GIVEAWAY: Win a Britax BEST BET Car Seat this Holiday Season #BritaxBestBet

Disclosure: As a Britax Latina Blogger/Advisory Board Member (and in partnership with Mami Innovative Media), this post is part of a sponsored outreach. All opinions expressed are my own.

As parents, it’s a given that we all want what’s best for our kids.  You want them to eat healthy, go to a good school and, above all else, we want our kids to be safe. My four-year-old is a big kid, and putting him in the right booster seat was important to me – but it is so hard to choose which seat would be best for him.  Lucky for us, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), wants our kids to be safe too, and they’ve released a “Best Bet” booster seat category letting parents know which car seat choice would likely be their…well…best bet.

A record 27 new boosters earn highest IIHS rating

I have long been an advocate of Britax products, and I am super-proud to report that every Britax Harness-2-Booster seat earned a “BEST BET”, the top rating from the IIHS.  IIHS reviewed and rated three Britax seats — the Pinnacle™ ClickTight, Frontier™ ClickTight and Pioneer™ combination Harness-2-Booster seats— along with 41 other new for 2014 seats from various other manufacturers.  In fact, we even own a Britax Frontier and we love it – even more so now that we know that it’s one of the safest out there!

Britax Frontier 90

The IIHS rated the Britax Harness-2-Booster seats as “BEST BETs,” along with Britax’s belt-positioning booster seats, because in almost any car, minivan or SUV, they correctly position lap and shoulder belts on typical 4-to-8-year-olds.  And, as a mom of a beautiful 4-year-old boy, that means a lot to me.

Some of my favorite features of these “Best Bet” car seats include:

  • ClickTight Installation System makes car seat installation as simple as buckling a seat belt so that now everyone can install with REAL confidence in just a few easy steps.
  • True Side Impact Protection provides deep side walls and a head restraint with energy-absorbing EPP foam to distribute crash forces, shield from vehicle intrusion, and contain the head, neck and body while keeping them “in true” or aligned.
  • Base with SafeCell Technology designed to keep your child safe and secure in a crash by compressing and significantly lowering the center of gravity, reducing the forward movement of the car seat

Now, on to the good stuff…
