EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Surround your child with safety, comfort, and convenience with this car seat that grows with your child for 10 years. The Britax One4life Car Seat can be used with babies and children from 5 to 120 pounds. This car seat has a click-tight installation that allows you to install it with confidence in three easy steps: Pinch to open, thread and buckle, and click it closed! The high-strength steel frame reinforces the seat structure to help keep it stabilized and the v-shaped tether helps slow and reduce movement in the event of a crash. It features full-body protection with two layers of side impact protection that surrounds your child's head, neck, and torso, and built-in cooling channels and ventilated mesh that improves airflow to keep your child comfortable. 

To recline the seat, press the button on the base of the car seat and adjust it until it is in the desired recline position, checking the recline indicator on the side of child restraint for the correct angle. To adjust the headrest and harness heights together, simply squeeze the harness and headrest adjuster at the top of the headrest and raise or lower it into the desired position.

To switch to Booster mode: Raise the headrest to the highest position, loosen the harness, store the belly and comfort pads in the click tight door, open the fasteners in the headrest cover and remove the harness straps, flip the headrest cover up to access the harness storage compartment, and store the harness and buckle. 

It comes in various different colors. 

Why Is It Useful?

One4Life's convertible-to-booster car seat grows with your child for 10 years, from 5-120 pounds and up to 63 inches tall. It features 15 different positions with a quick-adjust headrest and harness to create the perfect fit as your child grows, and nine different positions with the quick-push recline to help you find the most comfortable fit for your child and best fit for your vehicle. 

Who It’s For

This car seat can be used  with children from 5 to 120 pounds: Infant (5-20 pounds), toddler (20-50 pounds), preschool (22-55 pounds) and big kid (40-120 pounds). Use it rear-facing for children five-50 pounds, forward-facing for 22-65 pounds, and in booster mode for 40-120 pounds. 

What To Be Aware Of

The car seat has nap-friendly padding and fabrics, a removable head pillow and infant insert, two dishwasher safe cup holders (easily twist out for cleaning between rides), and covers that are safe to machine-wash and dry. 

Like any other car seat, the installation can take some time in the beginning. But I'm sure that with practice, it will not be a problem.
