Britax Car Seat Review & Giveaway
I love Britax car seatsand feel that it’s one of the safest brands around. All 3 of my boys are in car seats (both convertible and booster) and I feel that they are safe traveling around in the car in them. I was introduced to the Advocate CS from Britax and was quite impressed with the durability and design of the car seat. The Advocate CS is certified for Aircraft Travel and can be used either rear or forward facing with recline for child comfort and postioning. Your infant will be comfortable with the Infant Body Pillow, creating a custom fit for your little one.
The Advocate CS comes with a Patented, Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether, complete with staged-release tether webbing and anchors the top of the child seat at two points to minimize forward movement in a crash. HUGS (Harness Ultra Guard System) reduces forward head movement and cushions the chest in the event of impact. Built-in Lock-Off(s) secure the vehicle seat belt so that the child seat doesn’t move more than one inch side-to-side or front-to-back at the belt path. Installation is made easy (and securely) with the Small Contoured Base, ensuring that you have a tight installation in all types of vehicles. The Energy-Absorbing Base deforms in the event of a crash to absorb impact forces. The Premium, Push-Button Lower LATCH Connectors, making for a quick, simple, and tight installation.
The Advocate CS includes convenient Harness Holders that keep harness straps out of the way when placing your child in the car seat. The Front Harness Adjuster provides effortless front adjustment when loosening the harness system. You’ll love the Quick-Adjust Head Restraint and No Re-thread Harness Adjustment which allows you to easily adjust the harness shoulder height and head restraint without dissassembling the harness. The Five-Point Harness mades contact with the strongest parts of the body.
Comfort and safety are two important features you should look for when searching for a car seat for your little one. You’ll feel safe putting your child in this car seat with the Energy-Absorbing Foam Liner (EPS), which absorbs and distributes crash forces. The High Density Comfort Foam provides an extra layer of padding to gently cushion your child. The Plush, Premium Cover Set comes with a matching belly pad, providing extra comfort. The Flexible Mount System allows the side impact cushions to move multi-directionally for easy access to the installation and height adjustment features.
The Advocate CS has a 65-pound weight capacity for safety and comfort through the toddler years. You can purchase the Advocate CS in stores online. It retails for $369.99.
If you are preparing for a baby or know of someone who is, you’ll want to check out the Britax Chaperone! There are so many amazing features that make the Britax Chaperone easy to love! The Chaperone is durable and functional, in addition to being a good looking car seat! The Chaperone is Certified for Aircraft Travel and has a design that makes it compatible with strollers. It works with Britax Chaperone strollers and other major stroller brands when used with the Britax adapter strap. \
The Chaperone includes an easy-to-install Seat-to-Base Design that self-guides the carrier into the proper locked position. The Easy-to-Install Base comes with LATCH Connector Storage. The Easy-to-Read Level Indicators (on base) provide quick reference for proper angle of recline. The Built-in Lock-Off(s) secure the vehicle seat belt so that the child seat doesn’t move more than one inch side-to-side or front-to-back at the belt path. A Front Harness Adjuster provides effortless front adjustment when loosening the harness system. No Re-Thread Harness Adjustment allows you to adjust the harness height without having to re-thread the harness straps. The Height Adjustment Knob (on base) creates a proper seat angle and positioning. Premium, Push-Button Lower LATCH Connectors make it possible for a quick, simple, and tight installation.
The Ergonomic Carry-Handle is designed to contour to your forearm, allowing for a more comfortable way to carry your child in the carrier. The Energy-Absorbing Foam Liner (EPS) absorbs and distributes crash forces and the High Density Comfort Foam provides an extra layer of padding to gently cushion your child. The Extra-Large Canopy blocks wind, rain, and harmful UV rays from your baby’s sensitive skin. The Plush, Premium Cover Set comes with a matching belly pad that provides extra comfort.
The Britax Chaperone has a 30-pound Weight Capacity for safety and comfort through the first years. The Chaperone is available in stores and online and retails for $229.99.
I think that Britax is a reliable brand and I am happy to stand by it on my site. I use Britax for all of my boys and have nothing but great things to say about it. A big thank you goes out to Britax for creating a car seat that is durable, functional, and looks great as well!
