Doona

While we don’t generally recommend car seats that aren’t built for purpose, the Doona has proven to be a safe, reliable and convenient car seat in required and additional crash testing. #CarseatFullstop rating - 4/5 The Doona operates as a compact rearward facing infant car seat, which can be used up to 13kg or 81cm (whichever is reached first). The seat itself weighs 7kg. The seat installs simply with a seat belt alone. Alternatively, you can purchase and use an ISOfix base which it clicks into. It has a built-in travel system and unfolds into an easy-to-use pram. The car seat is also approved internationally for use on flights, although you should double check with your airline in advance. Crash testing explained by #CarseatFullstop here (link). Safety Ratings: Passed basic safety standard: ECE R44/04 External testing: ADAC +2.4 (Good) Which? 61% (with seatbelt); 62% (with base) We do not recommend using any car seat other than an infant car seat for a baby under 13kgs or 75cm. An infant seat is specifically designed to protect your developing baby.

My son is 19 months old and has used his Doona for the first 18 months of his life. It was perhaps the Best Buy I made for him as a parent and I wish it was available years ago so I could have bought it for my older son! The Doona can be used up until your child is 13kg, which my son isn’t quite there yet (almost!) but he is tall and like the another mom mentioned, your child cannot face forward when being pushed around, which had my son sitting forward and peeping from the side. We travelled twice overseas since he was born (at 3 months and at 18 months) and both times we took the Doona and it was a lifesaver! We hired a car in all 3 countries we visited and it made life an absolute breeze because he was comfy enough to nap when he was tired. Locally, we have travelled with it as well. And just for daily use, it’s been fantastic! When he was younger, I would just remove the Doona from the car when I got home (if I found him asleep) and then convert it to a pram and park it in my lounge until he woke up. As he got older, it did become heavier to move him around while strapped inside. I would highly recommend the Doona pram bag that attaches to the back of the Doona as there isn’t space to hold/hook parcels or anything else on the handle. I’m very glad I bought this product and made very good use of it!

I'm interested in purchasing this product, but can anyone tell me how long you used it for, before your toddler outgrew it, as a car seat, stroller or both? I understand the convenience of having a 2 in 1 product, but I'm wondering if there's a reason for travel systems coming with separate car seat and pram. Any mama's out there who can give advice before I make a decision? I want to love it, but have reservations. Much appreciated!

We’ve had our doona for the last 5 months now. It’s used daily, and we simply love it! It is so convenient, although it is abit on the heavy side, when having to pick up your child in it. The only problem I have is that my baby wants to see things so I can’t push it any other way other than facing me. But other than that it’s so easy to use and such a good buy!
