Cybex Aton Q Car Seat and Carrier *review*

Ok it's a well known fact that I don't drive, but having a suitable, comfortable car seat is a must for when you're travelling with baby in anyone's car.

Tempting as it may be to pick up a second hand one, you've no idea as to whether it's been involved in an accident at any time in the past, leaving the safety of your most precious 'cargo' being exposed as questionable to say the least.

That's why I agreed to trial and review the Cybex Aton Q when it was offered to us for a short time.


SPECIFICATIONS:

* 8 position adjustable head-rest height with auto seat recline and integrated harness. This maximises comfort and also reduces the need to fiddle with the harness as baby gets bigger - it automatically adjusts as required according to the height you choose!

* Large adjustable sun hood (UVP50+) to protect baby in any weather. It's so thin it's hidden inside the slick visor until you need to pull it forward.

* Extendable safety "wings" i.e. telescopic Linear Side-Impact Protection (L.S.P. System) This will absorb the initial impact in the event of a collision, further protecting baby.
* Removable, popper fastening, chest protector pads. These provide a comfortable and snug support. They also prevent the straps becoming twisted and tangled.

A curved base, I used this as a rocker for Finley. (Quite often actually!)
Not used to car seats, Fin cries when he's placed in one. But not with this! The head rest kind of moulds to his shape, snuggling him in tight, the chest pads also add to the snug and comfort he clearly enjoys! The snuggly fit instantly calms him down and he sleeps within minutes.

Feeling very swish that I was able to run our Finley around in the same car seat that Simon Cowell's little Eric was taken home from hospital in, I called upon my sister in law to take him for a little drive. As expected, it made for a sturdy ride and was lightweight enough to go in and out the car very easily with no struggles at all.

The Cybex Aton Q has provided comfort and safety in style for my baby. It will grow with him thanks to the head rest height adjustability and is ergonomically friendly for lifting. Sometimes car seats are poorly designed in that when you pick the handle up to carry it, the seat just bangs against your leg, making you walk like a scarecrow to prevent bruises and waking up baby! You dont find that happens with this seat.

The colour pictured is Black River Aton Q and currently retails at £185. This seat is suitable from birth to approx. 18 months (0-13kg) and is available from reputable baby stores such as Mamas & Papas and Mothercare. 

We absolutely loved it!!

  4. I absolutely agree that a car seat should be brand new. Secondhand okay if it is from someone you trust, so know it hasn't been in a crash. And the sunhood sounds a nice extra #TriedTested
