Britax Revolutionizes Car Seats By Getting Creative
There is nothing like that feeling of having a child. There is that feeling that no matter what it would take that you would protect that little person at any cost. As many new parents find out though, we suddenly realize that when he head to the car to take them home for the first time, we realize we have no idea what we are doing. Did we install the carseat the right way? What will happen if we didn’t? Are we going to totally fail as parents? Why didn't we memorize that car seat manual when we had the chance?
All of our stuff from our baby shower sat in the corner of our dining room for what seemed like an eternity. Then, the day came and while my wife was screaming in pain on the way to the hospital, I forgot everything I was studying in preparation for that very moment. I'm not even sure to this day that I parked the car in a safe area when we finally did make it to the hospital. Kids have a way of changing your plans. I used to cram with my wife before the baby was born. We read What To Expect When You're Expecting and poured over what Dr. Spock said about expectations. But with all the information you read up on to prepare yourself for that child, all this stuff gets log jammed in your brain. Pretty soon you are sympathy eating ice cream out of the freezer with a giant oversized spoon with the kind you would use when your college roommate refused to do the dishes. Car seats have pretty much been the same since our first child but Britax has changed all that with the revolutionary ClickTight Installation system. When something kid related comes around that changes the game, parents will want to take notice. Ever see something kid related and think "Man, I wish I had invented that!" The Harness-2-Booster seat did that for me and the installation blew my mind.
Fumbling with latches, and trying to get them secure is a hassle not to mention that when you have to transfer one seat from one car to another, you wonder if it is really worth the trouble. ClickTighttakes the guesswork out of installing it properly and what is even better is that it is just as easy to remove. Open the panel, stretch the safety belt across it, and snap down the panel. That's it!
We took our first car trip with the new seat towards the end of the summer. Our three year old loved the armrests built in to her seat and she could ride comfortably. As a guy who looks into the cupholder situation when it comes to new cars, the Frontier 90 has ample cup holders on both sides with a recessed area for toys or juice boxes with just the right size for little hands to access.
What is even better is that this car seat will grow with our daughter because it is a Harness - 2 - Booster model. With a weight limit of 90 lbs in harness mode and a weight limit of 120 pounds in booster mode, Britax is counting on being in your family's life for a long time. Another nice feature is the ability to remove the cover without removing all of the straps. With our little ones eating in the car and dropping endless snacks down the black hole that we call the seat, it's nice to have that option without disassembling the entire thing just to get it clean again.
Britax is a company my family and I have been investing in since the kids were small. With the wide variety of car seats, infant carriers, and strollers we know that each item upholds the quality and craftsmanship we have come to expect from them. Not only that, but Britax invests in dads in ways that some brands do not. For my personal Philly Dads Group, they are sending a representative to teach dads about car seat safety as well as supporting National Babywearing Week by sponsoring 11 cities across the country with Meetup events centered around babywearing. That is brand that shows me that while I am investing in them, they are also investing in me by building a relationship beyond just a consumer.
