Having safe car seats for our children is something that is extremely crucial to both my husband and myself. We’ve spent hours researching different seats, different brands, etc. I’ve always heard such great things about the Radian line of carseats, and have recommended them to others based upon dozens of friends’ experiences, but hadn’t tried them until now. The Radian RXT seat from Diono is really a buy-once-use-forever kind of seat. Made to work from 5 lbs to 120 lbs (no that is not a typo!!), and a slender physique to accomodate 3 seats across in most vehicles, these seats are workhorses.
I’ve never assembled a seat before. I mean, there wasn’t a lot to the assembly (at all) and it took under thirty seconds. But the seat does come folded up (these are also great for travel) so it’s nice to see how it should look (I’m visual) and like I said, set up is super simple. Pop the seat down and click it into place and you are ready to start the adjustment of straps based on your child’s height and size and then install.
The weight range of this seat for REAR facing is 5-45 lbs. That’s awesome. The recommended ages for rear facing are at least 20 lbs and 2 years of age. There is a separate base component for the rear facing installation that comes with the seat and has very thorough instructions in the manual for use. [click to continue…]
