REAL MUM REVIEW: Britax Safe-n-Sound Platinum PRO SICT


Since having our little Miss Mabel we have learned so much about healthy hips and hips dysplasia in babies. It really is such a common but crucial thing to pick up in the early days of life so it can be easily healed with the right help. Our little Miss was in the pavlick harness for 8 weeks and one of the main concerns of the doctors during this time was that the baby does not spend too much time in the car as most car seats hold their legs and hips in very tight positions which isn't good. There are different little tricks you can do to position baby for best hip positioning but long car trips are not recommended. What is interesting is that a lot car seats and capsules have so much cushioning around the hips that they really aren't good for babies hips at all. Our OT recommended the safe-n-Sounds car seats for healthy hips as all their car seats seem to have great room for little children's legs and hips so are a better option for hip dysplasia babies. If baby is in a harness; it's best to get your OT to get in touch with Britax to organise a special buckle to attach specifically for hip dysplasia kids as we have done. The best convertible car seat on the market currently is by far the Britax Safe-n-Sound Platinum PRO SICT and I am really excited to share my review with you as we absolutely love it! We have many trips in the car a day as we have school drop off, pick up, after school activities, etc. Our little hip bubba has to just come along for the ride and a lot of the time she isn't happy, we had lots of tears as we travelled from place to place before we tried this seat.

We have now been in the Britax Safe-n-Sound Platinum PRO SICT for 3 weeks and let me tell you that as soon as Miss Mabel went into this car seat, we had no tears. Besides the fact that it is like the range rover of car seats, it just looks so comfortable and it gives baby room. It is a bigger style convertible car seat; looking at it, you know it has safety first and foremost in line and there is no lack of quality. It is right on point with everything a baby and child needs in a car seat and every parent can feel totally confident that our precious cargo are safe in the car in the Britax Safe-n-Sound Platinum PRO SICT. I highly recommend this seat for hip dysplasia babies as it gives lots of room around the hips and thighs so legs can be splayed and comfortable while travelling without doing any damage to the hips. I know that when baby Mabel is in this car seat, she is comfortable and I have no fear of her regressing with her hip issues.


Thats what I have to say but here is some of the nitty gritty;

- The Platinum PRO SICT is Britax Safe-n-Sound’s most advanced convertible car seat.

- It has a revolutionary dual layer head and torso Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT™) minimises impact forces providing your child the ultimate side impact protection.

Features: 

ISOFLEX™ 
Equipped with ISOFLEX™ Connectors to provide a simple, firm connection into a vehicle with ISOFIX low anchorages in conjunction with Top Tether. ISOFIX is an alternative method of installation that may reduce mistakes that are associated with traditional seat belt installation.

SIDE IMPACT CUSHION TECHNOLOGY (SICT™) - TORSO PROTECTION 
Torso SICT™ minimises the energy impact on your child’s chest and vital organs, and reducing crash forces for greater protection.

SIDE IMPACT CUSHION TECHNOLOGY (SICT™) - HEAD PROTECTION 
Dual layer head protection minimises the energy generated in a side impact crash. The inner SICT™ layer provides 180° protection around your child’s head, whilst the outer SICT™ layer on the seat exterior absorbs immediate crash energy.

REAR-FACING FOR LONGER 
Your child can remain rearward facing until they are approximately 2-3 years old, which is safer for your child. 

ACTIVE HEAD RESTRAINT (AHR™)
Designed specifically with deeper side wings that shield and contain your child’s head in a side impact crash. AHR™ grows with your child working with SICT™ to contain your child’s head and to minimise impact forces. 

THERMO5™
This high performance fabric with Bamboo Charcoal delivers the premium comfort your baby deserves.

HASSLE FREE HARNESS 
Single handed height adjustable headrest and harness allows the seat to grow with your child without the need to remove and re-thread the harness. Reducing the risk of incorrect installation and enhancing correct harness fit. 

INFANT SAFETY CUSHION™ 
This cushion includes EVA composite material that provides support and protection for a small baby absorbing energy during a side impact crash. Specially designed ventilation holes offer breathability and comfort. Detachable wings are exclusive to the Platinum PRO SICT™ making this cushion flexible for longer use as a seat protector and cushion pad.


EZ-BUCKLE SYSTEM 
This system retains the harness buckle in a forward position and prevents the child from sitting on the buckle when boarding.
