When purchasing a car seat, parents want to be sure they're making the right choice for their babe that also aligns with the needs and budget of the family. At The Baby Cubby, we know it can be hard when there are so many options. When is the cost worth the added features?
One thing we can say for sure is that investing in the safest car seat your family can afford is always a good choice, and one convertible car seat that we recommend over and over to parents is the Nuna Rava-- its safety ratings and design make it one of the safest car seats on the market, and the easy install and comfortable fabrics make it a parent favorite!
So if you're currently in the market for a new car seat, here are some of our favorite features of the Nuna Rava FRF Convertible Car Seat that will prove that it is well worth the investment!
Nuna has been a leader in car seat construction and safety, and the Rava checks off all the boxes for parents when it comes to reliably keeping kids safe in the event of crashes.
The Nuna Rava is designed with a steel frame (compared to many car seats made with aluminum or plastic frames) and it also has a reinforced belt to cut down on twisting or tearing. It also features Side Impact Protection (SIP) to protect your babe's neck and head.
Another safety feature that we love about the Rava is the high rear-facing weight-- You can keep your little rear-facing for longer in the Rava, because the weight capacity is 50lbs! At The Baby Cubby we take car seat safety seriously! That's why we have 6 Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Techs to help make sure you are confident when it comes to purchasing, installing, buckling, and positioning your car seat, and we're happy to help show you how to fit the seat in your car and how to make it work for your car and your little!
Okay here's the deal, when you're talking about getting a new car seat, the main thing you need to consider is how easy it's going to be for you to get it into your car and how easy it is going to be to get your kid into the seat. If you have to fuss with different yoga positions to install it correctly, have to remove pieces to rethread straps or have no clue on earth if it's even clipped in right, then it's not worth your time or money.
That's why the convenience features on the Rava make such a big impact on the parents who purchase. Here are some of the features that make your life about a million times easier, and make sure that your little is actually strapped in to a safely installed car seat every time!

Comfort and Style
While not necessarily on the top of your list when it comes to car seats, you may be wanting something that doesn't completely make you cringe every time you look in your rearview mirror. The Nuna Rava is sleek and stylish, and we carry it in several different colors to help you find one that will match your personal aesthetic.
Another thing to love about the Rava is the fact that the fabrics are not only soft and breathable for your child, but they are also made out of bamboo fabrics that are free of flame retardant chemicals and are also temperature-regulating, hypoallergenic and antibacterial. That means that you're buckling up your babe in something that is so much safer that the average seat, and it's so comfortable that even the pickiest of babes will love riding in it!
If you're investing in a car seat, you want to know you'll be able to use it throughout the life of your child's car seat days, and that is exactly why the Nuna Rava FRF is one of our highest rated convertible seats. It will last with your babe from 5 lbs (with infant insert) all the way up to 65 lbs.
It also has 10 recline positions, and 10 different headrest heights so that you can perfectly adjust the seat to fit your child's size without feeling like they're busting out of the seat when they're not ready for a booster. Your child will be able to ride comfortably in the Rava for longer!
