As technological advances zoom forward over the course of our lifetime, every familiar product is transformed into something sleeker, more efficient, and more effective: for instance, could we have imagined in 1990 what the humble telephone would turn into? I’m still kind of amazed. Ironically, I almost never actually use my phone to call anyone (I prefer texting), but today ... Read More »

Becoming a trusted name in baby gear is an incremental process, built up car seat by car seat, stroller by stroller. Britax’s stellar reputation has slowly stacked up through car seats sold, through word of mouth, and, most importantly, through kids protected.
