Aesthetically speaking the Britax Baby Safe Plus II SHR Car Seat range is stunning. This car seat comes with a wide range of colourful fabric options. There are six in total which are pleasing on the eye and will suit many a vehicle for that picky parent who likes matching colour schemes. The Black Thunder colour is the most popular selling colour and you can see why when most car interiors are dark colours. The Chilli Pepper Red colour is vibrant and exciting, the Cactus Green and Sky Blue colours are fresh, bright and suit many tastes and vehicle colours. Cool Berry Purple colour is just beautiful though and my ultimate favourite, this is the car seat that I purchased for my little princess. The neutral Fossil Brown colour offers a toned down appearance if you are not into the vivid colours. I could almost envisage the chilli pepper red seat inside my red coloured car, but still went with the cool berry purple, which still matched some of my interior, bonus.

The functionality of the Britax Baby Safe Plus II SHR Car Seat offers some fantastic safety features that are tested to perfection.  The Britax Baby Safe Plus II SRH Car Seat was designed to go straight from the car to the pushchair and suits many models of the Britax B ranges.  With one simple click of the 3 position carry handle, the carried car seat fits snugly into position with the pushchair frame and then the Single Handed Release (SHR) button enables a swift movement from pushchair back to car seat mode.

The car seat is so easy to carry and transport that I would highly recommend this product. Just one click of the handle to lift out of the car and then one click again to fit it within the pushchair. It doesn’t come much easier than that. The fact that all of the padded interior is both removable and washable is also very practical for mothers and fathers on the go. The attractive style of the car seat and the ease of transporting your precious cargo safely make this car seat even more practical for modern parents. I would definitely recommend the Britax baby safe plus car seat for your new arrival, because I myself purchased this one for mine. Although I was mainly safety conscious and this was why I purchased the Britax over their competitors, I was also swayed by the ease of use and practicality of the product.

Value for Money

The Britax baby Safe Plus II SRH Car Seat is great value for money. It retails at around £100-£120 at most leading baby care shops and at that price is an absolute bargain. You are paying a reasonable amount of money for a super safe product. I have the Cool Berry purple seat and I am always looking to buy cheap and affordable products for my children. This car seat offers a safety element that money cannot buy and this alone was how I decided when roaming through the vast ranges of car seats for my angel. There is such a varying price range when it comes to infant car seats and I searched the whole range. The most expensive seats topped £350, which was way more than I had to pay and the cheaper ones came in at around £80. This seemed way too cheap and so I went for an average price and thought that I had chosen well.

I was searching for a car seat for my expected, I wanted more safety features than pleasing appearance and found this article super helpful. Never heard of D-sip technology before, but now I will not buy a car seat without this feature. Definitely a Britax for me. Super review Lone-Parenting 5 Stars
