Riding Safe Con Britax

Sponsored Post Disclosure: This is a sponsored post as a Safe Con Britax Member and Blogger. As always, all opinions, ideas, and stories stated here are clearly my own.

Thanks to Britax for hosting myself and my fellow Safe Con Britax members at their new headquarters.
Last year, we visited and toured the old headquarters.  (If you missed it, here is my post Britax-Latina Advisory Launching Event.)  My daughter was only 5 months when I made this trip and I learned so much about how Britax was helping keep my daughter safe in our vehicle.  She is now 20 months, getting into everything, and starting to test the waters of terrible 2's.  But one thing has not changed, she is still riding safe in her Britax Advocate 70-G3.  Britax continues to look for ways of making their product safer for our kids.  They also look for ways of making their products better - better and easier to use.

Have you ever tried to install a car seat?  How hard was it?  I remember it use to be so hard.  Britax car seats have LATCH connectors that make installing a car easy as pushing a button.  They are also equipped with a tethering system that minimizes and reduces crash force in case of an accident.  Britax now has the ClickTight Installation System.

Britax ClickTight is so easy to use and install.  The car seat is not moving or going anywhere.  How safe is your car seat installed?  Did you know about all this?  I did not.  But now I do and am sharing it with you.  See that is the main reason I am glad that I am a part of the Safe Con Britax group of mommy bloggers.
I get to learn and then pass this knowledge on to you.  I want all of our babies to be safe.  I know my Lil Bit is riding Safe con Britax (safe with Britax) every time she is safely buckled in her car seat.
I am a mother of 2 and it scares me to think how many babies are not riding safe everyday.  I can sleep better at night knowing that the technology that Britax is using and has placed in all their products will continue to keep my Lil Bit safe everyday.

 When you installed your car seat, what was the hardest part?  Did you have a hard time?  What system does your car seat have?

If I would have had to do it alone I would have panicked! Thankfully the hospital my munchkin was born at had classes available and we practiced and they even installed my car seat on my vehicle before my son was born so that when it was time he would already have a place to ride in home from the hospital. You can call them and check back about reviewing how your car seat is installed thankfully since weve had to upgrade since then. great info!

my husband and I went to the fire station with our first newborn. We were so panicked that we couldn't do it correctly. Three kids in my husband and I have perfected carseat instillation. One of us sits in it (practically to get the seat belt as perfect/tight as possible

I am always unsure about installing a car seat. I usually take it to the hospital in my town to have it installed. I believe the fire station offers to install it too.

I don't have children, though I've buckled up plenty of lovely babies. I'm no expert and have some funny stories to share with trying to install some, buckle up, take out and back in!
