LIVE Child Passenger Safety Certification Class with Essentials by Britax GIVEAWAY

Car Seat Misuse

Did you know that 3 out of 4 car seats are installed incorrectly, or not used properly?

Join us this Thursday afternoon (March 8, 2018) on our Baby Gizmo Facebook Page as we crash a local Child Passenger Safety Certification Class LIVE on Facebook. There will be an actual skills assessment test in progress when Baby Gizmo goes live.  Timing will depend on class progress, but we are anticipating a 3pm-ish ET start time.

We would love your online participation during our LIVE broadcast while a student takes the certification test, but the student will not be able to see the audience participation or that would be cheating.

A brand new Essentials by Britax convertible car seat will be up for grabs during the Live broadcast, so don’t miss out!

  13. We would love to win this since we have a new baby coming this July. I love the safety ratings and the video was so useful in seeing how to safely put a child in a car seat

  14. We could really use a new seat for our youngest, who is 2, as her current seat doesn’t have the best rear facing limits and we can’t afford another seat to keep her rear facing longer.

  15. As a foster parent, I use car seats over and over with multiple children until the car seat expires. I have 2 expiring this year. I could really use a replacement! Thank you for all the great information!

  16. I caught part of this live….very informative. My youngest granddaughter is ready to move out of the infant seat and into a convertible seat. We had Britax seats with my grandson….they are the best. Would love to win one for our little spunk muffin…..

  20. I would love to win. I like the two layer side protection and the straps look like they are easy to adjust!

  21. I’d love to win this for my almost 2 year old! We only have one vehicle, so only one car seat. But sometimes hubby takes car with car seat, and then things come up, we get invited to go somewhere, and can’t go because we don’t have an extra car seat! Just good to have as a back up.

  22. I’d love to win because ours are getting to the end and I want to make sure my son is in the safest seat possible.

  23. I would love to win because this looks like a great seat and we currently only have one carseat for two cars. It would be great to not have to move the seat every time kiddo goes with the other parent!

  24. I really love that Britax is a great brand that stands behind their products and the safety of the children who ride in it. These new lines will make families be able to afford a “safer” and more stylish car seat. I would love to own a Britax for my 4&2 year old.

  27. I need to upgrade my little ones carseat. His hand down, from one of my older children, is almost ready to expire. Would love to win a Britax seat!

  28. I have gone to car seats check when the people are not helpful. they just install the seat and do not talk to you about how. I am glad to see some seats are getting into the self-locks so i can avoid the turning od car seats in middle due to not being able to use latch and have to use a self-lock belt.

  29. Every one of the points you noted should be in the forefront of every parent/child caretaker. We all need to know the safety factors of child seats.

  32. Would love to win this! We have a britax boulevard70 that is going to expire in a couple months. We’ve had many different britax seats through the 18 years we’ve needed car seats for our 6 children….boulevard, boulevard70, monarch, regents–would love to keep my 2y/o RFing in a britax!

  33. I would love to win this amazing car seat because, it is true, Safe Enough is NOT good enough. I love that I can keep my child rear facing longer because of the weight limit and that it goes all the way to 65 lbs, it’ll definitely last and be worth it. I also, really love that it has the 2 forms of side impact protection because I am constantly worried about my babys safety as I’m sure all the lovely parents entering this giveaway are. This is an amazing giveaway paired with some truly incredibly helpful tips and knowledge to pass along to all of us whom did not know all there is to know about car seats and safety. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity, fingers crossed! Good luck everyone!

  34. Britax is the only choice for us, and our daughter has continually grown non stop since she was born! ????????

  35. I would like to win this, because my kiddo is about to outgrow his current seat rear facing and this would allow him to rear face til atleast 4 years old 🙂

  36. The new Essentials by Britax look very similar to the ones that were manufactured before ClickTight came onto the market. I used the Britax Advocate for my daughter and we loved it. Glad to see the Essentials by Britax have great features like the steel frame and the V shaped tether.

  37. After totaling my vehicle last year with my grandson and him coming out without a scratch in his Britax Advocate car seat, I will never own another brand of seat to protect my precious little ones. Expecting grand baby #2 in July and hoping for a new Britax for him. Being their primary daycare provider, it’s essential to have my own car seat.

  38. Would love to win because we send a britax car seat with all of our foster babies that go home. It would be so helpful for our next little ones.

  39. I would love to have a britax carseat. i know they are a safe carseat to use. i love watching the live video on facebook i learned some things i didnt know about!
