5 Reasons We Love the Doona Infant Car Seat Stroller with LATCH Base
Maneuvering through the city with a baby in tow often isn’t convenient or easy. Many infant car seats are bulky and difficult to manage before your little one is even latched in. Most require assembly and disassembly to get in and out of vehicles.
That’s where the Doona Infant Car Seat Stroller with LATCH Base comes in and changes the game.
This amazing piece of equipment is the world’s first car seat that converts into a stroller. Doona has created a safe, useful solution that lets busy parents transition from car to stroller in seconds. No more dragging around a bulky car seat! Here’s a look at five reasons we love the Doona Infant Car Seat Stroller with LATCH Base.
1. Easy to use with or without the base
In one simple motion, you can transform your Doona Stroller into a car seat in seconds. Though it comes with a base, one of the advantages of this product is that you can safely install it in a vehicle without one. When placed inside a car, the Doona Infant Car Seat should only be installed rear-facing (as should all car seats for children under age 2, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The base utilizes a LATCH system, but you can also install the seat with just a seatbelt.
2. Transitions with ease
The Doona infant car seat and stroller combination has three modes: car seat, pull-along (handlebar directly above the car seat canopy, allowing you to pull the stroller alongside you), and on-the-go (stroller mode). Switching between the modes is straightforward and uncomplicated. Simply press the buttons on both sides of the handlebar to rotate it into different positions and push the red safety lock button located at the rear of the car seat to release the wheels. We love the pull-along mode for handling packed or crowded spaces. In stroller mode, the Doona easily glides along paved streets.
3. Made with baby-safe materials
All materials used in Doona products are free of hazardous chemicals and are carefully tested and approved under the strictest European standards and the REACH regulation, including SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern). The textiles are tested for their durability and quality to assure the safety and continued use of the products. In addition, they are all breathable, removable, and washable textiles.
4. Side impact protection
The unique double-wall structure of Doona allows the wheels to simply fold into the body and offers a significant safety benefit. The two layers of durable, impact-absorbing plastic, along with additional layers of EPS, foam, and textiles provide enhanced side-impact protection.
5. Anti-rebound protection
Unlike typical car seats, Doona’s unique structure enables positioning the handle against the back of the car seat, thus providing your baby with exceptional anti-rebound protection. What does that mean? It means that if you’re in a collision, the anti-rebound handle absorbs the impact and prevents the Doona from rotating quickly towards the back of the seat. This feature dramatically reduces rebound injuries.
In short, the Doona Infant Car Seat Stroller with LATCH Base is in a class all by itself. It’s a must-have for getting around crowded city streets with ease, allowing a smooth, easy transition between walking and riding in vehicles. Though it does have a higher price point, if you were to buy an infant car seat and a stroller separately, you would most likely spend the same amount of money or more. If the Doona fits your family’s needs, it’s exceptionally practical and will make family excursions so much more manageable.
