There are countless brands that make and sell baby gear. For some, this can be a big plus, leaving lots of options to pick from. For many moms, however, it can be difficult to know where to start. And as a mom of two myself and an avid researcher that dives DEEP into videos, reviews, and tutorials, I've discovered that there really is a lot of baby gear out there that is subpar, lacking severely in quality and function! Baby purchases are already expensive as is, so it's important to make sure your hard-earned money is going towards something worthwhile! And that's why, at The Baby Cubby, we strive to only carry those brands that design beautiful products that are innovative, built to last and make life easier and more comfortable for parents and babies alike--which is why we LOVE Cybex!
Cybex truly believes that babies and parents deserve the best. This belief has led them to create products with "unique design, unsurpassed safety and quality, and intelligent functionality." As a result, their car seats and strollers are award winning and beloved by parents in many countries around the world! And in the past few months, Cybex has added some incredible new products to their collection of high end baby gear. From the Cybex Gazelle S 2 single-to-double stroller that truly stands above its competitors, to the brand new Cybex Cloud G and Cloud G Lux infant car seats, parents can't go wrong when shopping Cybex!
Cybex Cloud G & Cloud G Lux
We know Cybex loves creating innovative products, and the Cloud G and Cloud G Lux are no exception! These infant car seats feature an extremely unique quality that allows you to recline and extend the car seat itself. This allows for optimal child comfort through more ergonomic positioning through extended leg room and the reclined headrest.
This is a great feature to have if you're planning to use your infant car seat with a stroller, as you can click the car seat into place and recline your baby's car seat to allow them a more flat position for napping. Not only does this increase their safety, but comfort as well, as the Cloud G and Cloud G Lux offers 45% more recline than similar car seats.
In addition to the comfort extend recline, which is the most advantageous feature in these models, the Cloud G and Cloud G Lux are equipped with additional features that set them apart from other high end infant car seats!
When it comes to safety, both models include linear side-impact protection that reduces impact force by 30%. Both car seat bases also have an incorporated anti-rebound panel within the car seat base. In recent years, anti-rebound panels have gained popularity and many brands are starting to incorporate them into their designs, as research has shown they help to stabilize the car seat more effectively than a tight install alone. Anti-rebound panels also prevent sideways and rearward rotation in the event of a collision, which can reduce infant injury!
Comfort is another category that the Cloud G and Cloud G Lux car seats don't skimp on. From the car seat shells with built in ventilation to help your infant better regulate their temperature to the XXL canopy for optimal sun coverage, the Cloud G and Cloud G Lux are sure to keep your little one comfortable at all times. And of course, with the aforementioned comfort extend recline, nap time has never been more cozy!
And finally, it wouldn't be a Cybex product if parent convenience wasn't considered. The Cybex Cloud G and Cloud G Lux have a no-rethread harness and headrest as well as a high-quality Rigid latch that allows for a quick, hassle-free install in seconds! The buckle pad also helps keep the harness out of the way, which makes loading and unloading a breeze! And if you need a travel system, both models work seamlessly with all car seat compatible Cybex strollers!
