New Britax ClickTight on Frontier and Pinnacle Makes Installation a Snap

New Britax ClickTight on Frontier and Pinnacle Makes Installation a Snap

My husband is the car seat installer around here. I gave him the new Britax Frontier 90 with ClickTight technology without comment to see what he said. After poking around the manual for a few minutes, he installed the seat in about 10 minutes and excitedly called me over to share what he had discovered. He said that you simply lift the panel, thread through the seat belt, and “click”…the seat is tightly and properly installed. I’ve … Read entire article »

Stay Rear-Facing Longer: Britax Advocate 70 CS Review and Giveaway!

Saying a baby product is “a life saver” is a cliche but in the case of Britax car seats, it is the literal truth. I accidentally crash-tested our children’s Britax car seats a couple of years ago and, thankfully, the children emerged without a scratch. Later, I visited Britax’s factory and saw how dedicated they are to keeping our children safe. From their product development, personnel training, quality control, and even their marketing, safety is their … Read entire article »

Britax B-AGILE Travel System with the B-SAFE Car Seat

Britax B-AGILE Travel System with the B-SAFE Car Seat

Britax has an impressive safety record with their car seats but, until recently, they were known primarily (at least among my mom friends) for their toddler seats and high weight limit boosters. I personally used other infant seats, even though I knew that Britax is the industry leader in crash safety standards, because of the convenience of travel systems. Living in suburbia, my main use for a stroller is when my baby falls asleep in his … Read entire article »

Britax Advocate 70 CS Review and Giveaway

There are a lot of safety issues about which I try to stay informed…but there is one issue about which I am a true zealot: car seat safety. Proper Use of Car Seats Saves Lives For children between the ages of 2 and 14, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death. According to the CDC, “child safety seats reduce the risk of death in passenger cars by 71% for infants, and by 54% for … Read entire article »

Britax B-Ready Stroller

Britax B-Ready Stroller

If you are like most moms you have probably tried out several strollers before finding the one that works for you.  You may even have multiple strollers to meet your needs for different adventures. I have two children, ages (almost) 5 and 2, and another baby on the way.  So, I have a single travel system, a double travel system, single umbrella, double umbrella, and a double jogger, which I rotate depending on where I am … Read entire article »

New Britax Car Seat Technology: 70 Series

At the beginning of June, Britax invited me and a handful of other bloggers down to their factory to learn more about their product line. One of the most impressive things I saw there was the next generation of convertible car seats, announced at the end of June. The video really says it all: The key here is preventing head injury. Britax has designed this new generation of car seats with an eye to reducing … Read entire article »

High (Side) Impact

High (Side) Impact

After seeing firsthand how Britax car seats perform when really needed, I am incredibly thankful that we choose Britax and their “True Side Impact Protection”. As much as am a fan of “thrifty”, with car seats, we research and look for the best. Side Impact Protection “According to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, approximately one in four of all motor vehicle crashes that involve children occur from the side, and these crashes result in a significantly higher … Read entire article »

When we started shopping for a convertible toddler car seat, we immediately decided on a Britax–the Britax Marathon.  Britax has some of the best safety ratings and highest weight limits on its comfortable and well-designed seats.
