Summer Prodigy® Infant Car Seat ~ Review + Giveaway










































Hi Rambles of a SAHM, it's Laura from Food Snob St. Louis. You might remember me from Tasty Tuesdays. I'm excited to be here today to talk to you about car seats!

One of the most stressful things I remember about preparing for our first baby was getting the car seat installed. It's a vital part of being ready to bring home your bundle of joy, yet it was one of the most confusing things I've had to do. Let's just say it ended with lots a tears and a trip to get some ice cream to make me feel better about my potential parenting abilities.

We are now expecting our second child, and the car seat installation has been looming over my head yet again. With a little less than 2 months to go, I knew it just needed to get done. Thankfully, I had the opportunity to review the Summer Prodigy Infant Car Seat, which boasts being one of the easiest and quickest seats to install with the latches in your car. I was beyond excited to try this out! As you can see from the photo, there is a display screen on the base, easy tightening and loosening crank, as well as the 3-step instructions printed right there for easy reference.

Seemed easy enough, so I went out to the car to see how quickly I could actually put it in. The first step was clipping in to the latches.

Once the latches are clicked, the display screen tells you if it is level.

 And then tighten with the crank until you get the green smiley face.

This literally took 5 minutes. 5 MINUTES! Keep in mind I am 8 months pregnant as well. It was seriously SO easy and hassle free. Plus, with the display screen, you don't have to worry about or question if it is installed correctly. You might notice there is also a "test" button. This lets you test the car seat base periodically to make sure no adjustments are needed.

The infant carrier seat itself is also top-of-the-line.

 Our new little girl will be supported and safe with these plush infant inserts and the 5-point safety harness.

The straps for the seat are very easy to adjust as well, and overall, this car seat is incredibly user-friendly. I should also mention that the carrier and base were not heavy, and I believe I'll be able to easily lift the baby in and out of the car. The bottom line is this car seat made my life easier and helped me worry less for multiple reasons: 1. I know it meets all the safety standards. 2. It took 5 minutes to install. 3. #2 means I can easily move this seat from one car to another or travel with it. 4. With the display screen there is no guessing if the base is installed correctly. Thank you Summer for giving me the opportunity to try out this car seat. I can't wait to use it with our new baby in a few short weeks!
