Britax – Car Seat (ARV $369) – CLOSED

Safety is very important to me and my family.  It took a long time for my husband and I to get pregnant, and thankfully after lots of practice, we have a precious baby girl!  I’m sure many people would call me paranoid, or over protective, but her safety and well being is so important, that yes, I admit I may go overboard sometimes.  One place that I think no parent can go overboard in safety is car seats, and I received the ultimate safety seat from Britax for review.

Britax sent us the Advocate CS, which is a high capacity convertible seat.  This car seat has so many features, and it’s cute too in the fab pink and brown print.  Although my daughter is upwards of 30 pounds and is 19 months, I could have used this seat rear facing since the day she was born.  The seat can then turned around at 1 year old or 20 pounds and can be used until 65 pounds.  I don’t think any other seats can be used from 5 – 65 pounds!  So we still have lots and lots and lots of adventures to take in our new Britax car seat.

The car seat was super easy to install, simply put the seatbelt through a small opening near the rear part of the seat.  There is also an extra safety clip that hooks onto the back seat of the car (most cars come with this little clip).  That was it, the seat was in the car and we were ready to go.

One thing that was frustrating with our previous seat was having to the adjust the harness.  As my daughter grew bigger, the harness straps needed to be adjusted.  We had to take the seat our of the car, and unhook the straps, and thread them through on a higher adjustment.  With this Britax car seat there is no need to take out the seat to adjust the straps.  There is a a knob on the side of the seat that you turn, and it adjusts the straps – that’s it, it’s that easy!  I absolutely love this feature.  The back has a screw like feature that heightens or lowers the straps while I turn the knob – genius.

The car seat also has some comfortable features for the kiddies. The 5 point harness system not only has extra safety features such as the HUGS system, but also has comfortable neck pads, one for each strap, so your child’s neck wont scratch against the thick straps.  In her old seat, I used to have to pull her shirt between her neck and the strap so this wouldn’t happen.   There is also an extra pad under my daughters bum, just in case an accident were to happen in the car seat.  You can remove this little pad and wash it, rather than having to wash the entire car seat cover.

Upon first receiving my car seat, I thought it was going to be way too big for our car, as it did seem bigger than our  current seat.  This is mostly because the side impact panels are very thick, making this car seat extra safe.  However, after putting it in the car, it’s not really much of a difference at all.  There is still enough room for 2 people to sit in the back seat.  It might be a bit of a tight squeeze, but it can be done nearly just as easily as it was with the other slightly smaller seat we had before.

Overall, I am so pleased with our new Britax car seat.  I feel that my daughter is super safe in this thing.  It is pretty much the Cadillac of all car seats.  Not only is it safe, it’s adorable, and it’s comfortable too.  It seems that every time we go for a ride in the car, my daughter is asleep in just a few minutes.  This alone is a God sent because lately, our little precious angel isn’t sleeping that well, so there is little quite time for us adults.  If it seems that it’s going to be one of those no nap days, we simply put her in the car in her Britax car seat and our princess is out like a light.  The great part is, she doesn’t lay forward, like in her old seat.  She leans back, so there is no worry about her being uncomfortable leaning forward during a nap.

I would suggest this seat to anyone, it is amazing!

  8. I would love to win a car seat. I really like the cow pattern but the pink on is cute too! I have tall, little people so these sound fantastic. We currently use a car seat by Evenflo I think and I hate the buckle. It was a hand me down from my sis and free is always good 🙂

  10. Wow, this is a great giveaway! We need another car seat for the second car, so I would choose the Frontier.

  11. Those carseats and strollers look amazing. I like the one with the cow print. They look very well made.

  12. I like the look of the Decathalon. Would be great to have a convertible f for the grand babies visiting!

  13. I love how when you go to their website you can enter your childs info to see which seat best fits. My fav was the advocate car seat. All of the seats also look soo comfy!

  14. I’d like the Britax combination Harness-2-Booster seat so I can take my nephew on trips in my car!

  15. I would love to try the blink stroller, as it is compact and looks as thought it would be great vor vacations.

  16. I visited Britax 🙂
    I love the fun patterns!
    The cow print is too cute,
    but I love the pink/brown floral best 🙂

  17. I want the advocate. I have a marathon that i don’t like much because it’s hard to adjust anything on it. but i’d like to see the new one!

  18. The Britax Chaperone Infant Car Seat would be perfect for us as we are awaiting the birth of our first little one and safety is our highest priority when choosing a car seat.
    Thank you!

  19. I have the Britax Boulevard which I ordered from the US before it came to Canada (and I paid over $400 to get it here!) but I need a second seat for my next baby due in the Fall. I would LOVE to try the new Advocate CS!

  20. Like all parents, I love all the safety features of the Britax car seat. My choice of product would be the high capacity convertible car seat. I have a big baby boy, and the extra weight capacity is a good thing. Love the side impact protection and that handy strap adjusting feature!

  21. I LOVE the blink stroller! I’ve been searching for a reasonably
    priced umbrella style stroller that reclines!

  22. I have an eight month old baby girl and she will soon need to be in a forward facing seat, the Britax car seat looks like a very good quality car seat! Not to mention the cute pattern!

  23. I like the ADVOCATE CS –pink for our little girl. These look great and we are almost out of the infinfant seat

  24. I would love to have the Britax Frontier. It would allow us to keep our
    child in a harnessed car seat for as long as possible.

  25. Can’t blog or tweet and I have no web site.
    So I’ll Facebook and post to show my delight.
    My Wee View on Britax inspired this rhyme,
    and I hope I’m not too late to enter this time.
    With 5 kids, 8 grandkids and one on the way,
    I’d be thrilled if I won it, in this giveaway.

  26. I want any of their strollers for this nice weather, I am drawn to the Verve and Chaperone Full size.

  27. I love my Britax roundabout, but need to get another for our second child. I was thinking about the Marathon. These seats are the best!! Thanks for the review on this one.

  28. If I were having another baby now, I would like to have the Chaperone infant carseat – I love the anti-rebound feature!

  29. My wife and I are expecting a baby at the end of Oct/10. It would be great to win one. Thanks for the opportunity.

  30. What a fabulous giveaway thanks!
    The Roundabout looks like a great seat for my granddaughter. I’ve heard
    such great things about Britax!

  31. I would like the Diplomat car seat because its the safest child seat that fits my granddaughter properly

  32. The Advocate CS looks fantastic. I especially like the push-button LATCH connectors (instead of the stupid hooks!) and the no re-thread harness adjuster.

  33. I would actually love the car seat you reviewed, the Advocate CS, or the Marathon pattern is cute, too:) What a great product!

  35. I want to get a rain cover though I wouldn’t mind getting a new stroller too! The Blink looks like a nice compact stroller to keep in the car.

  36. Love the contest! I really like that the car seat is so useable for older or larger kids. And the ccolor is great!

  37. I have always liked our Marathon carseat and now I really like the next step up for our little guy – the Frontier 85 in Rushmore!
