A car seat is perhaps one of the most challenging products for a family to buy—when it comes to safety while on the road, you definitely want what’s best for your babe.
While all new car seats on the market have passed safety testing requirements, a few companies make their goal to exceed the standards, not simply meet them, and Britax is one of those companies. (To read more about their safety testing procedures, click here.)
For infant use through the toddler years, the Boulevard CS is a fantastic buy. Your little one can use this seat from birth (if he weighs 5 lbs. or more) all the way until he hits the 65 lb. mark. He’ll ride facing backwards until 35 lbs. and then turn around and face forward—and the 65 lb. weight limit keeps him in a 5-point harness longer than some other seats would. The Boulevard CS includes reassuring safety features, such as True Side Impact Protection, EPS energy-absorbing foam, and Britax’s patented HUGS system, which reduces forward head movement in the event of a crash and gently cushions baby’s head and chest. It also introduces the Click & Safe snug harness indicator that gives an audible clicking sound to let parents know when the harness straps are snug.
Baby will appreciate the plush comfort of the seat; mom and dad will appreciate the washable cover, the tangle-free 5-point harness, and a quick-adjust headrest and harness. To read full details on the Boulevard CS, check out Britax’s site.
