Now that our little girl has completely outgrown her infant car seat we have moved her up into a Britax Marathon 70 in the beautiful Azalea print.
In celebration of her moving into the new car seat which she will use for the next several years of her life, I am going to give one away to you guys too!
But before I get into all the fun giveaway stuff, I want to talk about the newest car seat recommendations for children, and why Britax is the leader in car seat safety!
Car seat safety is ever changing because of all the amazing research done annually to keep our kids safe. Let’s all take a moment and remember the time when kids weren’t in car seats or what our car seats actually looked like. SCARY!
So now… the new guidelines.
Let’s start with the newest recommendation that our children remain rear facing until a minimum of two years old. No longer should we be turning them around when they reach their first birthday. And while the laws across the states may remain at one year of age, they may change in the upcoming year with this recommendation.
If two isn’t the magic age for you and your infant they recommend they are not turned to forward facing until the child is a minimum of 20 pounds. The report from the April issue of Pediatrics also reports that children who are rear facing are 75% less likely to be seriously injured in a car accident when compared to children of the same age who are forward facing!
Now onto some great details of the Britax Marathon 70 which you can win!
The Marathon 70 is an awesome car seat that you can use forward and rear facing. So once your baby grows out of their infant car seat, which Addison did around the time of her helmet, and let me tell you, being in the infant car seat her helmet barely fit and she was pissed, they can migrate right into this car seat until they hit 70 pounds. YES! 7-0!
Basically, until you are moving your child into a booster seat, they can stay in this safe, 5-point restraint car seat which is one of the best on the market. My favorite feature of all!
Now it is your turn to win one!
Remember before you enter to win… this is a giveaway for the Azalea print!
