But our Honda Odyssey and our Britax car seats did their jobs. My entire family walked away from the accident…
February 1 through 15, 2009, Britax will be holding a sales event in the Baby store with select Britax car seats marked down by as much as 20%. Most Britax car seats on Amazon will be included in the offer.
As winter approaches, so does the need for keeping baby warm. But, as most parents know, you are not supposed to place heavy layers between baby and the car seat or the safety harness. Taking off an infant’s jacket and putting it back on every time you take baby in and out of the car […]
