Baby Giveaway #1 — onBoard 35 Infant Car Seat from Safety 1st

THE PRIZE

safety-1st on board 35 infant car seat

Safety 1st is giving away the onBoard 35 infant car seat ($129.99) to one lucky reader!

MY REVIEW

Having a good quality infant car seat is pretty important for your new precious cargo! We have been using the onBoard 35 without our newborn, and it’s sooo much better than the car seat we had with our first, who was born weighing only 5 pounds 14 ounces. One of the things that I love most about the onBoard is that there is an insert that gives newborns that head support they need until their neck muscles are strong enough to hold up their head. The 5 point safety harness also has wide straps to keep small babies supported and secure.

safety 1st infant car seat onboard 35Another favorite feature of this particular car seat is that it has more legroom for babies. I am 6’1″ and my husband is 6’4″ so it’s no surprise we have long newborns that stay taller than average over time! This car seat really does have more legroom, and because of that, it’s more comfortable for our baby.

The last favorite thing is that the stay-in-car base has an adjustable mechanism to make the seat the right height for rear facing babies. It took us a little while to figure this one out – I guess we should have read the instruction manual more carefully… When we first put it in, it leaned too far forward so the baby’s head was flopping forward all the time. Extending that adjustable portion on the base was the easy fix to the problem. With our last car seat, we had to put a towel under it to get it right, and it was a pain. This base is so nice for this feature, and it’s easy to get in and out of the car if you need to switch.

The seat pad comes out so you can wash it – I forgot how messy newborns can be with all the spit up and the blow outs. Thanks goodness for a removable, washable pad!

The onBoard 35 is safe, comfortable for baby to sit in and for mom to carry, easy to get in and out of the car, and nice looking too! I love the neutral colors that are perfect for boy or girl and will stay looking great and fashionable for years to come. I give this Safety 1st infant car seat 5 out of 5 stars.

I hated my car seat with my baby… Its so heavy and awkward and I hate carting that one around. This one looks a lot better than the one I have… I think that the 5 point restraint and the newborn headrest are a MUST in newborn carseats. Looks very comfy! Some of my most favorite baby accessories are Safety 1st- They really have some great baby stuff!

I need to win this car seat because we have a baby coming soon and still need to get a car seat!

36 coralee johnson June 15, 2009 at 1:58 pm

My favorite Safety First product is the toliet clips. I know they sound funny but they can be a real life saver for someone with a baby who likes to “swish”.

37 coralee johnson June 15, 2009 at 1:59 pm

I if I win this carseat I will send it to my sister who is having a baby in 4 weeks.

I would have to say that my favorite Safety 1st product has to be the playyards. Having a 12 day old, the playyards make all the difference. Cause he can be in our room and there is a changing table for those 3 am feedings

42 FoxyJ June 15, 2009 at 4:49 pm

We’ve had a Safety First booster seat that’s lasted for six years and two kids. I would love to win the carseat because we desperately need baby stuff after assuming we were done and giving away our baby things. Now we’re having one more and I need a carseat! (I subscribe to the feed too)

I love the new electronic baby nail filer! How great to not have to worry about cutting those tiny fingers. I would love to have the car seat. After my youngest was born (now 4) we gave EVERYTHING away to a family in need. Not having to buy a new carseat for my new baby (due in nov) would be absolutely fantastic.

I really like the Swingtime Hammock- it’s a bouncy seat and swing all in one and it’s portable! Very Cool!
My 3 month old daughter is very long- 25 inches already- and is quickly outgrowing her infant seat. This seat would allow her some extra leg room as you commented about and looks much more lightweight than the one we are using now which is a reuse from our first daughter.

What a great car seat! I am in the market for a new car seat so I am so very excited to see Safety 1st is GIVING one away. My baby girl is due the beginning of September. With my last one, the stay-in-car base wouldn’t release so I had to bag that and hand buckle it in every time. It didn’t have any of the hooks to allow the straps to go over the baby…I had to go under…every time! That car seat is expired so we definitely need a new one :)

I am very impressed with the Safety 1st products. I would like to try their medicine dropper or set and measure spoon. My kids don’t like to take medicine!!

What a great giveaway. I am not expecting yet but we are trying and i would love for there to be one less thing I need to buy. I have two children already and I gave all my baby things away thinking I would not have anymore kids, well my husband and I fell like there is another child waiting to come to our home. I would love this car seat. My favortie thing on the Safety 1st website would have to be the Deluxe sit, Snack and Go 5 mode booster seat. I love the fact that it can go with you any were and easily be stored.

71 Rachelle June 16, 2009 at 8:48 am

I would love a new carseat! I gave ours to my sister when she had my nephew, so when baby #2 comes we’ll either have to steal it back or get another one…

Just found out I’m expecting #5 (hopefully no one I know reads this and spills the beans) and the car seat I have is from my first child in 2002…it’s out of date and not up to code, I don’t feel comfortable “winging” it any more! we need a new one so desperately!! this would be great as our finances are tighter and tighter since my hubby is returning to school in the fall.
thank you, as always, for the chance to win an incredible product!

Their website was very informational with many great products. Thank you for sharing! I will be checking your blog regularly. I don’t know how I have missed it this long.

I am due with my third baby in three years next month. As it stands right now, I will have three in car seats and diapers. I guess the product that I am the most interested right now besides the infant car seat would be the Summit™ Deluxe High Back Booster Car Seat. It looks really comfy and yet from the stats it may fit in my vehicle with three car seats of some kind in a row.
