If you missed out on Diono Day, we've got everything right here to catch you up! We learned so much about car seat installation and safety from Diono's resident car seat expert, Allana Pinkerton, and so will you. Check out the four videos below and you'll feel like you were right there with us the whole time.
Nat and Allana started Diono Day in New York City's Central Park. Nat introduced us to Allana, who shared details about herself and what she does for Diono. It was a great way to start out the day and get acquainted.
Next, they headed to Albee Baby, a popular boutique baby gear store in Manhattan, to show us the newest Diono car seats. Allana took some time to walk us through their important safety features and explain what's so special about Diono. She even demonstrated an installation and gave us tips on how to install your own car seat. It was super interesting and helpful!
Then Nat and Allana headed outside to meet up with twin parents Donna and Dan who are getting ready to transition their babies to convertible car seats. Donna and Dan also have an older child so they were concerned they wouldn't be able to fit 3 convertible seats across rear-facing in their Volkswagon Tiguan. But Allana made it happen thanks to the Diono Radian 3 RXT, and she answered a ton of their questions throughout the video. I bet you'll learn a few things too!
To end the day, Nat and Allana stopped over at Whole Foods to sit down and finish answering all the parent questions that they didn't get to throughout the day. Allana shared even more of her wealth of car seat safety knowledge and prepared all of us for a safer ride with our kiddos. For more information on Diono, visit their website at http://www.diono.com.
