green gift guide: optimized cable company {for dads & gamers}

One month ago my husband and I were going through some boxes we hadn’t unpacked from our move and we came across “the bag”.

They are truly as safe as they can be, especially when it comes to taking care of little heads.

I don’t want to sound like Debbie Downer over the holidays, but head injury in car crashes is the leading cause of death in children aged 0-12. So, knowing this, Britax completely re-designed their entire line of convertible car seats and concentrated on keeping heads safe.
