My 4 year old graduated to her NEW Britax Pioneer Seat. This is a forward facing seat good from 25-70lbs and 40lbs-110lbs Booster.
My daughter isn’t quite 40 lbs yet, she is actually only 33 lbs, and is ready to upgrade to a new car seat. I kept her rear facing for almost 3 years and switched her because I struggled with getting her in her seat sitting correctly to fasten the seatbelt where it needed to be. Well with a new baby we were ready to migrate her to a new seat since the baby will eventually take her other Britax Seat and we will have to switch it back to rear facing. If that confuses you…it is like musical chairs with car seats when your kids are 4 years apart!

My 4 year old has been in the same Britax seat from when she turned 1 and is still using it in my car. I went with a different company for my husband’s car seat and he hated it from the very beginning. So when we had another baby I knew that we wanted a Britax in his car and she would need to move up to a big girl seat.
She has been so EXCITED to have us install this in daddy’s car that she continually talked about it prior to installing the seat. What was she the MOST excited about?? The cup holders! FIGURES! Isn’t that what we look for when we buy a new car? Some people do. Daddy brought his new car home and we are VERY excited to install the new seat!
Safety is VERY important to me, so I KNEW I wanted her in a 5 point harness. This is only a booster based on where and how you put the seat belt. Plus, I wanted a brand I can trust and I really trust Britax. When picking out a car seat for her I always go and search brand safety reports and Britax always has one of the best reviews on safety!

Benefits of choosing a Britax:
–360 degree Protection: Includes side and frontal crashes.
- keeping your child in the vehicle,
- diverting crash forces away from your child,
- helping to slow down your child’s body,
- minimizing movement of your child, and
- protecting your child’s brain and spinal cord.
–Fit and comfortable: It has an option to recline if you wish to do so and use it as a harness OR booster based on what your needs are at the time of using the seat.
–Easy to use: the latch system is my favorite, easy removable covers, and sweet support online if you need help.
Disclaimer: I was provided this Britax Car Seat for REVIEW. If I wasn’t brand loyal, I would not have accepted this review. My daughters are the most important things in my life besides God and my husband! I am in charge of keeping them the safest and I wouldn’t ever trust her in just any car seat. All opinions are my own.
