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!
