Child Passenger Safety Tips + GIVEAWAY


Giveaway Closed!
Congrats to our winners – Bri Black and her friend Valerie Bailey

During my visit to the Britax headquarters on Monday, I had the chance to interview Sarah Tilton, Britax‘s Child Passenger Safety Technician, to talk about important tips on car seat safety. While our Baby Gizmo Child Passenger Safety Best Practice Tips video from a couple of years ago starring many of our celebrity friends is still one of my favorites, it’s never a bad idea to keep re-visiting car seat safety, especially during Child Passenger Safety Awareness Week.

Let’s get a quick 20 tip lesson from our celebrity friends! This is an oldie but a goodie!

Improper use of car seats is a serious epidemic in this country. It seems like every day we see it – a child riding on a lap, a toddler in a booster seat too soon, twisted straps, the chest clip in the wrong place, forward-facing babies who should be rear-facing, expired car seats from the 90s…the list goes on and on.

As one of the leaders in the world of baby gear resources, we feel it is our duty to help spread the word about Child Passenger Safety Week (September 15-21). The devastating fact that three out of four child safety seats are improperly installed in vehicles (according to research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) should have us all sit up and take notice.

Take a peek at Sarah Tilton’s car seat safety tips in this Baby Gizmo video that was shot this week at the Britax headquarters.

Now that we did the education part of the article, it’s time to get to a giveaway! That’s right, it just doesn’t seem right to have CPS Week and NOT giveaway a car seat! But that isn’t what we are doing today! We are taking it a step further and giving away TWO car seats!

Not only are we giving away one of the new Britax ClickTight Boulevard Convertible Car Seats but the winner’s friend is getting one too! That’s right – if YOU win, your friend also wins! Here’s how it works:

1) Enter the giveaway below.

2) For the second entry option, you need to tell us which of your friends should win a Britax ClickTight Boulevard Car Seat too!

3) Tell all your friends about the giveaway! EVERYONE! When they enter, insist that they use your name as the giveaway referral so that IF they win, you WIN too!

4) The only catch is that if you win, the friend that you list as your giveaway referral MUST have entered the giveaway in order to win the second car seat.
