A car seat that becomes a pram!

53

Flashback to 2013 when my first baby was sleeping soundly in the car seat and I would have to use all my ninja stealth tactics to ever so quietly open the boot, heave out the pram, open it and close the boot without a big bang.
Then, when that was done you would slink around to the side of the car, check that no aunties were around to ambush you with idle chitchat, whilst you attempted to gracefully unbuckle baby and transfer baby from the car seat into the pram and then close the door without slamming it, all the time not breathing and hoping that your damn cell-phone would not ring at that critical moment of transfer.  Phew! What a work out!

Doona Next Generation Car SeatFast forward to 2017 – My Second baby is sleeping soundly in a car seat so I open the rear car door, undo a 3 point seat belt, adjust lightweight handle, lift car seat out, squeeze lever at back of seat, wheels extend (I kid you not – just like an aeroplanes wheels on landing), adjust handle and off you go!
Your car seat has transformed into a very swanky looking pram right before your eyes . . .and baby is still snug as a bug and sleeping.

This is all thanks to the Doona Next Generation Car Seat – a first of its kind, created with space, safety , mobility and practicality in mind.

This seat was created by parents who went in search of something that would suit their travel needs and did not find anything – so they created the Doona.

This brilliant invention acts as a rear facing car seat and is suitable for newborns up to 13kgs. The seat comes with a removable infant insert providing extra safety and comfort to your new precious cargo.

The Doona Next Generation Car Seat is certified as a car seat and as a stroller – pretty awesome!!!

Doona Next Generation Car SeatFor me safety is a huge factor some of the safety features are that it is made out of PVA and BPA free materials.

But what about the sunshade – Does it offer enough cover and protection- it has 50+ SPF protection. The collapsible folding wheel design also creates a double wall structure to offer enhanced side impact protection for baby.

One of the great things is that it comes standard with a removable infant insert which offer even more protection and security for your tiny being.

Another benefit is that the seat is suitable to be used when flying (check with your specific airlines first, but all international carriers allow the Doona on board, including SAA and British Airways) and you can just wheel your bubs straight up the aisle to your seat and then convert it into a car seat.

Doona Next Generation Car SeatThe pram handle is adjustable and  when shopping I was able to pull rather than push the pram.

What’s also brilliant for a South African market is that if you take public transport, including taxis, you just push the pram up to the taxi, fold in the wheels and then pop the car seat into the taxi. I love it.

There are 7 colours available of which 6 are available on the South African market.

The brake and release on the pram are very simple as they are colour coded and are operated by your foot.

The seat can be installed using your car’s 3 point seat belt.

Doona Next Generation Car SeatCleaning – The fabric cover is easily  removable by just unhooking a few clasps  and press studs and then you throw it in the washing machine.

South African and international celebrities that have endorsed this system include:

Graeme Smith

Jo-Anne Straus

Rolene Straus

Wayne Roony

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Ronnie Wood-Rolling Stones

Novak Djokovic

I would highly recommend this car seat and I just wish that they would develop something similar for older/bigger babies and toddlers.

The recommended selling price for this is R5 999 and is available at Baby Boom, Kids Emporium, takealot.com, babygroup.co.za and a few independent stores.

  11. Doona™ was designed to provide parents a safe and practical mobility solution for their baby, both in and outside of the car. Doona is simply revolutionary, innovative and practical and universal. We have been following Doona ever since it reached South African shores. We will be first time parents soon and what a way to go about our new life. We have heard so many stories of how mum and dads as well who have laboriously manoeuvred a bulky car seat back and forth and also had to carry along separate hard-to-fold stroller any time that they leave the house with baby. Just leaving the house sounds like an effort. Just getting out the door requires multiple trips and an unplanned upper-body cardio workout. Its seems like such a daunting part of parenthood and something that really isn’t at all what we are looking forward to. I know that every new parents feels this way, but we have waited so long to be parents. To bring another person into the world who is half of you, is mind blowing. Already I know that there is nothing that would bring us complete peace of mind than knowing that our baby is at all times safe.

  15. Amazing prize! Fingers crossed for the win. Im expecting a baby girl in May and really need a car seat and pram. This all in one next generation car seat is so practical and will definitely come in handy.

  16. The Doona Next-Generation Car seat, Its just amazing and makes life easy for new moms, any mother can bare witness that the first six months are the most difficult, baby wants mommy next to him/her and needs extra attention whilst on the other hand mommy hardly rests, so the Doona car seat means that mommy doesn’t have to carry baby around or carrying baby on her back everytime she goes out, they can use the car seat in the car and outside as a stroller if taking a walk or doing some shopping which makes life very easy.

  17. The Doona car seat is every parents dream. It makes traveling fun and easy for both the parent and the child.
    And I love the fact that it has the following things mentioned below:
    The Doona next-generation car seat has multiple fail-safe mechanisms which prevent:
    1) Unintentional folding of the Doona next-generation car seat
    2) Sudden extension of the Donna handle while in carry mode
    3) Rotation of the extended handle while the Doona next-generation car seat is in “on-the-go mode”

    Please please please pick me. After 11 years of trying 3 bouts of fertility treatment with my partner of 5 years we finally got pregnant only to be abandoned by my partner. So now I am having to do everything WE had planned but on half (less than half ) the original budget. Winning this would be ideal financially and practically making life as a single mom a little easier. …. #holdingthumbs
