Baby Trend Flex-Loc Review

The Baby Trend Flex-Loc is an infant car seat with promising features and a sleek design. It uses flex technology which makes it easy to install into the car. Flex-Loc means that the part of the latch straps which is normally attached to the latch anchors in the car are flexible.

This makes it ideal for small cars. It can hold babies between 5-30 pounds and up to 30cm height. This is great because a parent can use this car seat up to when the baby is about 2-years. When it comes to safety, this infant car seat doesn’t disappoint. It uses the amazing EPS Foam for padding, which is very light weight and super force absorbent. This means that in case of a car crush it provides superior protection. It has extra padding for the sides giving it great side impact baby protection. It also has a boot. Now, that’s something really nice about this car seat especially if you live in really cold places. The boot is like a blanket which is easily attached to the bottom of the car seat. It covers the baby giving extra insulation. It...

Uppababy Mesa Infant Car Seat

Uppababy Mesa is a serious contender for best infant car seat currently on the market. The car seat and base combo is amazing and would satisfy the needs of any parent. We would have liked to see the Uppababy Mesa be compatible with more baby strollers. Currently it is compatibly with the Uppababy Vista or Cruz. The Uppababy Mesa base has a unique base. Uppababy calls it the smart secure system and it makes installing the base a cinch. The base LATCH connectors or ISOFIX if your in Europe comes out when you press the orange buttons on the front of the base. You connect the LATCH connectors to your car seat, if it was made after 2002, you push down on the base until the red window screen turns green. This base installs within seconds and because of the Smart Secure System, the Uppababy Mesa is one of the safest infant seats on the market. Lets face it, the more difficult a car seat is to install, the more likely hood a parent is to install it incorrectly. If you don’t want to use the LATCH connectors, for parents with older cars or incompatibility issues, the base comes with a really nice lock-off system for the seat belt. If you are installing the car seat without the base, you should know that it does not have a European...
