We transitioned into The Britax Boulevard ClickTight ARB Convertible car seat when my daughter was 19 months. This car seat reminds me of a 1st class seat on an airplane in the best possible way. It looks super luxurious and comfortable. My girl has more space and you can use it rear and forward facing. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all infants and toddlers should ride in a Rear-Facing Car Seat until they are 2 years of age or until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their car seat manufacturer. BRITAX strongly recommends that children ride rear facing to the highest weight or height specified. We plan on doing just that.
The Britax Boulevard ClickTight ARB is easy to install in 3 steps. This is a huge deal for parents, there are no more latches. You install with the seat belt with the new ClickTight Installation System. In addition to the seat coming with 2 layers of side impact protection, they now have added an Anti-Rebound Bar which stabilizes the car seat in the event of a crash. This is to be used when rear-facing. The feature that I love is the Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator. It lets you know when the harness is secure on your child with a click. I also love the wide straps and the buckle.
I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to take apart and clean this car seat. I had finally decided I was not going to sit in the back seat with my daughter anymore. The very 1st time I sat in with front with my husband (which felt so freeing), my daughter vomited in the car for the 1st time and all over the car seat. My poor baby was ok, but the stench was horrible. My husband was ready to throw out the car seat and get a new one. I reminded him that this happens all the time with kids, and there must be a way to clean and get the smell out. I immediately grabbed whatever loose pieces I could and doused them in water and vinegar. I then decided to read the manual and was happy to discover details and pictures of how every piece can be removed and cleaned! There are also some great videos you can find online. We successfully removed and cleaned every piece, got the stink out and was also able to easily put it all back together. Throw up in the car has to be the worst. I can’t begin to tell you the feeling of relief when it was done and actually clean. Because every piece was removable we were easily able to get it back to looking and smelling like new.
The Britax Boulevard ClickTight ARB Convertible car seat is sleek looking and comes in a few patterns. You can adjust the height easily, install and clean easily. It’s a winner in my book.
Thank you Britax for providing the Britax Boulevard ClickTight ARB to The Pregnant New Yorker
