I love Britax car seats, and I’m not sure I’ll ever use another brand. I recently got the chance to check out the Britax Boulevard cat seat and I am happy to say it’s fabulous! Click here to read my review of the Boulevard’s "little" sister the Diplomat.

My biggest concern with the Boulevard (and even the Diplomat) was that the deep side wings that cushion the child’s head would block my child’s view and in turn make her cranky. But, my concerns went out the window when I read what they do: "The Britax Boulevardcar seat features True Side Impact Protection™ with deep side walls andhead support to provide advanced protection in side impact collisions." And I’m even happier to report that my child doesn’t mind them one bit. She simply leans a bit farther forward to see around them!

I love, love, LOVE this seat! First of all the Shannon "fashion" print is stunning and looks great against my tan leather interior. The purple accents are so soft and plush and look great against the soft, yellow floral print. My favorite feature is how you can adjust the harness strap height simply by turning a knob. Not having to uninstall and reinstall the seat is a HUGE time saver!

I can’t rave enough about this seat and the biggest reason I love it, is I know how safe it is! Remember, Britax has many optionsfor carseats, from infant carriers to booster seats.
