Baby Safety Month with the BRITAX BOULEVARD 70-G3 Convertible Car Seat + Giveaway

 

 

September is Baby Safety Month and there are definitely so many things to be aware of to make sure your baby is safe! We have gone through our house and made sure that everything is baby-proofed and attached our furniture to the walls. But one of the most important things about baby safety to me is car seat safety.

We travel a lot and with 3 kids, I want them to be the safest they can be. 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 result in a significantly higher injury rate than frontal or rear impacts. With most car seats, you may accept as face value that the seat is safe but BRITAX car seats actually provide Safety That You Can See!

When my 5 year old son was a baby, we kept him in an infant car seat until he was a year old. Then, we bought a convertible car seat and turned him to forward-facing. With our twins, I want to keep them rear-facing for as long as we can but I know that they will grow out of their infant car seats soon. I have to admit I was kind of nervous about putting our 6 month olds in a convertible car seat because it seemed like it just wouldn’t protect them as much. But I am 100% confident that the BRITAX Boulevard 70-G3 will keep my little girls safe – I even feel like they are safer in this than their infant seats!

If you’re looking for a car seat that will grow with your child, the BRITAX brand of car seats is your go-to brand!

Why Should You Feel Safe With BRITAX?

You’ll find that all BRITAX seats are fully loaded with best-in-class safety features that far exceed federal standards. BRITAX engineers each seat to divert crash forces away from your child and to minimize movement to keep them safe and in place. Each BRITAX convertible car seat is engineered, tested and built in the United States to ensure superior quality and ALL BRITAX convertible car seats have more safety features than any other brands.

BRITAX Boulevard 70-G3 Features

There are so many amazing safety features on the Boulevard 70-G3 and the best part is you can actually see what a safe seat it is.

– The BRITAX Convertible Car Seat Bases have something called SafeCell Technology which features SafeCells, an engineered structure, designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the vehicle seat in front of the child restraint. The integrated steel bars also strengthen the seat’s connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing in a crash.

– We have been in a car accident where we were hit on the side of our car. Luckily it was low-impact but ever since then I’m always scared when driving with my 3 kids in the car, imagining an accident. BRITAX convertible car seats feature a rigid shell with deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing foam providing Side Impact Protection.

– I was really worried that at 16 pounds, Evie wouldn’t fit snug into her seat and her head wouldn’t be very protected or would lean to the side! Not true at all! The BRITAX Boulevard 70-G3 provides a second layer of protection with an energy-absorbing True Side Impact Protection head restraint that keeps the head, neck and spine aligned.

–  Another important feature is the BRITAX HUGS™ Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology®, {you can identify it by their honeycomb design} which is engineered to ensure proper positioning while SafeCells compress to manage energy and reduce forward movement.  The reduction of forward movement is critical because even tiny increases in head excursion — the distance the head travels forward during the crash — can exponentially increase the risk of head injury. I’ve always been concerned that the chest clip isn’t comfortable or could slip down but not so on the BRITAX Boulevard 70-G3!

Like I said earlier, I’ve always been nervous of putting little ones in a convertible car seat, even rear-facing but I’m not anymore! I love that this seat can grow with my child. The BRITAX Boulevard 70-G3 can be used rear-facing from 5 to 40 pounds and forward facing from 1 year and 20 pounds, up to 70 pounds.  That means both my 6 month old girls and my 5 year old son could fit into the car seat!

    I look for high ratings. We were in a minor wreck when our oldest was still in a car seat, so we know being prepared for anything is best.

    I look for the best height/weight restrictions; something that carries a kid as long as possible, as well as high safety ratings.

    Harness and Side impact tests are so important in making a purchase I look up in Consumer reports too
