Britax: A leader in safety and innovation, Britax prides themselves on their secure American-made car seats. Their ClickTight system provides easy and safe seat belt installation.
-Britax Marathon: Your child will be surrounded safely with SafeCell Impact Protection that provides a deep energy-absorbing shell.
-Britax Boulevard: This model has extra side impact protection that’s great for collision safety and nap-friendly cushioning.
-Britax Advocate (not shown): This sturdy convertible car seat features three layers of side impact protection, an impact-absorbing base, and steel frame for extra peace of mind.

Nuna: A beloved brand at Magic Beans, Nuna couples innovative design with a sleek and stylish look.
-Nuna Rava: Nuna’s “true tension” door system provides ultra secure and easy installation, and Side Impact Protection features pods made of energy-absorbing foam. Also, you can comfortably place a child rear-facing for up to 50 pounds!

Peg Perego: This Italian-made brand uses the best materials to keep your child safe and comfortable.

Berenice Calderon says:

would you recommend the graco forever convertible car seat?

Y Y says:

we are looking between britax advocate and clek foonf. we don’t need to move the carseat once it’s installed, and our car is very roomy in the back, we want a very safe carseat, and hope the carseat material to be breathable, which one is better?

Katherine Elizabeth Trotter says:

I was debating between the Britax Advocate and the Chicco NextFit Zip Air (primarily for conveniences—zip off washable and breathable fabric), and now after watching this video I’m even more confused! I simply want the safest possible carseat that is easy to wash, has a cupholder, and preferred lighter/breathable fabric….but none of those conveniences matter as much as safety. What would you purchase for your first born? He’s outgrown his UppaBaby Mesa, but is still on the smaller side. I have a larger car (Honda Pilot Elite), so the bulk of the larger seats isn’t an issue.

JoAnn Farrell says:

I keep reading the the crotch strap on the Britax is too short. I am looking at one, but am worried my taller 3yr old grandaughter wouldn’t be comfortable in it. Have you heard of problems with it? I called Britax and they do not sell a longer strap. They suggested the side/hip strap be adjusted, but that won’t help a bothersome buckle that is too short.

ItsMoore2Life says:

Have you reviewed or can you graco extend2fit and graco milestone! They are both convertible car seats

Jamye Alexandra says:

I noticed that you don’t carry Maxi-Cosi, any reason why?

Rea O'Leary says:

In the Nuna and Britax with their seatbelt installs for rear facing, is it the same belt path? It looks to be the same belt path as the forward facing.

Rea O'Leary says:

no one ever mentions the Diono Safe Stop attachment

Rin Lin says:

In your opinion is the Nuna Rava the best convertible car seat out there?

Memillerwright says:

Do you sell a 2017 Britax? I like the click system of it and the Nuna.

Ussiel Sanchez Leyva says:

Hey guy’s Thanks for this video, I need help. I have a Fiat 500 and as u know it’s small on the back of the car… Really small. Which car seat do you recommend? Can’t wait to read your comments. Thanks

Keisha Clements says:

Would you be able to do a car seat comparison between the doino rxt and the Nuna rava??

Patricia Brown says:

I’m actually looking for a convertible car seat because my little one will soon be growing out of her cybex cloud q….I’m debating with maxi cosi and the nuna. Which one is highly recommend?

kelly bosch says:

Yes we are dreading our 10 month old outgrowing her Mesa, we all love it! We already purchased an advocate, but will need a 2nd car seat for 2nd vehicle. So my question is…is the higher price worth the advocate, should we get the boulevard?

Michelle Davis says:

we love our Cybex infant car seat do they make a convertible for using in the USA? and what do you think about the Chico’s convertible? thank you
