My Infant Car Seat & Why I Chose It



It was a no-brainier when choosing the infant car seat: I went with the Uppa Baby MESA to go with our VISTA stroller as a travel-system. Perfect to transfer baby boy from the car to the stroller without waking him up, and use as a single or double stroller (see full review on this single stroller that turns into a double stroller here). But of course, safety comes first. Three main reasons why I love this car seat. 1. The MESA is the only infant car seat with a unique technology utilizing a tightness indicator and self-retracting LATCH connectors for fast, accurate and easy installation. An indicator window changes from red to green for visual confirmation when the base has been installed correctly. Maximizing ease to minimize error, which allows us parents to move forward with confidence. 2. It's adjustable headrest is reinforced with EPP foam, providing added protection for your child: this integrated design keeps an infant’s head stationary during a side impact collision. Extremity important too. 3. As for the fabric, I went with the HENRY because it is a CHEMICAL FREE FIRE RESISTANT fabric, using Merino Wool (another choice that uses this fabric to pass federal safety standards without the toxic flame retardant chemicals is the JORDAN). Plus, this fabric is soft, breathable, and has a moisture-wicking material that keeps baby cool and comfortable, perfect for both warm and cold weather.
