Both of my girls are still in car seats so you know car seat safety is crazy important to us but now that we have a new baby in the house there was always a question of if we are going to use an infant seat or use a convertible car seat straight from birth. We ended up choosing an infant seat but we had no idea how quickly our big boy would grow as fast as he has. At 5 months he’s already 23lbs so we knew we should start looking into a seat that will last a long time.
We recently learned about the new Symphony™ LX with SureSafe that we thought could be perfect for Ben.
Safety is first and foremost the most important feature to me so having my child protected as much as possible is always on my mind. We’ve used Evenflo car seats before so we are familiar with them but they improved their design even further with new key features beyond just providing a comfortable ride for your child.
Getting baby in and out is always a job in itself but with convenient new Buckle Pockets (small slots on the side of the seat) getting in and out of the car doesn’t take as long anymore. This allows you to neatly tuck the metal buckles away so your child can get into their car seat more easily and safely, and you don’t need to hunt for straps under their behind or worry about the metal on the buckles burning them.
Because the Evenflo Symphony™ LX with SureSafe does accommodate children from 5lbs all the way up to 65lbs you want to make sure your baby fits in the seat correctly. The seat does come with an infant insert which provides a little lift under there bum and extra side head wing protection. e3 Side Impact™ Protection provides three layers of engineered foam designed and tested to reduce side impact forces up to 50% so when baby is too big for the insert their noggin will be fully protected.
Unlike other car seats that give your child a cup holder (if they are lucky to have one of those), they only fit one size cup. With the Evenflo Symphony™ LX with SureSafe your child can easily go from bottle to sippy with handles to one of those fatter sippy cups (you know, the ones that never fit into any cup holder) because of the handy elastic band that conforms to different sized cups!
Evenflo reminds parents where important parts of the car seat (IE: straps and chest clip) should be placed in order for your child to be the safest. The chest clip belongs across the chest, level with the armpits. The harness straps do say PLACE AT SHOULDER LEVEL but technically that’s incorrect. For Rear Facing: Straps should be at OR below shoulder level. For Forward Facing: straps should be placed at OR above shoulder level. Of course all of that is too much to write on a strap so I do appreciate the message Evenflo is trying to send and remind parents of. The great thing about the INFINITE SLIDE HARNESS™ is that they provide an easy, accurate fit and eliminates harness re-threading as your child grows. Just pull up on the straps at the same time when it’s time to adjust them!
Because the Evenflo Symphony™ LX with SureSafe can fit babies as small as 5lbs it’s important to have them in the proper position so their tiny necks don’t fall forward and cut off air circulation.
Evenflo wants to make sure you have baby reclined correctly so they’ve attached a guide on the side to follow. The seat is easily reclined by pulling on red panel on the front of the seat.
One of the coolest features, of course, is the SureSafe LATCH connector. The LATCH guide gets hooked into the LATCH anchors first then you connect the seat easily without having to find the anchors. This comes in handy for quickly being able to get the seat in and out because you always leave the LATCH guides attached. When it’s time to disconnect the seat you simply pull on the red tab.
A QUICK REVIEW OF FEATURES:
- SURESAFE INSTALLATION with LATCH guides that remain in the vehicle and Quick Connectors.
- BUCKLE POCKETS no more digging around for lost buckles or hot buckle burns.
- INFINITE SLIDE HARNESS™ provides an easy, accurate fit and eliminates harness re-threading as your child grows.
- e3 SIDE IMPACT™ reduces side impact crash forces up to 50% through an expanded zone of protection.
- 3 SEATS IN 1 use 5-65lbs. with the internal harness, then converts to a belt-positioning booster up to 110 lbs.
