Age, height, and weight all matter when choosing a seat that fits your little. Research shows that children under age 2, no matter their size, should be in rear facing seats, and older children need boosters until they pass the 5 step test.
This is an updated, and upgraded, version of the Britax B-Safe. Many of the features on this new B-Safe 35 Elite version are new, and some are improved.
