Evenflo: Car seat Safety Awareness Month - ProComfort Symphony DXL All In One Car Seat

*Disclaimer - I received the product in this post from Evenflo Baby in order to facilitate this review for my readers.

Have you been looking for a car seat that offers a nice variety of pros to it and that is a 3 in 1? Well, this is the car seat for you then! Introducing the Evenflo Symphony DXL All In One car seat. I wish I would have known all about these car seats when my kids were babies, so we could've saved money in the long run. 

Some important and helpful safety infortmation before I get into my review:

This is some really important and helpful information to parents of children of all ages, that was provided to me to include in my post for Evenflo's Car Seat Safety Awareness Month Review. "86% of parents move children into booster seats too soon, according to a recent Safe Kids Worldwide report released yesterday. Even more risky, is one in five parents of young children admits to “bending the rules” when carpooling, letting children ride without car seats, booster seats and sometimes even seatbelts. These statistics and more were published Tuesday in USA TodayNBC News and other credible news outlets.
Currently in the middle of Child Passenger Safety week (September 14-20), the study is very timely and reminds us of the importance of safety on the road. Evenflo Symphony All-In-One car seats grow with children, accommodating children from 5 - 100lbs and is adjustable to rear facing, forward facing harnessed and forward facing booster without harness modes.  The Symphony Seats keep car travel safe throughout childhood and may be the only car seat your child will ever need.

True safety starts even before you hit the road, especially since over 70% of car seats are incorrectly installed (NHTSA, 2006). Luckily, last month Evenflo introduced the Symphony™ All-in-One car seat with SureSafe Installation that increases proper installation by 2X. This new car seat system features revolutionary LATCH Guides and Quick Connectors to make the installation process easier."

My daughter is 5 1/2 years old and is about 47 lbs, and we had been using a different brand of carseat until we moved in April 2014, and then we put her back into a booster seat with no back. Well, when she falls asleep she tends to slouch over which I don't like when she isn't fully protected by a harness of some sort, and I knew that Car seat Safety Awareness Month was coming up in the fall, so I asked Evenflo about reviewing a new car seat for her to ensure her safety. They offered a few different options for me to choose from, and I decided to go with the Evenflo Symphony DXL All In One car seat for her. The style that I received is the Emerson, and I absolutely love the color! The price of this car seat style is $249.99 online at their retailer of Babies R Us.

This is one of Evenflo's award winning seats that happen to carry forward their passion for products that foster a safer as well as peaceful ride. This particular car seat is made to fit babies rear facing from 5 - 40 lbs, forward facing from 40 - 65 lbs, and then to a booster seat from 65 - 110 lbs, so you will  not need to buy but one seat for your child if you choose to go with this one, but I will let you know now that it's a pretty bulky car seat.

The Symphony DXL has an OUTLAST Performance Fabric that absorbs hot and cold temperature, releasing as needed. It's good with balancing your child's temperature for a safer and also more comfortable car ride. The car seat also has something called Buckle Pockets which actually protects the child from hot buckle burns that they may experience in a different seat, and it also eliminates digging under your child for famous lost buckles as I know I have experienced many times. It has a machine washable pad for this car seat. 

My personal favorite thing about this great car seat aside from the safeness and color, is the advanced Sure LATCH Technology which helps provide the parent with a safe and secure installation of the seat into the vehicle in about 60 seconds or less! For this latch technology, all you'll need to do is click the LATCH in your vehicle and then push down to hear and feel the seat auto tighten! This seat happens to include an e3 Side Impact Protection, which is designed and tested to reduce side impact forces up to 50%! 


  1. Looks like a great seat. So important to share carseat safety!

  2. Looks like a great set. I'll be needing something for my growing kiddo soon so I'll have to check this out.

  3. People often do not realize that car seats are an investment. Spending good money up front to get quality, saves money in the end.
