Britax Decathlon Convertible Car Seat

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

When it comes to choosing a child car seat there are many car seats on the market. Some can be cheap while other can be more expensive.  For us when it comes to our children’s safety cost is not a factor.  Normally you would buy a car seat for newborns as they grow you would buy one for toddlers and then a booster seat.  In total that is three different car seats.

Britax has come up with a brilliant design in the Decathlon Convertible Car Seat which is for newborns from 5 lbs. all the way to children up to 65 lbs.  Newborns should always be facing to the rear of the vehicle this protects their neck should a sudden stop occur.  In the backward facing position the Decathlon Convertible Car Seat is rated for 5 lbs to 33 lbs.  In the forward facing position (usually just over one year of age) they are rated for up to 65 lbs.

The Britax Decathlon Convertible Car Seat is made with comfort foam as well as EPS protective foam.  The tangle-free 5 point harness push button harness makes it a breeze to get your child in and out of the seat and it has a removable and washable seat cover for those milk spills.

When installing a car seat, one should be sure that it is properly installed for a nice snug fit.  The car seat should not have any movement forward or side to side.

For style, comfort, safety and convenience, if I have to purchase another car seat for a new baby I would recommend the Britax decathlon convertible car seat.

That Baby Scent

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

So you are having your first child, there is nothing more joyous nor more precious in the world than having your first bundle of joy. My wife and I had three, a boy and two girls and let me tell you there is nothing more miraculous in this world.

Ever notice a newborn baby’s scent? They smell so fresh, so clean and so innocent. Their hands and feet are so tiny, skin so soft and delicate. When it came time to bathing our children there was only one name we trusted and that was Johnson’s. Johnson’s baby moisturizing lotion is gentle, smooth, rich and creamy and helps keep a new borns skin nourished, soft and protected.

We would place our newborn child in a baby washing basin with warm water, always being extra careful with their neck and head. First washed their hair with Johnson’s moisture care baby wash, it is gentle on eyes and then lathered them up. Rinsed them off and wrapped them in a soft towel. We would dry him or her off and dress them in those cute little outfits. Fed them their formula, as we would hold and smother them with lots of love and kisses.  It was quiet time for the next two hours.

Johnson’s is a well known household name in our home and when it came to child care products for our children we trusted the Johnson name and so should you.
