Help keep your growing child safe in this innovative convertible car seat. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends your child ride rear-facing as long as possible, so My Ride 65 stays rear-facing up to 40 lbs. - longer than most other car seats in the US. Then, it secures your forward-facing child in a 5-point harness until he is 65 lbs. (the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends your child stay harnessed as long as possible). Other features like EPS, energy absorbing foam, side-impact testing* and removable infant insert help keep your child snug and secure on all his journeys. (*Side-impact tested for occupant retention by the harness system.). The Car Seat Seat Mat protects from diaper blow outs and potty-training accidents. Made with soft, absorbent layers next to baby's body and a waterproof vinyl outer layer to keep car seats and strollers dry and clean. A soft, upright harness shield protects the crotch harness. The safe, contoured design fits easily and discreetly inside the child's seat and works with all harness systems. It's the little moments that make traveling together better. With the Backseat Mirror, connecting in the car is as easy as a glance in the rear-view mirror. The shatter-resistant Clear-Sight surface gives you and your baby a distortion-free view of each other and the Soft-Touch frame looks great in any car interior. Amid life's hustle and bustle it is always a plus when you can add a little fun and peace of mind to your journey.
