Summer Infant Prodigy Car Seat Review

Back me up on this parents...sometimes the car seat for infants are the hardest part about being a new parent!!!

New parents are already overtired, exhausted, and not thinking straight all the time. The last thing they need is a car seat that is hard to install, hard to carry, and hard to put the baby into. Parents shouldn't have to worry about whether their brand new baby is going to fall out, fall over, or roll around in their seat!

I was on a mission to find a car seat that was not only super safe for my baby girl, but super easy to install so that I could do it on minimal sleep and also have family do it by themselves too for when we are visiting!

I think I have found the one! I am so excited to introduce you to the revolutionary Prodigy Infant Car Seat from Summer Infant!! It is the most unique car seat I have ever seen or used because it is guided by Smart Screen technology and has a revolutionary belt tightening system! With 7 out of 10 car seats currently being installed incorrectly, the Prodigy takes the guesswork out of a proper installation and replaces it with a secure fit to both the car and baby.

My daughter is a tiny little one and I have to say I LOVE the removable newborn head and body support. Our other seat did not have this and her head bobbed around during car rides and I hated seeing that or trying to tuck blankets around her to hold her up! With the Prodigy, the head and body support fit her like a glove and she never slouches or falls over anymore! When she grows, I can just simply take them out!

It fits perfectly in our car, even next to my son's front facing seat! I love the neutral colors and the material of the seat is so soft and plush!

I love the Smart Screen technology and the smile that appears to let you know you’ve installed it correctly! It REALLY is that easy! It even walks you through the 3 step installation process. My husband had it installed in a matter of minutes! There is also a test button that you can push periodically to make sure everything is still installed right - I love peace of mind when it comes to my newborn! :)

The second part that makes it easy to install is the innovative belt tightening system that help easily fastens the base to the car with one hand. No more contorting in the back seat to get a perfect fit!

The seat itself is a little heavier to carry than our previous one, but I feel like that is because it is made to be more durable and comfortable! I will definitely be building some muscle carrying this seat around - especially once my daughter gets bigger! :)

There is a matching Upstart Stroller in Uptown fashion available if you want to have the matching set, but keep in mind the car seat is rear facing only and fits child 4 to 32 lbs and 32” tall. The base also requires 3 “AA” batteries but they are included (Love that!).

All I know is that I before we received and installed this seat, we had our newborn girl using our other older seat and she was never this comfortable, safe or easy to carry or install!! I highly recommend this car seat for children that need to be rear facing!

Buy It: You can purchase the Prodigy Car Seat at many local and online retailers!
