Last week Dil and I escaped into London for a day of adventuring and got to attend a beautiful breakfast hosted by Britax Römer. Car seats are something that I, like many parents, have spent hours researching so I was really excited to be able to chat all things car safety with such a trusted brand. We have owned several Britax Römer seats, including the Max Fix and two 2-Way Elites, which Dil is currently in now. Britax Römer has been manufacturing car seats for over 50 years; supplying families all over the country with award winning car seats, pioneering car seat technologies and setting a precedence amongst other manufacturers across Europe.
I’m a huge advocate for extended rear facing, and I’m looking forward to working more with Britax Römer to bring you some more information on keeping your children rear facing for as long as possible. A child under 5 is 500% safer if they are rear facing instead of forward facing, due to the weight of their head in comparison to their body and the development of their skeleton and bones, so keeping Dil that way round has been a priority for me. I was particularly interested in checking out the Britax Römer Multi-Tech III and the Britax Römer Max-Way, both of which can rear face up to 25kg (up to about 6/7 for most kids).
As we enjoyed a beautiful breakfast at the stunning Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings we listened to a brief history of the Britax Römer brand and their range of car seats and push chairs, including the Britax Römer BABY-SAFE which has been the choice of William and Kate for all three of their little ones. After eating we were able to take a closer look at some of the range, including getting a sneak peek of the new Britax Römer Holiday Double, which unbelievably folds up small enough to be carried as a back pack.
