I was recently asked by a new Mother-to-be, what carseat I would considered top in safety and used for my kids? Without hesitation, I recommended a Britax. I will be honest and say if I would have been asked 3 years ago or so, I probably would have spit out a few options, but when I reviewed the Britax Frontier I was instantly in love.
The Britax Frontier is however geared toward older children, at least 2 years in age and weighing 25 to 85lbs. For new Moms or Moms looking to transition from an infant carrier to a convertible car seat, Britax has an amazing new line of Britax G3 car seats - like the Britax Marathon 70 G3.
Britax convertible car seats can be used rear facing from 5 to 40 pounds and forward facing from 1 year and 20 pounds, up to 70 pounds, depending on the seat. High-capacity convertibles allow your child to stay in a five-point harness through the toddler years.
The G3 line offers features such as:
- True side impact protection that helps keep the head and neck aligned in the event of an accident
- SafeCell technology designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the front seat
- Tangle-Free, Five-Point Harness featuring E-Z Buckle
- Staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat
And this is just the beginning of the multiple safety features found on Britax G3 models and more.
My daughter is still in her Britax Frontier and will be some time. It gets almost daily use and looks, as well as protects, just like the day it was installed.
If your looking for an infant carrier, convertible or booster and haven’t thought about a Britax, I recommend taking a look at their different models and comparing features - and comparing features with similar brand models. A car seat is an important purchase, make sure you find a seat that gives you piece of mind. And don’t forget to have a professional check installation. After two kids, I was still installing my car seats wrong and would have never known otherwise.
