The first time my husband and I installed a car seat (NINE years ago), it did not go well. He tried to install it while I impatiently kept asking, “Do you know what you’re doing? Are you sure you know what you are doing?”
He thought he did.
He did not.
We ended up driving an hour to a friend’s house in Connecticut and as we came around the final bend to their house, the car seat tipped way over – almost landing on its side. Oh my gosh. We sucked.
Thankfully, our friends were seasoned parents and taught us how to properly install a car seat that would be safe and not simulate an amusement park ride for our baby. And since then, we have had lots of experience installing car seats. Rick is a champ at it, while my strengths are more geared to assembling and disassembling a pack ‘n play in record time. I hope someday there will be a game show where we can showcase these talents.
Now when Britax asked me to review its Boulevard 70-G3 Convertible Car Seat, I immediately thought, “A CLEAN CAR SEAT!! YAHOO!! SEND IT MY WAY!!”
And I can officially report that it is indeed very clean. I mean, obviously not for long.
I liked the seat right away because it just looks super safe. In fact there is so much padding and protection, I was worried it would bother my twins but instead 3-year-old Harlowe described it as cozy. Here’s what else the twins had to say…
(To recap video: Harlowe likes the Britax Car Seat. Chase likes talking about poop. Baby Cash doesn’t talk.)
Another thing I like… all Britax seats have safety features that far exceed federal standards with serious side impact and head protection. Head injuries are the leading cause of vehicle crash-related deaths for children up to 12 years old so it’s vital to protect that precious cargo. Plus, the seat diverts crash forces away from your child and minimizes movement to keep them safe and in place.
I know sometimes people long for the good ole days when you threw your small children in the back of the station wagon and just let them fly with every turn. But I like to worry about things and a car seat like this makes me worry less.
