Today I am so excited to share you with the car seat that we selected for baby F! It’s the Cybex Aton M Car Seat that is packed with safety features! Check out the video below to see how easy the Aton M car seat is to install, and continue reading to see why we knew this was the best choice for our growing family!
Cybex Aton M – Safety
Energy absorbing shell
The energy absorbing shell will absorb the forces of an impact and protect baby.
That shell, paired with the L.S.P. system creates a well rounded car seat that is sure to keep baby safe!
The Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System) provides extra safety in the event of a side-impact collision. The Linear Side-impact Protection System (L.S.P. System) systematically absorbs the force of a side-impact collision in a linear series of reactions through the use of the shoulder and head protectors. At the same time, the body’s kinetic energy caused by the impact is absorbed at a very early stage and the head is actively led into a safe position.
One note about the video: I show the L.S.P. system facing the inner part of the car. This was solely so that the viewer could see how it works. You will only use the L.S.P. system on the side closest to the door. If you install the car seat in the middle seat, you will not use either side.
European load leg
The European load leg prevents the seat from rotating forward and keeps the seat at the same angle during a crash to support and protect your baby. It also helps decrease crash energy by up to 50%! That’s a pretty huge decrease!
Note: If you are unable to extend the load leg to a locked position without pushing the base up, you can remove the floor mat – sometimes that small thickness is enough to help get the leg to the next locked position. Also – sometimes the indicator at the bottom of the leg won’t turn green until there is some pressure on it – like the weight of the carrier or the baby in the carrier.
This car seat integrates important safety technology into the chest clip of the harness to alert when potential unsafe situations arise. These alerts are provided through a vehicle receiver and the Mom/Dad’s smartphone to ensure absolute safety in a variety of unsafe situations.
Cybex Aton M – Features
This newborn insert is perfect for small or even premature babies as it creates an almost lie-flat position. It is very easy to remove as the baby grows. The infant insert can be used up to 11 pounds.
This really caught my eye when we were looking at car seats. It folds out to cover almost the entire seat. It also has 50+ SPF sun protection.
Easy height adjustments
The Cybex Aton M car seat is height-adjustable in 11 positions. Providing the perfect fit and maximum safety it allows the seat to grow with the baby and offers extremely long usability. Plus, not having to rethread a harness is a huge plus!
Campatible with many different travel systems
Whether you decide to go with a Cybex travel system, or another, this car seat is sure to have adaptors available for easy usability!
The Cybex Aton M car seat is extremely easy to use, easy to install and very safe. It is recommended from birth up to 18 months old or up to 35 pounds.
Plus, if you are traveling a lot like we plan to do, it is airline safe. And you can install the Aton M car seat without the base – making it perfect for travel! Overall, it is such a great car seat that I know Baby F is going to love!
