Nuna Rava Convertible Car Seat Review

by - October 04, 2018

When it comes to choosing a car seat the safety feature is my utmost priority, seeing kids in a car without car seat in Malaysia is pretty common, it really gives me a heart attack because working in a hospital environment I seen too many cases of misfortunate that can happen. Yes, I've been known to be pretty paranoid about things but why take the risk right?

Driving always comes with a certain amount of danger because we'll never know who's behind the wheel, as a parent we are responsible to do everything in power to keep our kids safe. Do you know in an event of a car crash if they are not seated and strapped in properly they may suffer excruciating injuries that might cause their life? Isn't it scary?

Well as for me, I will rather be late for an appointment than going off without a car seat, this is a way to train your kids to sit in one, once they got the hang of it, it'll be easy, the trial period are the hardest and being firm is really important. Miya knows the car will not move until she's strapped in and I make an effort to strap her in before going to my seat, that's the way we roll and so far it's been working well.

With the arrival of Mina, I need to look for another car seat because my Maxi Cosi is expiring this year and I just needed to replace it. Instead of getting another carrier car seat I decided this round we should invest in a convertible car seat and that's how I found my new love - Nuna Rava

Why did I choose the Nuna Rava?

#1 Safety Features
Nuna Rava is one of the safest car seat, it features energy absorbing foam, side impact protection, an all steel frame, and a reinforced belt path for superior protection

#2 Easy installation
I've always struggled with the installation of a car seat because it's just so complicated. Nuna Simply™ Secure Installation is dummy proof, with the
True tension™ doors / just slip the seat belt through, press down to secure the car seat.

#3 Length of use
Nuna Rava is a convertible car seat that'll grow with your kids, with the advantage of both rear- and front-facing positions it is suitable for children newborn till 7 years old

#4 Longer rear facing
Rear facing is safer because in the event of a collision it supports the head, neck, and spine. While the average car seat only limits your kids up to 14kg, Nuna Rava will accommodate kids up to 22kg because it has an extendable 2 inches of legroom and 10 recline position

#5 No rethread 5 point harness
This is super convenient, it allows us to change the harness height by pressing a button in the front of the seat while pulling the straps and raising the headrest.

Good to have features?

#1 Cup holders
It's available on both sides of the car seat and it's really convenient because it can be tucked away when it's not in use.

#2 Seat belt holder
I love things neat and tidy, I really hate adjusting the scrambled seat belts each time I use it and these make my life easier.

#3 Ventilation panels
Although the seats are made from breathable knit fabric it's still a lil stuffy especially when we live in Malaysia, it's summer all year long but the ventilation helps especially when I'm on a road trip it makes it more comfortable for my kid.

The Nuna Rava is one of the nicest looking convertible car seat in the market, though it's wider and bulkier than the normal ones but it is the safest, which is the most important factor I considered when I got it. It's also newborn compatible, with 5 recline positions for rear facing and forward facing, newborns need to be placed at 45 degrees for so it was my perfect choice for the point of time I got. Overall I'm super satisfied with the car seat, so no regrets.
