If you’ve got little ones, you know how much gear you need, whether you’re planning a walk around the block or a road trip. And it’s not just any gear, you’re always thinking about cost, size, durability, safety, ease of use, and more. Here are some solid options to consider—we’re confident that you’ll find them useful.
DualFit Harness-2-Booster seat (Britax)
One of the first and most important things to decide on is a car seat. And this seat from Britax is a safe, solid, and reasonably priced option for when your baby outgrows his or her carrier “snap-and-go” seat. It easily transitions from a three-point harness seat (that accommodates kids from 25 – 65 pounds) to a booster (that goes up to 100 pounds), so the seat will grow right along with your child. According to the company, Britax’s “patented system of safety components work together to transfer energy away from your child and 2 layers of Side Impact Protection shield your child in the event of a crash.” With it’s easy-on and easy-off lower connectors that lock into place with a click and are released with the push of a button, installation (and removal) is a breeze. About $170. This one and many other are available at https://us.britax.com
