Car Seat safety is incredibly important to me. With all the play dates and errands we run I want to be sure that the Car Seats I use for my children are safe and secure. I recently got the opportunity to review the The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seat . This seat is fantastic. I have installed a lot of Car Seats and this one was one of the easiest for me to install. For the first few car seats we have had I actually went down and had a NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) Tech install them for us. I was afraid we would install them incorrectly. With the The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seat I had no worries. If you are looking for a car seat that is easy to install, check out the The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seat . Did you know if you have a seat that is easier to install there is less of a chance that it will be installed incorrectly? The True Fit Convertible Car Seats have all been awarded high “Ease of Use” ratings from the National Highway Transportation Administration, NHTSA for short. What does that mean? That after reviewing the The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seats , labels, and instructions it was determined the The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seats were Easy To Use! The True Fit Premier Rebound (model C670) was awarded Five Stars in both the rear- and forward-facing modes, the maximum awarded by NHTSA.
The 5-star ratings by NHTSA are for the seats’ ease-of-use pertaining to:
• the installation features to support how well the car seat (child restraint) fits into the automobile
• how well the child is secured by the car seat (child restraint)
• the quality and usefulness of the instructions
• the quality and helpfulness of the labels in assisting the caregiver to be able to use the car seat (child restraint) properly!
The True Fit Premier Rebound (model C670) was awarded Five Stars in both the rear- and forward-facing modes, the maximum awarded by NHTSA.


Mikey loves his new seat. I actually tested it on our way to the Blogger Brunch in LA. He was comfy secure and safe. It gave me peace of mind knowing that he was in a safe seat that
has these new features:

The C670 model features smaller bottom rails and the patented Rebound Energy Management system?a flip-up rebound bar that actually helps manage the rebound in the unlikely event of a crash. Pull the bar forward and it snaps in place with your rear-facing installation, and flip it back when you move to the forward-facing installation.
This seat is fully-lined with EPP foam and has deep side wings that really surround your child.
We have added a center angle indicator in the front of our seat for use when installing in the rear-facing position. This new easy-to-read indicator will help you determine if you have installed your seat correctly. For your infant, it will indicate the advocate-recommended 45-degree angle for installation (without our headrest) and as you keep it rear-facing to 35lbs (with the headrest) you can check for the recommended 35-degree angle for installation.
We have also moved both side LATCH attachments so they are easy to access when you are installing your seat and easy to secure when you remove the seat from your vehicle.


I only use the Latch system when installing carseats. i feel that it is more secure and safer. When installed with the latch system there is no movement of the carseat and it is a truely safer fit. All of the True Fit car seats feature built-in lock-offs and a LATCH system for both the rear- and forward-facing positions. The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seat also color-codes all of their belt paths, making it easier for you to locate just where you should be putting your car seat belts when you install your seat. Wondering about side-impact testing? The True Fit seats all have deep side wings and they are all side-impact tested to International Standards!


I love adjusting features on the The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seat . It is so nice you do not have to rethread the seat you can easily adjust the handle to get the right fit for your child. Which also means that you can use this fantastic carseat from 5 to 65 lbs, and during the entire time of use your child will be secured in a 5-point harness. And most Safety Advocates recommend keeping your child in a harness as long as possible! Advocates also recommend keeping your little one rear-facing for as long as possible. The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seat has a removable headrest that really is easy to remove. One finger lifts the release and you are able to pull the headrest off until you need it, usually up to 22lbs. As your infant starts to grow, simply add the headrest back on and you are good to go in the rear-facing position up to 35lbs. And when your infant is ready to watch you drive (at 35 lbs or so) simply make sure that headrest is in place and turn your seat around. And remember, even in the forward-facing position, your child will still be using the 5-point harness.


To tighten the harness you simply pull on the True Fit strap. As your child grows, no worries that they will not fit in your True Fit. The interior dimensions of The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seat are large and comfortable. In fact, with the extra cushy seat pads and roomier seat, it may be hard to convince your child to leave their seat!

One of my absolute favorite features of the The First Years True Fit™ Rebound Convertible Car Seat is that it has a NO- RETHREAD system. You have no idea how happy this made me. If you have ever had a child that is going through potty training you can appreciate my feelings on this. Have you ever tried to adjust or rethread the harness straps on a car seat? Unless you have a few hours to spare, you will really appreciate our no-rethread, easy-to-adjust harness system. We have easy-to-access shoulder belt height adjusters on each side of the seat, and they are clearly marked with recommended positions (four) based on whether you are installing in a rear- or forward-facing position. All of this means you never have to spend time trying to figure out how to correctly rethread or adjust the harness.

Does your child ever make a little mess with their animal crackers in the car? The combination of the no-rethread harness and the easy-off pad makes clean-up a snap–literally, the pad snaps right off! Simply lift the center flap on the pad, unsnap the sides and clean up is as simple as can be. And once your pad is clean, it snaps back on in seconds hassle-free!

  3. I follow your blog. I learned that the chest clip should be at armpit level. Insure the harness strap covers on top of the shoulders.
