Traveling is something our family loves to do. We love to take mini-vacations throughout the year or just jump in the car and go for a ride that leads us on an unexpected adventure. We spend quite a bit of time on the road and just as much time in our adventure spots. So, when we are on the road it is important to me that the boys are comfortable and safe.
I had the opportunity to road test the Evenflo Symphony DLX Platinum Car seat on our road trip just a few weeks ago. We decided to take a spring break trip to one of our favorite destinations, Pigeon Forge. The boys love staying in the cabin and Dollywood is always a fun stop. This time we got even more adventurous and got a 4 seater RZR rental and explored the Smoky Mountain National Parks. It was amazing and a memory we will always remember!
Travel time for us is about 2 hours which results in about 2 naps in the car seat there and back as well as a few while we are at our destination. There are also 2 big issues with our boys when they are napping in a car seat. First of all, the head falling forward always bothers me. I want them to be comfortable and safe and that is neither! The second thing is the sweat factor. No matter how much air is kicking in the back, the boys wake up sweaty from the car seat.
The new Evenflo Symphony DLX Platinum Carseat helped us out with both of my concern areas. His head did flop forward on occasion, but for the most part it stayed in place and was minimal. But, the part that was wonderful to witness was that there was no excessive sweating! Our spring break saw some of the highest temperatures we have ever seen for this time of year. It really felt more like summer. The car seat sat in the bright, hot parking lot of an amusement park for hours before we got back in. Davis got in and seemed comfortable pretty much immediately.
When NASA has something to do with a carseat then you know a lot of research went into it! The Outlast® Technology is the temperature-regulating fabric that was designed by them that is used in this carseat. So many times, we as mothers are distracted drivers just because our kids are uncomfortable in the back seat. According to a study conducted by American Baby and Safe Kids Worldwide, new moms are 300% more likely to get into an accident than other drivers, in part due to tending to an upset baby. Outlast® Technology helps cut down on that just by keeping kids cozy! Buckle Protects are also used on this carseat ensuring that your precious cargo will not be burned by hot buckles and you won’t have to dig around under your child to find the lost buckles. The Evenflo Symphony DLX Platinum Carseat will accommodate children weighing 5-110 pounds making it extremely versatile.
Overall, we were extremely satisfied with the seat and are ready for many more comfortable and safe adventures down the road!
