Most Helpful Reviews on the Britax B-Safe Infant Car Seat.

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 10/27/2012 – … Overall, the Britax B-Safe is a wonderful infant seat that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends and family. It is very similar in features and price to the Chicco Keyfit 30 Car Seat, so I’ll give a basic comparison to help parents decide between the two…. Both the B-Safe and the KeyFit 30 fit tiny babies really well, thanks to the infant padding provided by each manufacturer…. The Britax B-Safe has one drawback on the “fit” side of things: the straps can be somewhat “twisty”…. Installation:… Fabric:…. Canopy:… (read more and buy it at
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 11/14/2012 – We originally purchased a Britax Chaperone but after a few weeks of use, we found it to be too heavy and bulky so we purchased a Britax B-Safe…. A few other cons of the Britax B-Safe: – Sunshade is kind of small and doesn’t cover baby’s face well – I think the handle could be more ergonomic.

  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 8/15/2012 – … But what I HATE MOST about the car seat is how difficult it is putting it on and getting it off the car seat base. It doesn’t click easily like my other car seat does. You have to really align it with the base in order for it to lock in place. The release lever is also in a VERY AWKWARD position. It’s located at the head of the car seat so it’s difficult to get to…. (read more and buy it at
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 11/1/2012 – I am a huge Britax fan and I have no complaints with my older sons Britax seat. There are frustrating aspects to this seat, however. For one, the straps are easily twisted…. On a positive note it’s so very simple in click into and release from the base, it feels strong and secure, she appears to be comfortable in it and the material cleans very easily…. (read more and buy it at
