Britax Baby Carrier *Giveaway*!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

Britax is well known for their carseats, boosters and strollers but did you know they also make baby carriers? As a parent & Child Passenger Safety Technician-Instructor, I certainly appreciate all the fabulous carseats we have available on the market today but carseats are designed for use in the car. And babies are designed to be held close by a loving parent or caregiver. Let’s be honest – in our society right now babies are spending waaaay too much time in their infant “bucket” seats. It’s almost as if we’ve forgotten how to hold and carry our babies!

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the convenience that an infant carseat provides but consider how many hours the average American infant spends in his or her infant carseat. First, there is all the time spent in the carseat in the vehicle, then all the time spent in the carseat when used with the stroller (aka the “travel system”), now add in the time spent in the carseat when at the grocery store (and on that note – please NEVER perch your infant carseat on the top of the shopping cart), now add in the time spent in the carseat finishing a nap on the living room floor, etc. It really starts to add up! Look, no one is suggesting that you shouldn’t allow baby to finish his/her nap in the carseat but try to make a concerted effort to limit the amount of time that baby spends in the infant carseat each day. As a practical alternative, use a sling or soft baby carrier when you’re out and about!

The contest is now closed. Thanks for participating!

Thanks to our generous friends at Britax we’re giving away one Britax Baby Carrier! There’s a story behind this but I know you care less about the story and more about the giveaway so I’ll make it brief. At the ABC Expo the clever and creative marketing peeps at Britax had this entertaining “win a Britax product” wheel at their booth and we had a chance to spin the wheel and win whatever product or accessory it landed on. We tried to convince them that we should get 3 spins since Darren, Heather & I were all present but they didn’t go for it. Lol! I had the honor of spinning for Team CSB (and for our readers!) and I won the Britax Baby Carrier which is actually a really nice prize even though I didn’t know much about the product at the time. I’ve enlightened myself since then and here’s what I can tell you…
