I received a sample from Combi for the sole purpose of this review
"Pink & Blue: Babies Are Due" is a wonderful event that Michelle and I have come up with. It starts December 16th and is a giveaway hop for baby items up to about 6 months of age. We have a wonderful Grand Prize for this giveaway and that is from Combi. They are giving one lucky winner the chance to win a Shuttle Infant Car Seat in the Color of choice!
We received the Shuttle in the gorgeous Teal color!
First let me start off by saying that this seat is a bit more green than my pictures indicate. It's a gorgeous teal color.
The Combi Shuttle has a wonderful 5 point harness that has nice shoulder pads for comfort on an infant.
Adjusting the harness is a bit different, but is easy.
You twist the red lock back there and then lift it up or push it down to adjust the harness strap height to a comfortable level for your child (at or below their shoulders).
And this is also with the head rest all the way up.
This is easy to achieve by adjusting the base.
With it in this position it's best for the 22 pound infant or under.
In the car with the latch connected and nice and tight. I need to have the base leveler all the way up in order to get it at that 22 pound mark.
The Combi Shuttle offers a layer of Energy Absorbing foam which distributes crash forces away from infants head, neck and spine.
And in case you were wondering what the bar is? That's an Anti Rebound Bar. In the case of an accident, if the seat tips toward the back of the vehicle, that bar hits the seat of your car and prevents the car seat from tipping further. Also diminishing crash forces.
The cover is easy to remove and the entire thing is machine washable. NEVER WASH CAR SEAT STRAPS IN A WASHING MACHINE OR BY HAND. WIPE CLEAN WITH DAMP CLOTH.
This car seat is good up to 35 pounds and 33". My son is 22 months and although fits this criteria, he just looks too big in the seat to me. So know that you will get at least a year out of this seat (for most children anyway). It's a very long lasting seat.
It comes in 6 different colors and they are all just gorgeous!
Price: The Combi Shuttle is right around $170, but to get a year (or more) out of an infant seat makes it worth it.
