Britax_companionAccording to MSNBC’s Jeannette Wall, a source at Beverly Hills baby boutique Petit Tresor says that Britney Spears has purchased a Britax car seat for new baby Sutton Pierce.  The source says, "She said she needed the best for her baby."

We don’t know which car seat she purchased, but if she purchased an infant carseat, it would be the Britax Companion. The rear-facing Companion offers anti-rebound bar, True Side Impact Protection (TSIP) head pad, push button release LATCH system, multiple recline positions, and can be used from 4-22 pounds.  Available for $199 at BabyUniverse.com.

It’s only “the best” if installed and used correctly. Not like her forward facing Preston at 8 months of age in his Britax Roundabout.

My daughter has been riding in a Britax Marathon since she was almost 3 years of age. I was able to keep her rear facing (safest!) until she was 4 (and finally reached 33lbs) because it has such a high back. She’s now almost 6 and still using it forward facing.

Britax seats are great since they are really easy to get a great fit in a short amount of time. A friend of mine has owned just about every Britax product and I actually prefer their ‘Baby safe’ infant seat to the ‘Companion’. The Baby safe had a foot as well as the rebound bar just to make sure that it goes nowhere in a crash. Plus the Companion is really heavy in comparison! Sadly, they don’t make the Baby safe anymore because they released it too soon after the Companion and it’s sales didn’t do too well. Hopefully I’ll have another child before my friend’s Baby safe expires so I can use it.

Good choice for Birtney! Britax car seats are excellent. That is what I will be getting next time I have a baby. But, like Lorus said it is only safe if used correctly. Lets hope Brit learned her lesson with the car seat mistakes she made in the past. Good choice, Brit!

Britax carseats are great, yes… but the carseats that Britney used with Sean when he was an infant were fine too (I believe she had a Combi and a Safety 1st Designer 22 (both very high rated, both very nice seats to those who like them… just don’t ask Britax users). All carseats are incredibly safe when used properly. The Britax is more than likely no safer if installed incorrectly than any other infant seat. The point is, it wasn’t the items that Britney bought, it was her inexperience. She needed to seek help in using the properly. I hope she does this time.

Should she not already have a car seat from Sean? It should only be a year old, and therefore not outdated. If she did, indeed buy a new one I hope she gave the old one to a family that could use it instead of it sitting in a basement or going in the garbage.

I totally agree, Britney is right on, Britax is the best around! I bought mine at BabyAge.com. They had free shipping on my seat and I love the seat! I feel so safe when we are driving around.

And hopefully she uses it and uses it correctly. For the sake of the baby.
