Transitioning Car Seats with your Little Ones

When you have three kids that are all in different levels of car seats, having a seat that adjusts to your needs is ideal. I currently have one in a booster seat, one in a highback booster, and one in a rear-facing car seat — soon to be forward facing. Due to our ever-changing needs we recently tried the Evenflo Transitions 3-in-1 Booster.

The Evenflo Transitions 3-in-1 Booster features an innovative design allowing you to transition the seat between three different modes of use. This seat can be used as a harness booster, high back booster and a no back booster. Sporty style elements appeal to children, as will the integrated cup holders. The seat accommodates children ranging from 22 to 110 lbs. This combination booster provides an exceptional value for a seat with such a wide support range combined with an array of innovative features.

What the kids loved

My five-year-old daughter really liked this seat because the straps fit across her chest perfectly, without digging into her neck. The head support made a really great rest for when napping, and she loved the built in cupholders!

My 16-month old even gave it a try (she is still rear-facing, but we let her sit in it). She was thrilled to be facing forward, but also that her view wasn’t inhibited.

What mom loved

There are several features that I really liked about this seat. Of course safety is always a high priority, but beyond the high level of safety, here are some fun features I was pleased to see on the Evenflo seat:

A secure belt path. I love that the belt path actually keeps the car’s seatbelt in place. I’ve used seats where the seatbelt is always popping out of place, which makes it uncomfortable and probably unsafe for the child.

The one-handed height adjustment. Nothing is more tedious than having to take all the seat coverings off just to re-route the belt on the car seat. With this one-handed height adjustment, there is no need to re-thread!

The snap away latch storage area. Having a place to store those latch connectors a huge plus. They can actually be dangerous in a crash if just left to fly around the vehicle, and since two of my children are too heavy for latch, the convenience storage right on the back of the seat is a huge thing.

Speaking of latch, the SureSafe system is awesome. Not only does it make for a quicker install, it is much easier to snap in and release!

Buckle pockets. I love that there is a storage area for the buckles so that you can keep them out of the hot sun, and you don’t have to dig around under baby to find them every time. Great feature!

Some additional features that I really like:

  • The harness adjustment is simple and easy, and located right up front.
  • The built in cup holders are great, as my kids love having a drink handy on a long trip.

Here is what the Evenflo Advanced Transitions 3-in-1 Booster Car Seat features:

  • 3 modes in 1:
  • 5 point harnesss 22-65 lbs
  • High-back booster for 30 – 110 lbs.
  • No-back booster for 40-110lbs
  • Seat features three separate foam layers of different densities that prevent pressure point build up
  • Comfort Tech cushions are comprised of three layers – comfort, support, and endurance – that works together to equalize pressure points, keeping kids safe and comfortable
  • Two Position Recline
  • Height Adjustable Headrest
  • Dual Integrated Cup Holders
  • Buckle pockets that tuck the buckle tongues away, making it easier and safer for kids to get in and out of the seats and ultimately protecting kids from buckle burns.

    I think products that grow with your child are genius! This evenflo car seat sounds great. I would have rather invested in this seat than the one I did for my son. He’s now outgrown it and we need to buy a booster seat.

    We went from a car seat to a separate booster seat. My little one is almost big enough to come out of it.
