Welcome to the Britax Pioneer 70
Car Seat Giveaway!
Thanks to Britax for sponsoring this wonderful giveaway and our host, Everything Mommyhood, as well as our fabulous co-hosts, Green Grandma, Mew Review, Military Wives Saving, Spit Up is the New Black, Faith Filled Footsteps, Downshifting PRO, and Coupon Spice, and a handful of other bloggers for helping promote.
If you've been following this blog for long, you know I am passionate about car seat safety. That's why I featured a weekly series written by Megan Arce, a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician. You can read the posts here.
I'm also a believer in keeping your child rear-facing for as long as possible. My own grandson, Lincoln, is still rear-facing at three, and he's quite comfortable doing so (not to mention safe).
"A 2007 study in the journal Injury Prevention found that children under age two are 75 percent less likely to die or to be severely injured in a crash if they are rear-facing. Another study found riding rear-facing to be five times safer than forward-facing." -- Parenting.com
So, while the forward facing Britax Pioneer 70 has recommendations for ages two and up, I encourage you to wait a bit longer to forward face your little one. The great thing about this car seat is that it also is a booster, so it will serve you well for years.
Britax is a well know brand for making top of the line car seats with your child's safety in mind. Britax car seats are easy to install, a breeze to use and they offer great protection for your precious cargo. They have car seats that will keep your child safe from birth all the way up until a booster is no longer needed. If you are questioning what type of seat would be best for your little one, check out Everything Mommyhood's Car Seat Safety. Everything Mommyhood also reviewed this newly debuted, just in July 2013, car seat, check out her Britax Pioneer 70 Review.
As I mentioned, the Britax Pioneer 70 is a forward facing only car seat that is also a booster. The minimum requirements are two years, 25 lbs., 30 inches to be able to use this seat forward facing, and harnessed (Make sure your child is at least two before forward facing, as now recommended by the AAP). You can then use this seat as a seat belt positioning booster, as long as your child is 40 lbs. and 45 inches, all the way up until 59 inches tall and 110 lbs.
The Britax Pioneer 70 is available in seven different prints, six of which are pictured above. Not pictured is "Congo," which is a solid red print. The MSRP of the Britax Pioneer 70 is $229.99 and it is sold at mass retailers such as Target, Babies R Us, and Amazon.
Britax is generously awarding one lucky reader their very own Britax Pioneer 70 in their choice of print, valued at $229.99!
