Britax Convertible Car Seat- Safety You Can See {& Giveaway}

Our boys have actually known nothing less than Britax car seats! They came home from the hospital in a Britax infant carrier and then soon were moved into a Britax Convertible Car Seat because their legs hung off the end of the infant carrier. When I was going to be a first time mom, I had asked a lot of mommy friends about their favorite car seats and my husband did his research online as well. We found that Britax was a brand that we could trust not only for safety but for comfort as well! 

Recently we had an opportunity to test out and share with you their NEW Britax Boulevard 70-G3 Convertible Car Seat. I was very excited about this car seat from the moment I began reading about all the great features and knew it would be perfect for our growing family!

Featuring SafeCell Technology and True Side Impact Protection, the BRITAX BOULEVARD 70-G3 Convertible Car Seat helps keep your child safe and comfortable in the car. It’s packed with safety features like integrated steel bars and a tangle-free, five-point harness while also offering exceptional comfort with high-density foam padding and a plush cover. The BOULEVARD 70-G3 accommodates children rear facing from 5 to 40 pounds and forward facing from 20 to 70 pounds.

I was very excited about the fact that this car seat would actually fit both my youngest son who is 2.5 and only 28 pounds and our baby girl who is due in February! It is the perfect car seat to have around that will fit soon to be two of our children with just a few quick adjustments.

Benefits of the Britax Boulevard 70-G3: 

    • True Side Impact Protection diverts crash forces and keeps spine aligned
    • Base with SafeCell Technology compresses to counteract forward momentum
    • Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether anchors seat and slows forward movement
    • Integrated steel bars reinforce seat stability
    • HUGS with SafeCells minimize forward movement to protect child’s head

My Favorite Safety Features Include: 

HUGS Chest Pads Keep Child Secure:The BRITAX BOULEVARD 70-G3 comes with HUGS (Harness Ultra-Guard System) chest pads which are affixed to the car seat for proper positioning and protection during a collision or sudden stop. These chest pads are made of SafeCell material, which compresses to manage energy and provide resistance as your child moves forward in a crash, thereby helping to prevent your child from coming in contact with the front seats or other vehicle parts.

Britax’s HUGS chest pads are even softer than before with even more protection! I love that Britax is not only looking out for our little one’s safety, but also their comfort! As parents we all know that a sleeping baby in a car seat is a GOOD thing; and thanks to their HUGS chest pads and soft interior, I have a feeling our kids will be sleeping even better! 

SafeCell Technology for Advanced Protection : The base of the BOULEVARD 70-G3includes SafeCell Technology comprised of SafeCells, an engineered material designed to compress in a crash. This compression lowers the center of gravity to counteract forward rotation of the seat, helping to minimize the risk of head injury during a collision.

True Side Impact Protection Diverts Crash ForcesThe BRITAX True Side Impact Protection system guards your child’s head and limits injury by shielding from vehicle intrusion and absorbing crash energy. The car seat has deep sidewalls lined with energy-absorbing EPP foam. This combination diverts crash force energy away from your child while creating a barrier against possible intruding objects. The head restraint offers a double layer of energy-absorbing foam and keeps your child’s neck and spine properly aligned in the seat.

While I love the ease of booster car seats, I do worry about Little Brother’s head not having any protection! I love the soft barrier that this seat offers!

No-Rethread Harness System and Comfort Features The tangle-free, five-point harness allows for multiple height positions and can be adjusted without dismantling the harness or removing the car seat from the vehicle. Two buckle positions provide a snug, comfortable fit as your child grows. Harness holders prevent the straps from getting in the way when you’re putting your child in the seat, while an EZ-Buckle system maintains the harness buckle in a forward position to prevent your child from sitting on it when first entering the seat. High-density comfort foam provides an extra layer of premium cushioning, while rear- and forward-facing recline options help your child relax on the journey. And the plush cover comes with matching comfort pads and an infant body pillow to keep children of all ages comfortable and secure.

I love that ease the the no-rethread harness offers. No longer will I get stuck with the car seat taken apart and need my husband to rescue me! :) No longer will I have to completely take my car seat apart when adjusting the height; this is perfect for having the car seat for more than one child too!

Another reason we love Britax is that they are EASY to install from one car to another! This allows us to take them on airplanes, pass them off to grandparents to put in their cars, etc. Britax has kept our boys safe for over 4 years and will continue doing so for many more!

    The main thing I look for is if it can hold my growing kid. My kids grow quickly-in height and weight. I need a car seat that will last as they get older-and bigger. I want my kids to be safe until they can legally be out of a car seat and booster.

  3. I love how this car seat is safe and comfortable!

  4. We look for extended rear facing weight limits, side impact protection and easy installation.

  5. We look for easy installment and the ability to hold the child as they grow.

  6. We look for something that we know has been a proven seat to handle any situation.

  7. Jessica Frey says:

    I look for side impact protection and high weight/height limits. Love Britax! :)

  8. A high 5pt harness weight limit

  9. I look for a five point harness and good side impact protection technology.

  11. This looks like a great seat. Rear facing and convertible with a great safety rating is important to me.

  12. We look for a car seat that can be rear facing and forward facing that provides as much support as possible for the child. Comfort is also a bonus!

  13. My baby just turned one, but she is small for her age. I am just starting to check out carseats for when she grows out of her infant carseat. The side impact protection seems to be an important safety feature, as well as the energy-absorbing tether!

  14. dianne hall says:

    I look for good reviews and 5 point harness

  15. Convertible with a high safety rating is important.

  16. 5 point harness

  17. Comfortable harness and a great safety rating!

  18. We look for head support and side impact.

  19. I look for its safety record of course, but also to be honest for ease in installing and tightening. I’ve had seats that are bears to get installed correctly!

  20. I look for a high rear facing weight limit

  21. tiffany z says:

    I was always look at the safety features & reviews

  22. Destini Boxall says:

    I look for the option to extended rear face, ease of use and installation.

    Latch system for easy and safe install

  25. I like the reviews for the Britax carseats in addition to the side impact protection and five point safety harness system.

  26. Kristin Welch says:

    I look for 5 point harness and side impact protection. Weight and height limits are also important.

  27. I like it to be easy to install correctly and for high weight limits for rear facing use

  28. I look for great side impact protection plus a child proof five point harness.

  29. Ease of installing in an airplane

  30. It’s a great car seat! We were on a budget so price was the primary reason for choosing this car seat, but it turned out great! The seat fabric might not be as nice and cushy as more expensive ones, but my 6-month-old is perfectly comfortable and well protected in this seat. No unnecessary bells and whistles to make it bulky or heavy!
