Remember me? The over-obsessive mom who researches everything to distraction and then some when it comes to her little Buttercup?
Yeah, well, if you thought the Great Stroller Incident of 2007 was a hoot, I can't even begin to explain to you the mental anguish my car seat search caused my husband. And my neighbor. Oh, and the dentist, too.
I must have started looking for a convertible seat when Buttercup was probably 10 pounds. Not cuz I thought I needed it then, mind you, but because I know me and realized that this was not going to be an overnight decision.
So many seats! But one kept coming back and sneaking into my mommy-dreams of Things I Want for Buttercup, and that was a Britax convertible car seat.
And thanks to the good people at Baby Car Seats, that's exactly what we got: a beautiful and sturdy and safe Britax Boulevard in the ever-girly Shannon Purple and Yellow.
Cost and features factor in big, and The Boulevard from Britax comes in on top. With a variety of comfort and safety features designed to keep your child happy, safe, and secure, the Boulevard is made to accommodate a child from the infancy stages all the way to 65 pounds and a standing height of 49 inches or less.
Not sure how long this will take us with our little stretch baby, but every penny on this bad boy is worth the $309.99 after you consider the many features, including the infinite head pad and harness-height adjustment, belly pad for comfort, removable , washable cover, flexible buckle LATCH system, one-hand recline adjustment, and tangle free, polyester five-point-harness.
The Boulevard also features the patented HUGS (Harness Ultra Guard) system, true-side impact protection, and is certified for air travel, too.
I'd also like to note that the Boulevard is easy to install, but H-U-G-E (fits great in our Jeep Cherokee!)so it's not exactly the best buy for lugging in and out of different cars. (That's why you buy a second car seat for your needs.) But if you are planning to park it in your back seat for the time being, you and your tot will be comfortable for the foreseeable future.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that the optional car seat covers are a MUST! Not only do they offer peace of mind for unexpected spills and accidents, it also can update the look of your seat for the next baby!
