Picking out a car seat was one of the most intimidating tasks I completed as a soon-to-be parent. I can remember how daunting it was knowing that your brand new bundle of joy would be protected by the piece of equipment you selected and how you weren't allowed to leave the hospital with your baby without first having a car seat properly installed.
Summer Infant has been designing products to keep your children safe both inside and outside of the home, and now they've created a travel system with safety at the heart of the design. I recently had the chance to review the Prodigy Infant Car Seat in Uptown. Keep reading to learn more!
The Summer Infant Prodigy Infant Car Seat in Uptown includes all of the features you've come to expect from a high-end car seat, such as newborn head and body support, fully-adjustable canopy to block the sun's harmful rays, a 5-point harness and 3-position carrying handle. Its most innovative feature, however, is the SafeGuard 1-Adjust harness system. This unique, no-rethread system automatically adjusts to fit baby for a perfect ride every time.
The Prodigy Infant Base includes one-of-a-kind SmartScreen Technology, which guides you through the simple three-step process while the unique Belt Tightening Sytem allows for easy and secure installation. Parents no longer need to climb into the car and struggle to install the base. The Prodigy Base requires 3 "AA" batteries (included).
The Summer Infant Prodigy Infant Car Seat features:
- SafeGuard 1-Adjust harness system, which adjusts to allow a fast and snug fit every time. No need to re-thread the straps.
- 2-piece newborn head and body support to accommodate a perfect fit for low birth-weight babies. Head support can be used independent of body support.
- Designed for babies 4-32lbs.; has a 5-point harness system, 2 crotch buckle positions, 3 position handle and full canopy.
- Infant Car Seat Base in Gray features unique SmartScreen technology, which ensures proper installation of the car seat every ride.
- Easy-to-use, precise Belt Tightening System firmly fastens the base to car and the SmartScreen technology lets you know when you've achieved the appropriate tension.
I have to admit that I was simply blown away by the myriad of well-thought out features in the Summer Infant Prodigy Infant Car Seat. When Riley was born and I was a brand-new mommy, I can remember being scared to death that I was doing something wrong when it came to her car seat. She was so small and defenseless and depended solely on me for her health and survival. I couldn't let her down and being aware of the staggering statistics involving improper car seat installation, I was terrified that somehow I had made a mistake that would end up harming her.
I love how Summer Infant has completely taken the guesswork out of properly installing both the car seat in your car, as well as placing your child securely in their seat. Now you can rest easy knowing that your little bundle of joy is protected when you travel. I'm also thrilled with how Summer Infant thought to make the Prodigy Infant Car Seat part of a complete travel system, which includes the option to purchase a coordinated stroller as well as additional car seat bases. Summer Infant has truly created a well-designed travel solution for every parent's needs with the Prodigy Infant Car Seat and Travel System.
I couldn't be happier with the new Summer Infant Prodigy Infant Car Seat, for it is the hallmark of classic design, safety and style, all rolled into one! If you would like to be 100% sure that your infant is safe and secure while in their car seat, then don't hesitate to purchase the Prodigy Infant Car Seat.
