Be Safe, Be Smart & Be Responsible

Grab your coffee and sit back, because I am going to tell you exactly why you need to be purchasing the BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size car seat for your child.

"I am extremely passionate about my role in raising awareness of the importance of car seats. It’s a no-brainer, yet some people still choose to travel without them."

Since the day Gia was born, we constantly battled to keep Gia happy in a car seat. We often had no choice but to let her cry it out because we did not know what the problem was. Some days were better than others, but if I look back, I can't remember many pleasant car rides without her being unhappy.

The day the BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size car seat arrived, we were extremely excited. I never thought I’d be infatuated with a baby car seat, but man alive, it is seriously a thing of beauty. It offers space, the padding is soft to the touch, making it extremely comfortable and the straps never get tangled or sat on because of the magnets that keep the internal harness out of the way. I could go on and on, but I will get to the features shortly, right now, I want to tell you about Gia’s first BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size car ride.

I assumed the installation was going to be a tricky affair, but I was completely wrong. I think it took all of 10 minutes to get the seat correctly installed. We did this while Gia was having her Saturday nap. It was so easy that we double checked we had done it correctly by watching an installation video. Yip, we installed it perfectly, on the first attempt.

When Gia woke from her nap, we took her to the car to see her new car seat. Well, excited is an understatement, she wanted to get in immediately, and without help. She kept saying “No, my turn” and to her, this means that she wants to do it herself and does not need our help. She says this quite often, like when she wants to take over from Milly and start chopping veggies, or when she wants to help me work on the laptop, most of the time it’s said at tasks she cannot do by herself yet, but just so badly wants to try. She is determined I’ll give her that! Once she had climbed into the car seat (on her own) we strapped her in safely and asked her where she would like to go. “Shopping” she replied. She is not even two years old yet, and she is asking to go shopping. Boy oh boy, I really need to start saving, it seems we have a big spender here. Needless to say, we didn't take her shopping, but the strangest thing happened almost immediately as we left home.

Milly and I were chatting, when we suddenly realized that there was no moaning, no crying, no nothing! Could she have fallen asleep again? Even though she had just woken up! No, she was wide awake looking out of the window as we drove through the neighborhood. These days, a drive in the car has become the best time for Milly and I to have a full-blown, lengthy conversation about love, life and everything else. Thank you BeSafe, not only is Gia safe and extremely happy in her car seat, but you have also given us, as parents a much more pleasant outlook on what was once a very stressful situation.

What is the difference?

Let’s start off with the fact that the BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size is a test winner in the group 1-4 years in the 2016 ADAC / Stiftung Warentest extensive test of child car seats. On the parameter safety, it received a remarkable 1.1 score, the best score ever among the 66 seats tested in this group. This fact alone is extremely impressive and should leave you questioning why you would want to even consider buying any other car seat! The safely that BeSafe offers does not end there, the new innovative solution SIP + (Side Impact Protection +) is a new unique side-impact protection that ensures that the child receives highest possible protection in the event of a side impact. It’s features like this that really put your mind at ease knowing that no matter what may happen, your child is sitting in, what I like to call, the safest car seat in the world!

Another feature that I love is the fact that the adjustable ISOfix arms allow you as a parent to decide how much space the car seat needs in the car. This feature also ensures that the baby’s leg room may become larger as the child grows. In this way, the child can travel rearward facing, at least until the age of four.

Other BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size features that make this car seat stand out from the rest:

  • Easily mounted with ISOfix and clear indicators show when the car seat is correctly assembled which reduces the risk of incorrect use.

  • The headrest can be easily adjusted in height with one hand, ensuring that the car seat grows with the child.

  • Patented frontbrace that mechanically locks the seat in the car and provides an extremely strong mounting.

  • Adjustable ISOfix arms that generates more legroom for the child and allows the car seat to take up less space in the car.

  • The adjustable sleeping position can be easily adjusted during the ride to give the child extra comfort.

  • Ventilation in the back of the seat for extra comfort

The BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size is a game changer. It is the only car seat I would recommend to anyone who may ask, and when they do, I get excited to tell them just why I love and believe in this car seat so much.
