I remember driving home my first born from the hospital – we were in the back of my parents van who came to get us, and I was holding my breathe and telling my Dad to slow down – watch out for that car! Did you see the light?!
We as parents (especially new parents) want to make sure that we are doing everything that we can to protect our children from harms way – especially when in a vehicle.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every 33 seconds a child under the age of 13 is involved in a crash. Of those children ages 8 and under who died in a vehicle crash in 2014, 26% were not restrained by an age-appropriate device such as an infant seat, booster seat or seat belt.
WOW! Those are some heartbreaking numbers. Having proper seating and restraints for our little ones is so very important.
That is why we trust Britax brand carseats for our kids safety – from infant to young child.
Britax has the new Endeavours infant car seat is designed for safety and mobility. The anti-rebound bar reduces rebound rotation by up to 30% in the event of a crash. Easily and securely install the car seat with a base or without. The Click & Go system allows you to pair the car seat with any Britax single stroller for a customized travel system. Next-level Britax safety features protect your baby beyond federal standards—so you and your little one can relax and enjoy the ride.
