Sweet Southern Lovin recently had the opportunity to work with Diono and review a carseat. I am always one to make sure that my kids are securely strapped in and was very excited when I had the opportunity to review the Rainier for Kaylee. The Rainier is one of the newer car seats made by Diono. This car seat is a convertible plus a booster seat so it will grow with your child.

Upon opening the box, I was very surprised that it is ready to go straight out of the box. No need to put anything together which is really awesome. Check out a few of my favorite features of the Diono Rainier.

• The Ultimate protections for your little one. The Rainier has extra deep side walls which will provide enhanced side impact protection.

• Can be Rear Facing or Front Facing. With how laws are changing, the Rainier is perfect to keep your kids rear facing for longer. You can rear face children from 5 to 50lbs. For forward facing your child when they are older, the Rainier will hold kids 20lbs to 90lbs. Once your child is ready for the booster portion, it easily converts and will then hold children 50lbs to 120lbs and up to 57″ in height.

•5 point harness. I love the harness that is on the Rainier. It keeps kids safe and is easy to adjust and to tighten. The harness will fit up to 57″ in height.

• Space Saving Design: I love that this carset is designed with bigger families in mind. The Rainier is designed so that is it space saving while being safe. Now there is room for everyone in the back seat.

• If you have an infant, the Rainier comes with a luxurious two piece infant body pillow. This provides tons of extra support and comfort.

• The seat feature memory foam tecnology in the seat area. Let’s just say I am jealous with how comfortable this is.

  • Fits rear-facing children from 5 – 50 lbs

    I love how sturdy this looks! I recently saw a picture of my newest granddaughter in a very flimsy-looking carseat. I think I have to get her this one!
