Sweat dripping down your brow, crushed and pinched fingers, and indistinguishable shouts of frustration are pretty much the three ways I would typically describe the process of installing a car seat. That is before our family got the Britax Pinnacle 90.

(Images are for review purposes only, the seat was not fully installed and we did not drive the vehicle in the pictured modes.)

I have been praying for a car seat like this. One that I don’t turn down carpooling so I don’t have to take the car seat out or leave a little dirtier than I like because of the hassle that installation is, not to mention the worry that when we reinstall the seat it may not be as tight or secure as it was before we took it out of the minivan.

See, Pinnacle 90 car seat has a cool feature called the ClickTight Installation System. Basically, no matter what “mode” the car seat is in, you can easily install and uninstall the car seat without having to deal with the difficulty of threading the seatbelt or figuring out how to use the Latch System.

When it comes to safety the ClickTight Installation System does one better. Before we would try our hardest to get the tightest fit for the car seats with as little wiggle room as possible, (according to safety standards), but never quite knowing if we had the seat quite right. Britax has taken out all the guesswork with this system so each time you install your car seat, no matter what vehicle you put your child in, you know the installation is safe and exact each time.

Installation in three easy steps:

Step 1
Simply squeeze using thumb and finger, where indicated, to reveal the ClickTight Technology. What makes BRITAX ClickTight Technology so unique is that the belt path has been exposed and is right in front of you. This eliminates the “blind reach” around the seat into a potentially small belt path. It also means that you don’t have to figure out how to route your vehicle seat belt through the seat (i.e. long belt paths versus short belt paths, etc.).

Step 2

Thread the seatbelt over the armrest and under the seat opening. Connect the seat belt and remove slack.

Step 3

Then push it closed. The click tells you you’ve installed the seat securely.

See it in action:

I am a huge fan of Britax as a company and have been even before I began working with them on reviews and projects. My family used Britax products for several years and believe Britax is a quality brand.

I received a sample product for review purposes for this post . All opinions and thoughts in this post are my own honest words. Your opinions may vary.

Protect Baby from Bugs and Sun with Cozy Cover {Guest Review}

This week has been wonderful! I am so excited that the weather has been warm and the sun has been bright and shining in North Carolina. Hopefully this is an indication that Spring is here to stay!

We are spending a lot of time outside. That’s wonderful for the older children, but we just welcomed our newest member of the family into the world last week. I can’t be two places at one time, so she comes outside with us. She’s definitely been getting her vitamin D, but I don’t want her to burn.

I was pretty excited to see the Cozy Cover Sun & Bug Cover when it arrived in the mail. It’s the perfect solution!

Cozy Cover Review MommyB

Cozy Cover Out of the Box

Not only does it protect her from the sun, it also keeps the bugs away. We have a pergola attached to our back porch and the wood bees LOVE it. Thankfully they tend to mind their own business if we leave them alone. So far we haven’t had to deal with mosquitos. But they usually aren’t bad until Summer officially starts.

With the weather being so nice out this week, our oldest daughter requested that we eat outside for dinner. I didn’t really want to lay a blanket on the grass or the concrete and lay baby girl down, so I pulled out her car seat and attached the Cozy Cover.

It was so easy to use!

There an elasticized edge around the cover, and it fits snuggly around the sides of the infant car seat. This makes for a great universal fit. We have an Cybex Aton infant seat, and it fits great.

The pullover flap protects the baby from the sun, or even rain. It has elastic at the bottom of the flap so it fits securely over the seat.

There is even a self-supporting canopy to keep the cover away from the baby’s face.

Cozy Sun and Bug Cover Review

Her brothers and sister enjoyed having her outside with them, and I had peace of mind that she was safe from the sun and any bugs that might want to feast on her newborn sweetness.
