The seat fabric is a night ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 1 – Britax Frontier 85

This past March, I got to leave Sheri and the kids for a couple of days to visit Britax at their headquarters in North Carolina. Personally, I love it when our manufacturers’ values align with ours – and I was really impressed to see firsthand how much Britax really strives to make life more convenient for parents.
