Britax Chaperone Car Seat (ARV $269)


I must admit, I’m enjoying my second baby much more than my first for many reasons.

  1.  Baby 2 isn’t a crier, she usually enjoys sleep and is all around pleasant.
  2. I’m much more relaxed as a parent; I’m much more confident and not at stressed.
  3. I pretty much have everything I already need for a baby, clothes, accessories and even cloth diapers.  There are some things however that need to be purchased once again.

We had our children 4 1/2 years apart, so by the time baby 2 came along, we needed a new car seat.  There was no question in my mind which type of seat I wanted – it was Britax.  These are known for their safety features and good quality.  Here’s a little story:

Baby 2 was born in December, at just a few days old my oldest daughter had a Christmas party.  I took baby 2 with us to the party, she was maybe 10  days old and probably close to 5.5 pounds (pretty darn small).  There was another Mom there with a baby and she was oogling over my little angel.  When the party was over, we were packed up and I put Baby 2 in her new Britax car seat.  The other Mom made a comment like “WOW, that is the Cadillac of all car seats”.

I hadn’t really thought about it, but she was right and to be honest, I think my little princess deserves a Cadillac.  There are many reasons this car seat is a standard above other brands.  One thing I noticed when it first arrived was the little insert in the back of the seat which accommodates my itty bitty baby to make sure she’s in her seat really snug and tight.  Once she reaches 11 pounds (which should be soon), this insert can be removed.

Another safety feature is in the base called the anti-rebound bar.  This bar fits snug against the seat of the car and if we were ever to get into an accident, the base will not be able to tilt forward as the bar wont allow for any movement.  Let’s hope I never have to experience how well it works, but I do have faith in it.



With my daughters previous car seat (a non Britax) the straps had to be manually moved from one slot to another as my daughter grew.  There were periods when they were either too low or too high.  I’m not sure how safe this was, but there would be no other option.  With the Britax Chaperone, the shoulder straps move up and down easily with 8 different positions at about a cm at a time (most others have about 3 positions).  This means the shoulder straps fit perfect at all times.

The car seat clicks into the base easily, but I find I have to squeeze the handle extra hard to get the car seat off the base – which isn’t a bad thing.  That seat is not coming off the base inadvertently.

We’re extra pleased with the Chaperone, there isn’t too much more important than safety when it comes to babies, especially in a car. And don’t you think this little doll is worth keeping safe?  I sure do.

  7. Everyone around me thinks I’m crazy when it comes to car seats and trips with kids. And I also don’t understand how people could buy the safest car seats and not to buckle up their kids properly, saying it’s uncomfortable when it’s too tight… Dying – that’s uncomfortable!

  8. It is the most important thing for us. We want to make sure our kids are contained and safe during any accidents.

  9. Safety is very important to me, that is why I would love to win this for my nephew’s new baby, she is due March 11:)

  10. Safety is very important to me. I do not care that the law says I can turn my wee one around at a year old. The laws of physics say she is safest to rear face as long as possible. I will rear face her as long as there are car seats available that rate for high weight limits to rear face.

  11. Safety is very important. I’d rather spend more on a car seat knowing that it has additional safety features.

  12. Safety is of the utmost importance to me when it comes to the safety of my grandchildren. That is why I would love to win the safest carseat in the world for my car. My daughter has a Britax in her car so I know how great they are!

  13. Some people think I’m a little paranoid about safety but I would just rather be safe than sorry.

  14. As an expectant mother, I am busy reading up on the safety ratings of all the products my little one might need. Safety is something you cannot take a risk with. Like they say, better safe than sorry!

  15. Safety is extremely important to me. I seen that news report about that child that went through the rear window in the accident and I was horrified that the parents did not have the child restrained.

  16. Safety is my number one priority. I know I can’t bubble wrap my children but I can at least buy the best “safest” gear for them!

  17. Safety is very important to me!! (my husband often tells me I am being overly cautious…. but better safe than sorry 😉 )

  18. Safety is the most important thing to me when picking a car seat. My boys are my everything! Britax is, by far, the most recommended brand of car seats among all my family and friends.
