Since my re-brand last February, you have probably noticed me writing about a little more than just recipes. (The whole purpose of my re-brand.) 🙂 I love sharing with my readers the different experiences I have with various products, so that maybe I can help you make well-informed purchase decisions. This is especially important to me when it comes to baby products. There are so many choices out there of brands, features, styles, accessories, that it can be very difficult to make up your mind on which to choose. It’s no different when it comes to car seats, yet it’s probably the most critical area of making sure you choose wisely.

September is Baby Safety Month, so let’s talk about choosing a safe convertible car seat! Britax is focused on making their car seats as safe as possible, and designs them so they are fully loaded with best-in-class safety features that far exceed federal standards. They graciously sent me one of their Boulevard 70-G3 convertible car seats to test and review, and then are offering one as a giveaway to you!

When I received this car seat, I noticed it was a bit heavier than the past seat I used for Judah. To me, this is a good thing when considering a safer, more heavy-duty car seat. But, without even lifting or touching it, I could see in plain sight that this car seat leads the way in safety features.

Look at the sturdy sides of this seat! Approximately one in four of all motor vehicle crashes that involve children occur from side impact. The Boulevard 70-G3 features a rigid shell with deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing foam that provides Side Impact Protection.

This specific model also offers a second layer of protection with energy-absorbing True Side Impact Protection head restraint that keeps the head, neck and spine aligned.

You will also see the label “SafeCell Technology” a couple of times on this car seat. SafeCell Technology is SafeCells that are engineered to compress in a crash, reducing forward movement. You will find this technology in the base of the car seat, significantly lowering the center of gravity in a crash and counteracting forward rotation of the seat. And, it is also integrated into the BRITAX HUGS Chest Pads, reducing forward movement on impact.

Safety matters when it comes to car seats. I want one that will protect my child. And Britax convertible car seats have so many safety features — and knowing that makes me feel like my child is safe while in the car. Click here to learn more about Britax safety features.

  1. Choosing a car seat is so difficult! Head and side impact protection are two things I definitely look for in a car seat.

  2. Nicole Vosburgh says:

    I always make sure there is a 5-point harness when car seat shopping.

  3. Thank you for reviewing this. I have been looking into convertible car seats as we will migrate to one soon 🙂

  4. This would be a great seat!

  5. Thank you for doing this! I adore Britax and have been hoping there would be a chance to win one! We have a carseat for my car but it’s not my favorite and Ive been looking for a different brand to use in my hubbys car! With your review and all that Ive seen on Britax I think this could be it! Fingers Crossed!

  6. Love the side impact protection! Hate to think about my baby being in an accident, but would be worse to have it happen and NOT have thought about safety!

  7. We love the 5 point harness and how easy it is to install the car seat, which makes us feel safe with it in the car.

  8. I look for side impact protection, a 5 point safety harness and a higher weight limit.

  9. Amanda Wright says:

    I love that you do not have to rethread the harness as the baby grows. No way to mess it up. I also feel safety ratings are the most important thing when choosing a carseat.

  10. I look for a high weight limit while rear facing

  11. I look at ratings and reviews, but I’m looking at side impact and Britax really has the best protection available. I’d LOVE to win one of these.

  12. Most importantly I look for extended weight/height limits for rear-facing and 5-point harnessing.

  13. Side impact protection!

  14. I like to see a higher weight limit for rear facing use

  15. I would look for the safest overall car seat plus ease of use. I have always heard that Britax is the way to go for safety even if they are a little bit more pricey than other brands.

  20. I look for side impact protection and 5 point harness in carseats. Shopping for new carseats in the very near future!

  21. I always looked for the 5 point harness system.

  22. 5 point harness and side impact protection are key. Hope I win! We’re needing to buy a front facing seat for my little guy, but money is tight and I really don’t want to skimp on safety just because we can’t afford it. This would be an amazing blessing if we won this seat!!!

  23. I love Britax car seats. My 5 yr old has the previous version of this one and I would love to win one for my 2 month old!!

  40. Cassandra Eastman says:

    I look for easy to adjust straps, and high weight limits as well!

  41. with so many choices it is definitely hard to decide which is best I look for safety ratings side-impactand best overall ratings

  42. I like security features of course first like how well made and secure the harness is, then the style or color

  43. 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!
