Finding the right car seat that fits your car and your baby can be a daunting task. I know I was not looking forward to it, and when I was looking into car seats that would keep Shelby comfy during our long road trip last month the only brand I could think of was Britax.
Shelby is almost 18 months, 20 pounds and about 30 inches tall so I wanted something that would fit her now and give her tons of room to grow. I really liked the look of the Boulevard 70-G3 and the small base would fit great in hubby’s Dodge Ram.
Britax is a brand I can trust and know that my child’s safety is most important. When I first saw the Boulevard 70-G3 I loved it. I could see all the safety features right in front of me.
The Boulevard 70-G3 offers True Side Impact Protection. True Side Impact Protection is a system that encompasses multiple areas of the seat including the deep side walls of the seat shell and the adjustable head restraint. It also includes the energy-absorbing foam that lines the head restraint. This protects your child’s head from side impact in crashes.
another feature parents will love is the ease of the HUGS Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology and EZ Buckle system. HUGS (Harness Ultra-Guard System) Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology are affixed to the car seat shell to ensure proper positioning. The chest pads contain SafeCells, which are engineered structures that are designed to compress in a crash and manage energy to reduce the amount of impact forces experienced by your child.
Both the HUGS Chest Pads and EZ Buckle system help parents to properly buckle their child into the car seat. Too many times we see the CHEST clips at the the stomach or too loose. I am thankful that Britax offers such a great design.
The Britax Boulevard 70-G3 is a convertible car seat which means you can use it with a baby weighing 5 pounds (from newborn) to 40 pounds (child) rear facing and then when you move your child forward facing from 1 year and 20 pounds, up to 70 pounds.
Britax also recommends that babies stay rear facing until the age of two (or longer). The Boulevard includes an infant body pillow to provide extra comfort and easy cleaning without disassembling or uninstalling the child sea
The non-slip contoured Base grips and protects the vehicle seat while offering optimum vehicle fit. Fits great on cloth but when on leather you don’t have to worry about the bottom moving around.
Installing the carseat is so easy. Britax has made it very user friendly. We use the Premium Lower LATCH Connectors for a quick and simple installation featuring a push button for easy release. The LATCH is by far the easiest way to install your car seat. Britax LATCH connectors attach to the lower LATCH anchor in your vehicle and provide an audible click when the connector is securely attached.
All passenger vehicles manufactured after September 1, 2002, are required to have LATCH anchors for attaching the child seat directly to the vehicle.
If your car does not have the LATCH then you have other options to install your car seat like the should strap. If you are using the shoulder strap to install your car seat you will be happy to hear that Built-in lock-offs have been designed into most BRITAX convertible car seats, as well as rear-facing infant car seats, to take the confusion out of trying to figure out whether your vehicle seat belt system can be locked while installing the child seat in your vehicle.
The lock-offs hold the vehicle seat belt in place until the vehicle seat belt has to do its job.
Britax has designed their car seats to make installation easy. One guide I like is the blue line level guide. The blue line will be parallel to the ground when installed correctly. Allows for parents to adjust as needed. I had to tighten the straps to bring the back of the seat a little lower.
Safety is number one when it comes to our children. If your in the market for a Car Seat i highly recommend Britax!
