The 10 Things That I Love the Most About the Diono Quantum
My toddler’s new ride is the very amazing Diono Quantum. I will, of course, do a full review of this travel system soon but I thought I’d write a post highlighting the aspects of the Quantum that have really impressed me already in the couple of weeks that we’ve been using it.
Here are the 10 things that I love the most about the Diono Quantum:
1. The Hood
You can’t miss the hood or eclipse canopy as it’s called. It’s brilliant! It has four tiers so you can adjust coverage to suit you. It’s great for protecting against the elements whether it’s sunshine, wind or rain and it has a peek-a-boo window, a ventilation panel and a pull-down sun visor too. It’s so useful for protecting my little one and I’m very pleased that I don’t have to worry about a separate sun cover when using the Quantum.
2. The Shopping Basket
When it comes to pushchair shopping baskets, size really matters and bigger is better. The Quantum has an XL shopping basket that fits so much and you can easily get to it from both the front and the back if you angle the seat. It’s mesh so it’s easy to see what’s where too. I can fit three soft bags of shopping! So far, I’ve not had any problems fitting what I need for the school run, days out with the kids or supermarket shopping. I’m usually a bit of a pack donkey with bags everywhere but now they all fit in the basket. My shoulders are thanking Diono!
3. Easy Fold
Once I learnt how to fold the Quantum, it’s really easy and you can do it one-handed if needed. I’ve had prams for years before that I struggled folding but not this one! It folds compactly too if you remove the seat.
4. Easily Reversible Seat
Many pushchairs come with reversible seats but they’re usually quite annoying to change. With the Diono Quantum, you just lift the seat off and turn it around and click it back in. You don’t need to change any of the attachments or anything like with other pushchairs that I’ve used. Now I will actually use this feature because it’s easy!
5. Carrycot & Toddler Seat in One
You use the same part to make the carrycot and the toddler seat. Such an innovative design! You simply connect four clips to make the carrycot into a seat. This means you don’t have to store anything other than the slim mattress and carriage liner and use the same part from birth to when your child is done with pushchair riding and wants to/can walk everywhere. It’s the only travel system you’ll need!
6. Car Seat Ready
The Quantum is car seat compatible and the adaptors are included which makes it quite a perfect travel system. You can choose which car seat you want separately to go with your pushchair. It’s compatible with popular brands like Maxi Cosi, Cybex and Nuna.
7. Easy Clean Wheels
I like that the wheels can easily be removed to be cleaned when needed.
8. Co-ordinated touch points.
All the buttons and handles you might need to use to adjust things and fold the pushchair are colour co-ordinated so you can easily see where you need to press, push or pull. This makes it really easy to learn how to use the pushchair and for other carers to figure it out too.
The seat is padded and comes with a reversible liner. My toddler looks really comfortable sat in her Diono Quantum and can sit up properly when she’s awake and then recline for a nap.
10. Easy Assembly
The Diono Quantum was really easy to assemble! You really just click the wheels into place and add the basket as it is or clip it together to become a seat. Then you add the hood and you’re ready to use it!

I was gifted this pram for my review. As always, all my reviews are 100% honest and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
