B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat Review (Britax)

B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat
What It Is

The Britax B-Safe 35 is an infant car seat featuring an increased weight limit of 35 pounds. It is recommended to keep babies rear facing for as long as possible and this increased weight limit helps. The safe-cell impact-stabilizing steel frame keeps baby safe in case of impact in an accident. The design is compact and sleek, removable head pillow ensures newborns are supported, the canopy is generous to protect babies from sun and rain, level indicators ensure proper installation angle, and the handle is curved for carrying comfort. It is certified for aircraft travel. This infant car seat also features the Click & Go System, which secures this to any Britax stroller. The release for the car seat is at the top of the seat and not on the side, which makes getting in and out of the car easy.
