Diono Pacifica Convertible+Booster Car Seat Review

Convertible+Booster Car Seat

As a mom, the top thing you are going to need is a car seat. You are going to want a SAFE one, such as this Diono Brand! If you are like me, I do not want to buy a car seat then have my child grow out of it yet to just buy a new one! Especially with how expensive car seats are these days. With the Diono Pacifica I have received that will not happen since the weight limit is 120 pounds!! This Convertible+Booster Car Seat is great since you can use it from 5 pounds all the way to 120 pounds.  

My son has fell in love with this car seat, He seems so relaxed with it being a memory foam! With the body pillow it adds more comfort and security for my little one. Everyone who has seen my son's new car seat call sit a Cadillac since it is so nice!! We get compliments all the time on it! 

This car seat was very easy to install, right now we are using it rear facing, and it literately took 5 minutes to put in the car! This Diono Car Seat came packaged very nice with all the pieces as well as instructions you would need to use it! 
I could not contain my excitement when this came in, my son immediately started crawling into the car seat! Obviously he loved it right away too!  

The car seat is very well made, durable, long lasting, and safe! 
With me having a car, we do not really have to much room especially with a car seat in the back seat. Although this car seat looks enormous, it actually takes up less room than my old Graco did. It is very space saving I find. I honestly could not of been more impressed with this Diono Pacifica Convertible+Booster Car Seat. I was honestly not expecting for it to be as amazing as it was, I have truly came to love this car seat.

  1. These carseats look so incredibly well built. I love the color options they have on their site, and that they can go with baby from birth to a seatbelt! This makes having one well worth it. You did an amazing job on this review, thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Wow they look and sound durable! I've been considering this brand for awhile now. Thank you for all of the info!

  3. I love the Pacifica, we got the Rainier for my newborn and never thought of the Pacifica which would be perfect for my 5 and 3 year olds. I will have to tell my sister about this model for her daughters.
