Safety 1st UltraMax Air 360 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seat Review & Giveaway

6 Crafty School Lunches for Kids
September 21, 2016
September is Baby Safety Month with MAM & ergoPouch
September 27, 2016


The month of September is Baby Safety Awareness Month and this week (September 18th through 24th) we are focusing in on Child Passenger Safety Week. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, of those children ages 8 and under who died in vehicle crashes in 2014, 26 percent were not restrained by an age-appropriate device such as an infant seat, booster seat or seat belt.

So this month we have partnered with Safety 1st to provide you with an informative review on their UltraMax™ Air 360 4-in-1 convertible car seat. We are also giving away a car seat to one lucky reader so you can find out how to win after the post!


As a mom of two kids and with one on the way, car seat safety has always been important to me. My children are on the small side, so due to weight and height requirements it has always taken them longer to convert to the next car seat or booster. In the past we have seen ourselves having to move from a bucket car seat, to a convertible, to a high-back booster seat with a five-point harness, to removing the five point harness, to then a booster seat without a back once the children have reached the appropriate age. Let’s be honest, this A LOT of car seats and A LOT of money! I was so excited when I learned about Safety 1st’s  UltraMax™ Air 360 4-in-1 convertible car seat because not only has it been crash tested from every angle, but it can be used with a rear-facing child as small as 4 pounds all the way to a belt positioning booster for a child weighing 40 to 120 pounds and 57 inches tall.

Can we say GAME CHANGER?


Safety is really what it’s all about so here are some of the facts:

 The UltraMax Air 360 is the only 4-in-1 car seat that features 360 Protect™ which provides 6 layers of proven safety. So let me break down exactly what 6 layers of protection  it includes:

  • The Air Protect® cushioning system provides immediate crash protection with the most advanced side impact energy management system available.
  • GCell HX™ further displaces crash energy around the child’s torso.
  • The steel reinforced frame adds stability to the seat.
  • A deep seat structure helps shield your child, keeping your little one cozy and contained.
  • Soft foam, used throughout the seat makes a comfortable first contact in every touchable location.
  • The motion control headrest contains movement and easily adjusts to 10 different heights.



This carseat has been through extensive crash testing to not only surpass U.S. Regulations, but it is one of very few car seats to pass new European standards for Rollover (ECE R44 Supplement 7). Did you know Europe has higher standards? In the U.S. it has been crash tested on side impact, rear impact and rollover testing so moms, it’s definitely a car seat that we know our baby, toddler, and child will always be safe in!

Now here is how the transition will work as your child grows:

First, at the ripe weight of 4 pounds through 22 pounds you can safely place your baby in this carseat in the rear-facing position. It as has a 3-position recline option to make it a great fit in your car.


If your toddler requires extended rear-facing placement then this seat will accommodate them from 15 to 50 pounds.


Once your child is able to turn around to forward-facing, this seat will accommodate them from 22-65 pounds.  It offers a QuickFit™ system for easy 10 position adjustment of both harness and headrest with one hand in one step as your child grows.


And finally, your child can utilize this seat as a  belt-positioning booster (using your car’s seatbelt) from 40 to 120 pounds and 57″ in height.


Now I know you are probably thinking that this car seat will not uphold the mess of a child for so many years, but Safety 1st has you covered by not only providing a ClickClean™ machine washable and dryer safe seat pad that lifts away easily from the seat frame, but also supplying 2 removable and dishwasher-safe cup holders.


Is that a mom win or is that a mom win??

This car seat is exclusive to Babies”R”Us and retails for only $259.99

In my opinion this a great car seat to add to your baby registry as it will be useful in the early stages and long after. Between the added safety and the price, you really can’t beat all that is has to offer!

And now we are so excited to be giving away an UltraMax™ Air 360 4-in-1 convertible car seat to ONE lucky mommy reader!!

To enter to win simply do some or all of the entires below. The more you do the more chances you have to win. This giveaway is open to U.S. Residents only. The giveaway will end on September 29, 2016 at 12:00am.

    Wow this is a great opportunity. Would love to win ! I have a 5 year old and a new baby on the way. Which means our 5 year old would either need a new car seat so she can share this one with her sister, or we would need to buy a new one for the baby… and being in the situation that we r in, I’m freaking out cuz we can’t afford one. And baby is due in 3 months. When I stumble upon this give away I got a ray of hope! Thank u for the chance to win! And even if I don’t win, congratulations to a lucky person who did 🙂 Good luck everyone and God bless ! 🙂

  10. Tiffany Coombs says:

    I would love to win this car seat! My little man is really long, he was off the charts for height at his six months appointment and we need a seat that will allow him to be rear facing until it is safe for him to be forward facing. I love how transitional this seat is.

  11. Ramzy Kilic says:

    This seat seems to be the leading seat for technology, comfort and most importantly, safety. What mom or dad wouldn’t want this seat for their little loved one. As a father of my first child, my 18 month old boy, I can’t think of a better chair out there at this time. We would really love to win this seat and I can tell you that we have many family and friends with little ones that can wait to see this seat up close and get a feel for its safety and comfort. I think that this will be the perfect seat we can finally recommend to family and friends, without any doubt or hesitation.

  16. Jenn F says:

    I would love to win this car seat for my children. As a mom of four children having a car seat that can be used from birth until the booster stage would be fantastic. Currently we transfer the car seats multiple times daily between my car and my husbands. My oldest child is no longer in a car seat, however my four year old is in a booster and my two year old uses the four years old, foward facing only car seat. We purchased a convertiable are seat for our newest baby, but since we are transferring car seats daily it was to much moving two large car seats back and forth so currently my six month old is in a infant carrier base combo. I would love to be able to have permenet car seats in each of our cars. To add to the convenience factor this car seat would provide, the science and safety behind this is amazing. I loved your review of the product and really feel good about the over quality and integrity of it. As moms, we worry most about the safety of our children. Having this car seat would also offer some reprieve from my worry over my child’s safety while traveling in the car. This opportunity is so awesome and I know who ever wins this will be in love with this product!!

  17. Renee V. says:

    I would Love to win tHis for my new little guy 🙂

  19. Stephanie says:

    I would love this seat. My little one just outgrew his pumpkin seat and we really need this. It looks amazing!!

  20. MaryAnn says:

    I want to win this car seat for my daughter. I went from being a stay at home mom to a working mom so now we are needing a second car seat so my husband and I can share the responsibilities of taking our daughter to day care.

  21. Jenn F says:

    This is an awesome give away and would be very useful to my husband and I as we are the parents to four kids 3 in car seats still. This is an awesome car seat and I loved your review. I have looked into this car seat a few different times, but the price tag wasn’t in our budget. Thanks so much for offering such an amazing opportunity to the Mommy community.

    I look forward extended weight limits for rear facing and for the five point harness while forward facing. I also love the no re-thread systems. Safety is by far the most important feature when looking for a car seat!
