Mamahood Approved: Car Seats

September 30, 2015 in Product Reviews

When you first become a parent, how in the world are you supposed to know what to pack your hospital bag with, what car seat to get, bottles to use, or stroller to have. Ha! I remember pretending to “jog” with a stroller in the store at 35 weeks pregnant and had zero idea what to even get. I’m pretty sure I based my decision off of the color?? …. I didn’t even know what a “BOB” or “City Select” even was! (First time moms-those are like the Ferrari’s of strollers.)

So I will be doing “Mamahood Approved” posts where I will list top favorites, must haves, and brands that are brought to you by all the mamas in our community which means they are all mom tested and recommended!

Here are the top 5 recommended convertible car seats:

(Click on pics for more details on each seat)


1. Graco My Ride 65

2. Britax

3. Chicco Nextfit

4. Evenflo Platinum Symphony
5. Maxi Cosa Pria 70


My personal review: I have owned both the Graco My Ride, and the Evenflo and have to say my vote is for the Evenflo. It was so much easier to install and I felt like I didn’t have any trouble with it feeling wobbly in our car as opposed to the Graco. Every car is different, but if you happen to by chance own a Santa Fe go with the Evenflo over the Graco.

Stay tuned for more recommendations coming soon! If you have any insight or comments please leave them below!

    I’m due in just under three weeks and love this idea for a series of posts! Obviously a little biased with my time-line but would love to see one soon about what to pack in a hospital bag! Thanks for doing this 🙂

    I have the Graco MyRide for both of my toddlers (yikes, that sounds scary). The only thing I don’t love about them is how big they are, but I have a van so it’s really not a big deal! They’ve been great to us so far, and I love that they have cupholders!
