I cannot believe it is June already and in a few short weeks our little baby girl will actually be here!  With a few very busy weeks ahead of us,and jam packed weekends, I feel like her due date is going to sneak up on me before I know it.  And, after my most recent appointment with my OBGYN it looks like my end of July baby will most likely be a beginning of July baby…crazy!  Anyway, lately I have been going through all of Addison’s old baby things and making a list of things we still have left to do before our little girl’s arrival.  So far on my list I have: sterilize bottles, order some new parts for my pump, wash the remaining baby clothes and blankets, pack our hospital bags (I’ll have a whole post on what I’m packing coming soon!), add the final touches on her nursery, and of course install the car seat in our car.  I’m sure there are a ton of things I am forgetting, but that’s all I’ve got for now.

Until I had Addison I just assumed a car seat was a car seat right?  Well, boy was I wrong!  There are so many choices, and you really have to think about ease of use and how it will work for your lifestyle when choosing the right option.  I was so excited to be asked to try out the new CYBEX Cloud Q car seat after reading about the many unique features the car seat had to offer.  The sleek design and extended canopy are probably two of my favorite things about the seat.  I know it’s kind of silly, but I definitely don’t think you have to sacrifice style by any means when it comes to baby gear.  Just like how I dress or how I decorate our home, I like things with cleaner lines, and this car seat is not bulky by any means.  Another thing that I love is that the leg base that comes with the car seat makes it easy to snap in and out of the car and also significantly reduces the risk of a head or neck injury if you were in an accident.  I know whether you are a new mom, or a fifth time around mom, the last thing you want to be worrying about is if your baby is safe in your own car, and this feature definitely helps put my mind at ease.

One of the most unique things about this car seat is that is is the only seat on the market that will actually recline for you when baby is out of the car.  So, if you put it in your travel system you can recline baby to make them more comfortable while you are out and about.  While I’m sure this time around getting two kids out of the house will be harder I am not one to stay put, so any feature that makes it more convenient us to be out with family and friends is a major plus for me.  While it also comes in a variety of fun colors, I opted for black sea option and love it!

If you have any other questions about the seat, feel free to email me or leave a comment below!  Happy Wednesday!
