If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that I have several Britax car seats and have always been a fan. However my baby car seat had been used lots and the handle was flexing more than it probably should have, which was concerning me as I wasn’t sure if this would have affected it’s performance if god forbid we’d had an accident. So when the lovely people at Stokke contacted me and offered to send me the Stokke Izi Go by BeSafe car seat to help keep my baby girl (who is in a hip harness for DDH) comfortable and safe I jumped at the chance because Stokke and BeSafe are both such well known and reputable brands.
I opted for the gorgeous purple colour and have to say am thrilled with my choice as it looks fantastic!
and even comes with additional cushions for newborns, which I think is a lovely addition as it gives them extra comfort when they are really small! My little girl can easily fall asleep in this car seat and because it’s compatible with all Stokke strollers I can simply lift her out of the car and onto the Xplory chassis without waking her and without the need for any additional adapters.
Being disabled I need things to be easy to carry and as lightweight as possible. The Stokke® Izi Go™ BeSafe® car seat is lightweight and the ergonomic carry handle means it’s really easy to lift and carry too.
The hood on the car seat has a really large integrated sun canopy that both my husband and I think looks really cool and rather armadillo like! lol! It certainly gives a lot more cover and protection than my Britax one did and it looks sturdier too.
The height of the shoulder straps can be adjusted simply by pushing up (or pulling down) a slider located at the back of the car seat and one really, really nifty addition is the magnetic shoulder pads! They stick to the sides of the car seat to enable you to lift your child out / put your child in easily without losing the straps and having to feel around underneath for them. I am liking this feature a lot!
The Stokke Izi Go BeSafe car seat can be secured in your car using a seatbelt or by using an Isofix base. I strapped the car seat in for the first week I had it and it was simple enough to do. However, having my disability, I just love the ease of Isofix and like the additional safety of them too so we bought an Isofix base to accompany the seat. I have to say even the Isofix base is so simple to use! One simple, easy manoeuvre and the car seat really easily lifts out and slots back onto the base. Much easier than my previous car seat again.
I have to say I think I’ve fallen in love with the Stokke Izi Go BeSafe car seat I really can’t find any fault with it and I think my baby girl agrees!
Have you got an Stokke Izi Go BeSafe car seat? If so I’d love to hear your thoughts.
