I've heard so many people swear they'll NEVER let their kids eat in the car...but that's BEFORE they have kids! Keeping those goldfish crackers and chicken nuggets out of your car is definitely much easier said than done. In fact, right now, my little boy eats in my car two or three times a week. We recently moved but we didn't move him to a new preschool because we LOVE the preschool he goes to, so that means I drive him to a preschool that is 30 minutes away three times a week! And since preschool starts at 12:30, we leave our house at noon and he usually eats lunch on the way to school. So you can imagine that my car is a bit of a mess lately!
I really need to bring his car seat inside, take it apart, clean out all the crumbs, and wash the cover. But we have been so busy, I just haven't had the time! I know I'm not the only mom who is struggling to keep her kiddos' car seat clean!
Whether your little ones eat in the car because you have a busy schedule driving kids to different extracurricular activities, you have a child who gets carsick, or you have a little one who is potty training, we all have car seat messes that need to be cleaned up now and again...or everyday!
I often wish that my car seat had an extra cover so I didn't have to wait for it to wash and dry before putting the car seat back in my car because it's so hard to be without a car seat even for a day! So how nice would it be to have a car seat cover that's made out of a fabric that resists stains, moisture, and odor, and that is super easy to wipe clean? Well, my absolute favorite car seat manufacturer, Britax, has created exactly that!
I'm really excited to tell you about the new Britax Boulevard ClickTight Car Seat with Anti-Rebound Bar and made out of the new Nanotex fabric!
Nanotex fabric is a premium, luxurious fabric with a nanotechnology that is stain-resistant and easy to maintain. It repels spills, resists water absorption, dries quickly, and is very easy to spot clean! Nanotex is safe for your baby’s skin because it is free of PFOS, PFOA, heavy metals, phenols, phthalates, odor, and skin sanitizers. It also features silver-ion technology, keeping it clean and odor-free. And when you do need to clean it, the cover is very easy to remove, and you don't even need to remove the harness to do so!
I also LOVE how easy it is to adjust the height of the harness. Instead of unhooking the straps and rethreading them through the back of the seat, you simply have to squeeze the handle at the top of the seat to adjust the height. This makes it so easy to adjust the seat when your child grows, or to even adjust the height for a smaller or larger child than usually rides in the seat.
A few months ago, my niece (who is two years younger than my son) unexpectedly needed to come with me to run a quick errand, and I was so glad I could quickly and easily adjust his car seat to fit her much smaller body and be confident knowing she would be safe while she was with me!
And since the weight capacity of this car seat is so wide (the rear-facing weight capacity is 5-40 pounds, the forward-facing weight capacity is 20-65 pounds), you can confidently and safely have children of all sizes ride in your car.
I'm SUPER picky about the car seats I buy for our little boy, and I love that Britax is consistently rated as one of the top car seat brands on the market for safety! More than anything, I love the ClickTight installation system available in Britax car seats!
Along with multiple layers of side impact protection, a steel reinforced frame, and an anti-rebound bar, ClickTight helps keep your kiddo super safe! Three out of four car seats are installed incorrectly, placing children at risk of being seriously injured in a car accident. But with the ClickTight installation system, installing your child's car seat is seriously as easy as buckling a seatbelt, and with an extremely simple and secure installation, you can feel confident that your child's car seat is installed correctly EVERY time!

I've always LOVED Britax car seats, and I'm super excited about the new Nanotex fabric! I'm almost ready to move my little boy out of his Britax Boulevard ClickTight Car Seat, and because I've loved our other Britax car seats, I will definitely be buying the Britax Frontier ClickTight Booster Car Seat! I'm really excited about this new Nanotex fabric and excited to see it on all of my favorite Britax products. And I'm really glad preschool will be ending in a couple weeks, so we won't have as many messes in my car...hopefully! :)Featured Header Image PC: Britax
