Reducing the Challenges and Hassles of Traveling with Little Ones!

Earlier this year I had a chance to visit the US Headquarters of Britax, and one of the most memorable parts of the trip was a crash test safety demo, I had seen something similar on a news documentary program, but actually seeing it up close and personal and literally 'feeling' the impact in my gut was one of the most impactful parts of my trip. Even though it was a crash test family of 'dummies',  a collective gasp and many 'Ay Dios!' or 'Ay Bendito's' ('Oh my God! and Poor Thing! respectively) could be heard by the bloggers watching that crash test demo. I don't think any of us, myself especially will ever forget it.

It made me think of child safety in a whole new way and the factory tour on the whole also opened up my eyes on what safety feaures to look for when it comes to infant carseats as well as strollers. They really aren't all created equal, in terms of more than just style, but safety features and ease of use. (I know the cliche gets annoying sometimes, but you really do get what you pay for!)

I will admit my sister butterflies did a great deal of research for my niece and nephew butterflies based on what was available to them at the time, but their consistent complaints about the systems they used was that the systems didn't necessarily grow with the child, and that as a result travel had it hassles (Me being the youngest butterfly in the family I get the benefits of their trial and error coupled with my own research!). Spending much of my professional career traveling, I witness families fumbling with their strollers at airport TSA Security Checkpoints all the time and of course upon boarding an airplane where they have tons of folks behind them while we patiently wait for them to fold their stroller and get situated.

There has to be a better way!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Travel System Compatible Infant Car Seats BRITAX infant car seats can be used rear facing only from 4 to 30 pounds, and are travel system compatible with the BRITAX CHAPERONE and B-Series strollers. (What happens past 30 pounds? Glad you asked! BRITAX also offers Convertible Car Seats for a weight up to 70 pounds and Standing Height 49 in or less, a Combination Harness-2-Booster with a weight of 25 to 85 pounds and Standing Height from 30 to 65 in tall as well as Belt-Positioning Booster Seats with a Weight from 40 to 120 pounds and a Standing Height from 38 to 63 in tall. (So the safety does NOT end at 30 pounds my friends!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Travel System Compatible Strollers The BRITAX range has flexible and comfortable stroller solutions to suit your lifestyle. Strollers feature the CLICK and GO system that enables all BRITAX infant car seats to click into place to create convenient travel systems.

Safety You Can SEE:

Not only is there a website,, there is also a video:

My Take:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Travel System Compatible Infant Car Seats + Travel System Compatible Strollers with CLICK & GO = LESS HASSLE, LESS STRESS, FUN TRAVEL. That simple!

Butterflies, BRITAX takes your child's safety as seriously as you do, they want their systems to be safe and easy to use, take one less hassle out of travel and invest in a system that won't let you down!

As The Official #TwitterPartyDJ I'm always thinking music, and could probably find a way to turn almost everything into a song title! With music, travel and being on the 'go, go, go!' the theme to my summer, finding ways to remain on the go, remain on budget and still be the fun loving, yet still totally fab frugalista that you know and love, I need to keep track of deals that will help me stretch an already stretched summer budget!

And that's where our friends at Britax come in. They are inviting you to take a FREE ride with a totally fantastic freebie that is entirely hard to resist.
