In the realm of baby bests, Britax is practically synonymous with car seat. The Britax Boulevard Car Seat 2010 is Britax's top of the line car seat - the best of the best. And fittingly, it is comfortable, effective and easy to use. The Boulevard accommodates infants from 5 to 33 pounds in the rear-facing position and children at least one-year-old who weigh up to 65 pounds in the forward-facing position. This allows you to invest in a car seat just once from birth to booster. Really!
The Boulevard has a superb silhouette, giving kids support where they need it, but without unnecessarily restricting movement. The deep, side wings of the reinforced headrest are lined with EPS foam and offer Total Side Impact Protection™, providing a comfy, stable ride devoid of slumping heads.
The biggest improvement on ease-of-use over Britax's other models is the knob that allows you to adjust the shoulder straps of the 5-point harness. With the Boulevard, you no longer need to uninstall the seat to change the shoulder strap heights. So, whether your child has had a growth spurt, or is bundled in a bulky parka for winter, you can easily adjust for fit. This convenience alone makes the seat worth the price. Like many Britax models, the Boulevard is large, so be sure to measure your car's interior before making your purchase.
Spilling the Beans: The safety reinforcements on this seat may make it a tad trickier to insert your little one, but we think the increased safety and comfort these features provide make it well worth the extra minute of maneuvering. Also, installing a car seat base is not a skill that comes naturally. Please visit a certified inspection station to learn about proper installation and to verify that your base is installed securely and correctly.

This is the cadillac, or maybe since it's British I should say Rolls Royce, of strollers. The comfort level is amazing -- it adjusts to fit small children and I don't know WHEN my toddler will grow out of his -- he'll be in 4th grade, probably! It's relatively easy to install, especially if you have Latch in your car. I think the side impact protection is so important, especially since I now have two children and have to put the car seats next to either door in the back. I have just put my 8-month old in the slightly smaller version of this seat, the Diplomat, and it's easier to fit rear-facing than the Boulevard. If you have a sedan you might consider this one as an alternative because the height of the Boulevard is pretty tall when it's rear-facing.
The fabric cleans up pretty darn well, and like I said, it's SOOO plush! I love how you can wrap the straps around the side inserts to keep them out of the way when your child is getting in and out.
The safety record of this seat is just the best - buying a Britax convertible car seat is a no-brainer!
