Evenflo wants to make sure that you have a safe and fun summer experience with your kids. They have come up with some statistics for car seat installation. 60% of moms and 63% of dads confess installing their car seat was challenging, while 5% of moms actually compared the experience with going through labor.
The challenge doesn’t end when the seat is installed, parents expressed other car seat frustrations: Adjusting car-seat straps got parents in a tangle the most (60%), followed by making sure the straps were tight enough (48%). It’s no surprise, as a third (34%) of parents say their child has wiggled out of their car seat and one-fifth of parents admit this happens at least once a week.
To help keep your kids safe they have developed the Evenflo Momentum 65 DLX Convertible car seat featuring e3 Side Impact technology that provides superior protection in side impact crashes with an expanded zone of protection.
Parents are humans and are not exempt to frustrations of the road! Parents admit that when in driving mode they don’t always take the high road: Almost three-quarters (74%) of moms and dads admit to cursing at another driver in their child’s presence, while 28% have flipped the bird, and 21% have rolled down their window to scream at another driver. While 30% of parents say they never swear in front of their kids in the car, 61% say they sometimes let the loose language fly.
And talk about a wheel distraction: attending to a baby while driving causes 38% to miss their exit once in a while, and 12% to miss their exit often and has caused 38% of parents to get lost. To help minimize the distractions on the road Evenflo would like to send one winner The Ultimate Savvy Parent’s Car Kit.

I was not financially compensated for this review. I received a travel pack for review purposes. This is my honest opinion.
