SAFTEY FIRST WITH LITTLE ONES.
This post was sponsored by CYBEX as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received the CYBEX Balios Stroller and Aton Q Infant Car Seat to facilitate my review.
Life with King lately has been a whirlwind. I swear this little boy has grown up over night and I am not ready for it. I want to keep him my baby forever. I have been really looking back at the days when he was so tiny, what thoughts I was having and what things were making me feel uneasy about becoming a mom or being a new mom. I think my biggest concern for King was safety. Growing up my dad (which he still currently does) worked for an air bag company. Yes, like the air bags that go in cars. Car safety has always been huge since I was little. We would get to go to work with my dad when they would do events and watch the consequences of not wearing a seatbelt, being buckled into a carseat correctly, or anything to that extent. This has stuck with me since I was little.
Finding the right carseat for King has been a huge deal for me. We have tried and tested a few different ones to see what we feel is the safest option, works best for our family, and is in a reasonable budget. Recently I was introduced to the CYBEX Aton Q Infant Car Seat. The Aton Q Infant Car Seat has what is called Linear Side-Impact Protection (L.S.P. System). It absorbs side impact forces. The thing that really impressed me with this carseat is the adjustable headrest and harness that is by pulling a handle at the top of the carseat. No more undoing all the straps to scoot them up for your little one when they outgrow the height they are at. The sun canopy also has UVP 50+ protection which I love for when they are super tiny and I was crazy about putting King in the sun.
We have loved our Balios Stroller. The seat easily comes off so you can attach your Aton Q Infant Carseat also if you have a tiny little one. This stroller folds up and doesn’t take up the entire space of my trunk which I love. It folds so easily and it also unfolds easily. Zach’s favorite part is the adjustable handle for when you are pushing it. The sun canopy on the stroller also has UVP50+ protection which I love so I can put it over King, it also extends with a zipper if you want your canopy to cover your little one even more. The wheels are “never flat” wheels so you can use it on all terrains which we love for our adventures.
You can purchase both the carseat and the stroller at BUYBUY BABY which makes it easy and is always one of my favorite stores to shop onlin
