Safety 1st UltraMax Air 360 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seat #sponsored #Safety1st

Thank you to Safety 1st for providing me with an UltraMax Air 360 4-in-1 Car Seat for review.  All opinions are my own and you should try out the product for yourself.

One of the most important pieces of equipment you buy for your children is their car seat.  I have had various car seats over the past seventeen years as a mom of three.  The main things that I look for in a car seat are:  safety, comfort, affordability and longevity.  

Safety 1st UltraMax Air 360 4-in-1 Car Seat

I have spent lots of time researching specs and making lists to compare seats in my price range over the years.  Today's technology makes it less intimidating and time consuming, since now they are making seats that can grow with your child.  That means only needing one seat for each stage!  {I wish they had this when my son was born}

I was recently asked to test out the Safety First UltraMax Air 360 4-in-1 car seat.  It can be used from 4 to 120 lbs.  It can be used as a rear facing seat for babies 4 to 22 pounds, an extended rear facing seat for children from 15 to 50 pounds, a forward facing 5- point harness car seat from 22 to 65 pounds, and as a seat belt positioned booster seat from 40 to 120 pounds (and 57 inches tall).  Simply put, this seat is amazing!

As soon as I got it out of the box, I was impressed with the construction of this seat.  Its steel reinforced frame is a bit heavier and wider than I am used to, so my hubby installed it for me.  Installation was fairly easy and didn't take much time at all {especially since hubby is now a seasoned pro at car seat installation}.



The heaviness and bulkiness of this seat does make it difficult to take in and out of the car.  If you need a seat that is more transportable between cars {or for field trips} that might be the only down side to this convertible seat.

There were a few simple adjustments in head height and strap height that we made to fit my toddler.  The head rest lifts up and down with one hand and the straps are also easily adjustable.  The seat is deep with lots of padding for comfort.  "Cushy" is the word my five-year-old used to describe it when she tried it out before we put it in the car.  {She's a bit jealous that sissy gets the cushy seat!} 


One thing to note: the safety strap pads come off a little too easily; little miss has already taken them off several times since they have small velcro to attach them.  You may just want to remove them altogether if your child keeps playing with them like mine does.

There is a really neat feature with the ClickClean™ seat pad/cover; push a yellow button to lift it off, and voila, you can throw it in the wash.  We haven't had any messy spills yet, but you know how dirty car seats can get.  This is an awesome feature for a busy mom who doesn't want to wrestle her car seat to get the cover off!  It also has two cup holders that are removable and dish washer safe.  AB likes to use it not only for drinks, but for holding her favorite small toys as well.

Safety 1st UltraMax Air 360 4-in-1 Car Seat

Most importantly, this seat has been tested for safety.   The Safety 1st UltraMax Air 360 car seat has 360 Protect™ for 6 layers of proven safety. These seats go through rigorous safety testing and are crash tested at every angle. These angles include rollover, front impact, rear impact and side impact testing.  Knowing that my precious cargo is protected from every angle definitely puts my mind at ease!

Safety Features
Safety 1st UltraMax Air 360 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seat


The only 4-in-1 convertible car seat that features 360 Protect™ for 6 layers of proven safety:

  • Air Protect® for superior side impact protection 
  • G-Cell™ HX energy absorbing foam, the same technology used in race cars
  • Steel reinforced frame for additional stability
  • Motion control headrest contains movement
  • Deep seat structure for shielding the child 
  • Soft foam throughout the seat for additional safety and comfort
  • Car seats with Safety 1st’s Air Protect Technology are safer*. 
  • Air Protect technology is proven to help keep children safer in the event of a side impact crash.
*Based on testing Safety 1st seats with and without Air Protect.





While the cost might seem a bit daunting at first, the longevity of this seat is well worth the investment.  We are very happy with the design, safety, and features of the UltraMax 360!


Where to Buy:

Safety 1st UltraMax Air 360 can be found at babiesrus.com for $259.99.

When Calls the Heart: Heart of a Hero @wcth_tv #Hearties #Sponsored

Thank you to Edify Media for giving me a review copy of When Calls the Heart: Heart of a Hero. All opinions are my own. 

We're eagerly waiting for When Calls the Heart season 4 to arrive on the Hallmark Channel.  In the meantime, you can watch season 3 all over again on DVD. The third DVD for season 3, When Calls The Heart:  Heart of a Hero, is now available.

When Calls the Heart: Heart of a Hero DVD


In case you need to catch up, here are the DVD's in order:

When Calls The Heart: It Begins With Heart
When Calls The Heart:  Troubled Hearts 
When Calls The Heart: Heart of a Hero




Synopsis: 

New arrivals bring excitement, love and danger to Hope Valley. Pastor Frank has been reinstated following the revelation of his criminal past, but the arrival of his old cohorts, the Garrison Gang, are making life - and his relationship with Abigail-very tense. Bill Avery has his own debt to settle with Jake Garrison, and Jack intends to stay Bill's hand from killing the man. Meanwhile, Lee's foot injury brings a pretty nurse, Faith Carter from Hamilton... and soon after, her possessive fiancé. And Jack rises to the defense of new settlers on Gowen's land when Gowen abruptly raises their rent.





Things are pretty tense in Heart of a Hero for many people in Hope Valley.  The Garrison Gang brings an element of danger for both Frank and Jesse.  Both have to choose to do the right thing, whether it puts them in more danger or not.  Bill Avery decides to settle the score with Jake Garrison, but Jack intervenes.

The tension eases a bit as conflicts get resolved.  I can't tell you what happens, but you'll find that it comes to a satisfactory ending.

Each episode keeps you wondering what will happen next in this small town!

When Calls the Heart: Forever In My Heart @wcth_tv #sponsored #Hearties

Thank you to Edify Media for giving me a review copy of When Calls the Heart: Forever In My Heart. All opinions are my own. 

Missing your favorite Hallmark show When Calls the Heart?  The fourth DVD for season 3, When Calls The Heart:  Forever in My Heart, is now available to binge watch!
 
When Calls the Heart: Forever In my Heart DVD

(Haven't watched the first two seasons? You can check out episodes from Season 1 and Season 2)

In case you need to catch up on Season 3, here are the DVD's in order:

When Calls The Heart: It Begins With Heart
When Calls The Heart:  Troubled Hearts 
When Calls The Heart: The Heart of a Hero
When Calls The Heart: Forever in My Heart


Synopsis: 


When Cody’s sister, Becky, returns to Hope Valley, she’s in a wheelchair due to her illness. Suspecting that Becky isn’t walking because she’s receiving a lot of attention, Elizabeth encourages her to try harder, both in her efforts to stand and in honing her talent for drawing. All are surprised to meet Carolyn Connors, Cody and Becky’s long-lost, wealthy aunt who wishes to raise them on her own… away from Hope Valley. Meanwhile, Rebecca’s efforts to land a role in a film may catapult her to stardom… and out of the arms of Lee.





One of the things I like about this show is that are all kinds of little twists and turns in each of the characters' lives.  Each episode reveals a little bit more about the people in Hope Valley; sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worst.

Just when you think things are settling down for Abigail and the two kids she wants to adopt, along comes an aunt to throw a wrench in the plans.  Abigail has really become attached to the kids and your heart really goes out to her during this stressful time.

And as far as couples getting together and getting married, well the writers want to keep you on your toes and make you wonder if and when that'll happen.  Jack & Elizabeth are still on the back burner, though Jack is looking at land to purchase.   Rosemary & Lee look like they are heading down the aisle, but a potential movie role could change things.

Melodramatic Rosemary is one of those characters you don't like at first, but she is starting to grow on me.  She makes me laugh at her manipulative ways and theatrics!  Lee sure has his hands full with her, but for some reason they work as a couple.

I'm enjoying re-watching season 3 and can't wait for season 4!
