Doona Car Seat

Ergonomic. ___ ___ Babies’ natural and recommended positions are either lying flat on a solid surface or in their parents’ arms. In these positions, a baby’s body is free to move, thus encouraging its development. However, in today’s world families are much more “on-the-go”, requiring parents to secure, and often restrain, their baby when in transit. Doona™ was designed with this primary goal in mind: to provide parents like you with a safe and practical solution for carrying your baby. Global Engineering, Safety and Medical experts spent the last several years developing Doona™. Their key focus was ensuring that your baby is safe and comfortable both inside and outside of the car. Naturally, Doona™ was designed to achieve maximal protection for the baby in the car. However, due to the nature of the product, and inspired by the position of a baby in its mother’s arms, Doona™, and its unique Newborn Insert, were designed to fully support the baby even when used outside of the car. The baby’s position in the Doona™ allows it to interact freely and maintain direct eye contact, thus facilitating its development. As with any stroller, car seat or other such device, medical professionals agree that a baby should not be restrained for long periods of time. Therefore, Simple Parenting recommends not to keep your baby restrained in the Doona™ for longer than required. ___

Doona Car Seat

Is it practical? Doona’s entire purpose is practicality. If you’ve ever had to awkwardly carry a car seat across a parking lot or through a crowded city street, the easy release of wheels makes those treks less painful. Lifting is limited to putting it in and taking it out of the car. And for those who’ve opted for travel systems to lessen the times they have to carry a car seat, you still have to endure the agonizing routine of getting the stroller out of the car, unfolding it, and then getting the car seat out and locking it into the stroller. With the all-in-one Doona, however, it’s a few seconds before you are out of the car and ready to roll. (Interestingly, the Doona is heavier than most car seats because of the wheel apparatus, but I didn’t notice it for weeks because I so rarely had to carry it.)

We’ve been using the Doona for 3 weeks and so far, we’re really impressed. Gone are the days of lugging a heavy infant car seat on our arm, or having to get a stroller base out of the trunk! We also have an older child who has extracurricular activities and preschool so we’re in and out of the car a lot, and so is baby. The Doona fits our lifestyle well. As others have mentioned, the Doona is heavier than regular infant seats, so if you do have to lug it for a bit (say, up a staircase), you will feel the burn. My one gripe is that the wheels are already a little creaky. Nothing a little WD40 won’t fix, though.

Would I buy it? Based on price, I’m sticking with my current system for now. But if money was less of a concern, I wouldn’t hesitate to get the Doona as an alternative for flights and weekend errand-running. Never mind the ease of getting in and out of a car with it, just getting in and out of my apartment has been made infinitely simpler because of Doona’s minimalistic design. If you can afford it and if time is a premium in your life (with a baby, how could it not be?), consider it. At the very least, keep tabs on the company for future developments. If they somehow figure out how to extend the Doona’s usefulness and make a convertible car seat, you’ll find that it’s the smartest invention you wish you’d thought of first.

I actually really love my doona. I haven’t used it quite yet but I have been messing around with it. Once you get the hang of things, it’s quite easy to use. I’m having a csection again and I thought it be great since I wouldn’t have to actually carry the car seat around. But lifting it from the base is going to be tough. You have to hold the safety button down and then push the whole thing in with one hand and then lift the car seat off with the other hand. I’m not sure if my husband is going to know how to remove it. To get the wheels out the button clicks pretty loud but my wheels come down smoothly. It’s just the one click that makes the noise. To put the wheels back down I had to watch the video to see how they did it. You have to put your feet in front of one of the wheels and then click the button down. But overall I love the look and conviencence of the doona. The car seat is for rear facing only. That’s what it says on the box. So if you have a big or long child, you prob won’t be using the car seat as long.

By AmazedByDoona Illinois Baby Gear Awesomeness!!! August 18, 2016 I just received my Doona and I’m absolutely in love!!! I first saw a promo video for this baby gear awesomeness well over a year ago and I knew that if I had another baby this would be first on the list of things to buy. I purchased my first travel system through Albeebaby.com and was so pleased with them that I immediately went to their website again hoping they carried the Doona. Baby J isn’t due until December but I couldn’t pass up the amazing accessory bundle with purchase. Price is a bit on the high end but it’s worth every penny not to have to lug the giant stroller around to click the carseat into and the quality it top notch!!! I’m having a girl but decided on the Storm color so we can use it for future children as well, I was a bit concerned it would be too drab but it’s absolutely stunning. My 6 year old already loves it and can’t wait for his baby sister to get here so he can push her around in it. We travel often and I can already tell this is going to be amazing and super convenient. I’ve watched MANY videos and read many reviews on the Doona explaining the quality and I was still amazed by just how awesome it really is.
