Time is going so fast and it's exciting to watch my baby grow up. Aakarsh, my 17 months old bundle of joy always keeps me on my toes. He is naughty, talkative and enthusiastic. He looks totally like his dad but then compensates it with traits similar to mine. So yeah, he knows how to keep both mommy and daddy happy! He enjoys traveling, exploring outdoors and just running around in new places. It cheers him up and so we make it a point to take him to out often. Now that he has reached the point where we had to upgrade his car seat, Diono brand impressed us with its wonderful range of car seats. Diono is quite a popular brand which went on to win several prestigious awards and honors. Given its awesome features, Diono Radian rXT looked like a perfect upgrade option for Aakarsh's car seat. Now that we are using the car seat for quite some time, let me share with you what its got to offer.

Diono Radian rXT All-in-One Convertible Car Seat Review

The first thing which attracted us about Diono Radian rXT is that it looks stylish and good on the outside. But that's not all! Priced at $251.99, Radian rXT has excellent child security features which are our top priority. Lovingly engineered with a full steel frame, the Diono Radian rXT all-in-one car seat provides unmatched safety for your child from birth to booster - and every marvelous moment in between. If you have 3 children and mid-size car, Radian car seat is the solution as it fits in most mid-size vehicles. Great, ain't it?

There are 7 colors available for Radian rXT and we went for Black Mist as it blends well with our car. The frame of the car seat is full steel and it has aluminum reinforced sides for safety with premium plus interlock knit fabric, energy absorbing EPS foam, side-impact protection and a reinforced adjustable head support which keeps Aakarsh safe and comfortable. When we got the car seat it was all packed well with easy instructions for assembly. If you are confused or got stuck with the assembly, there is no need to worry! Diono site has a good number of installation videos such as installing a forward-facing Diono car seat using lap belt, installing a rear-facing Diono convertible car seat on an airplane, folding and unfolding Diono car seat etc. They have got everything covered for us so that parents face no difficulty in getting the car seat ready for the little munchkins.

Once the car seat was ready, Aakarsh couldn't wait to sit on it and this was even before we actually fixed it in the car. That's a winner for us as we were looking for a smooth transition from his previous car seat and Diono made it easy for us. At first, we used Radian rXT as a rear-facing seat and it was fantastic with plush head and body support cushions. The detachable base included with the car seat is of great help. Diono Radian rXT would be a great pick for newborns and infants as its extended rear facing seats 5-45 lbs children comfortably. And if you have a toddler like mine, there is a lot of room to grow when accommodating forward-facing children up to 80 lbs in a 5-point harness. It even converts to booster mode for kids 50-120 lbs. So you are all covered for a long time to come!

The are certain features which paved the way for a pleasant forward-facing experience for Aakarsh. Expandable sides and long seat bottom allow proper leg support, low sitting profile makes it easy for him to board the car seat and the angled cup holder helps me put a sippy cup within his easy reach are a few highlights to name. Safetywise, I love the five-point harness with 5 shoulder positions and three buckle positions. Radian's low center of gravity also helps reduce seat rotation in the event of an impact. When it comes to traveling, Diono Radian rXT folds flat and you can wear it as a backpack with the carry straps which are sold separately for hands-free transport.
