on the harness buckle itself. There will be no excuses for forgetting now, and I will feel much safer knowing my little man is in his seat properly.
The only thing I wish were different? Well, I do wish it was a wee bit narrower. I have to fit 3 kids in my backseat, and poor Kyle feels a bit squished in the middle, since he gets sandwiched in between 2 car seats.
Overall, I am definitely very impressed with the Evenflo ProComfort Symphony™ DLX. This car seat truly offers everything a parent needs in a car seat. It's got amazing safety features, offers a very comfortable ride for little ones, and it grows with your child! So if you're an expecting parent, a new parent, or the parent of a toddler, definitely be sure to check out this amazing car seat from Evenflo. I think you'll be as delighted as we are!
