Review: The Award Wining Doona Car Seat/Stroller

If you haven’t yet seen the new award winning Doona Car Seat/Stroller it is one of those products that get released now and again that you think, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ The Doona is the next generation infant car seat that combines the highest standards in safety with a revolutionary integrated travel system which has already won multiple industry awards. So when we were offered one to review I couldn’t wait for it to arrive! At only £299.99 it can make life easier for busy parents that need to get baby in and out of the car with minimum fuss! With a simple press of a button the car seat transforms into a stroller which is ideal for something like the school run or travelling abroad with a baby! I sure wish I had one of these when we took Oscar to Sardinia when he was six months old as it cost us £70 alone to hire a car seat in our hire car for the ten days.

We have been lucky enough to be sent a Donna car seat in Storm colour to review and I absolutely love it! On the school run nearly everyone has commented on the Doona saying what a fantastic idea it is. As well as putting the seat in the car with the three point harness you can also purchase the Isofix base for £99.99 to make getting around even easier. With one click you can attach and detach the seat from the Isofix base then press the button to release the wheels and that is it, you are off. Fitting the Isofix base in the car was just as easy only taking about thirty seconds to securely fit it to the Isofix points in my car.

 I absolutely love the Doona car seat and when popping to the shops and getting Oscar from school it makes life so much quicker and easier. The seat itself is well padded and very comfortable for Archie made from Bamboo Charcoal fibre which is anti-bacterial, hypoallergenic, humidity and thermal regulating. The seat is also much bigger than other infant car seats meaning it will last much longer.

The adjustable handlebars make it really comfortable to push and when in stroller mode it is sturdy and easy to manoeuvre. It is so easy to push that Oscar has been pushing Archie around in it. 

Converting it from car seat to stroller is so easy with just one click of a button and the integrated wheels pop out and the carry handle with one button extends in to the handlebars. I love that the straps feel like Archie is really safe as it has a five point harness rather than the three point harnesses you get on most carseats. 

 To fold back into a car seat it takes literally five seconds with the easy instant fold and with the one touch break it is quick and easy to secure.

There are extra accessories available to purchase for your Doona: a all day bag, essentials bag, insect net, Isofix base, rain cover, snap on storage, sunshade extension, wheel covers and travel bag. The car seat comes with a seat protector and last week I purchased the wheel covers for £9.99 which attach to the seat protector to keep your car clean.

The Doona is the perfect car seat for busy parents and make getting around with your baby quicker and easier. The Doona has truly saved me time when out and about and I can’t stress how much I love it! It is truly one of those products that I have been raving about to everyone and suggesting it to my pregnant friends to get. Using the Doona after having a caesarean was great as it is light to carry in and out of the car and I didn’t have to carry a car seat down the drive at school or keep having to lift my heavier travel system in and out of the boot all the time. I love forward to making more #doonamoments!
