Car crashes remain the leading cause of death for children 1-13 years old in the United States, but many times these tragedies can be prevented by the proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts. Child Passenger Safety Week is the perfect time to inspect your car seat and make sure you’re restraining your child in the correct seat, and that the seat is installed properly.
Britax has been an industry leader in mobile safety for over 70 years and has a full line of innovative infant car seats, convertible child seats, harness to booster child seats, and belt-positioning booster child seats to keep our little ones safe.
Ruth from Viva Veltoro had the opportunity to review one of Britax’s convertible child seats, the Boulevard 70-G3. You can read her full review of this awesome car seat HERE.
Here is information about the Boulevard 70-G3 from the Britax website:
