Keeping Baby Safe with the diono radian rXT Car Seat - Review

I received product for review from diono.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

I love having my little nieces over to visit or take them somewhere, but transporting them used to be a task.  I'd have to take the car seat out of the parent's car and put it in mine.  Since receiving the diono radian rXT car seat, I've been able to save time and I feel safe knowing that I have a top-quality car seat.
diono, a leading manufacturer of child safety seats, also understands that safety is paramount for little ones.  Most parents choose safety as the #1 factor in choosing a seat, and diono's radian rXT car seat is designed with safety and security as top priorities.  I personally know a few parents that swear by diono as their car seat provider, and I can now see why.

This particular car seat is available in six colors, and I received it in Black Scarlet.  The overall design is sharp and streamlined.  

I highly recommend reading the instruction manual before assembly.  Most of the car seat is already put together, but there's some important instructions that you should abide by for proper installation and safety reasons.  It also helps you determine the proper positioning for your child.

The diono radian rXT car seat can be used in both rear and forward-facing positions.  It can also be folded and unfolded.  It folds flat for travel.  Shoulder straps can be purchased separately to carry the car seat on your back if you want to transport it somewhere by foot.  

This car seat model has so many great features.  Some are for safety and a couple are for convenience.  A few of the safety features include a steel alloy frame and aluminum reinforced sides, energy absorbing EPS foam and side impact protection, infant body support cushions and memory foam for added comfort, and a Safe Stop® energy-absorbing harness.  Safe Stop is a device designed to absorb energy and reduce impact to a forward-facing child.  One of the convenient accessories is a cup holder.  The diono radian rXT can be used from infancy stage to booster mode, which is typically that of a child up to 120 pounds.

I have noticed that this car seat is heavier than the average car seat on the market.  This is because it includes so many safety features, and is built with a steel frame.  And that's something I can deal with.  After getting the hang of how to install and use this car seat, I like it a lot.  And my nieces who've rode in it seem very comfortable and enjoy the ride.

Thank you for the review. I do not need a car seat at this time but will keep it in mind. I like the image that says the seat will fold up for convenience.
