Britax Chaperone Baby Car Seat Review
The Britax Chaperone is a rear facing baby car seat that considers safety and protection a top priority. The car seat is equipped with various safety features not often found in many car seats, but one of these features with the anti-rebound bar may be difficult to fit into some smaller vehicles. The car seat is able to suit babies as small as 4 pounds, and can carry them safely up to 30 pounds.
The anti-rebound bar on the base of this car seat greatly enhances the car seats ability to minimize forces due to impact from the front or back. This bar, however, can be difficult to use in smaller vehicles, but work fine in mid and larger cars. As with all baby car seats these days, the Britax Chaperone meets all Federal Safety Regulations for car seats, and includes extra foam for smaller babies as light as 4 pounds. The sturdy head wings provide extra energy absorbing head protection, and the bubble level indicators ensure the seat has been strapped and installed into the car evenly.

Ease of Use
The Britax Chaperone offers quite a bit in terms of convenience, and this is a seat that can be used with various different strollers using only the adaptor strap. What this means is that you don’t need to purchase a compatible Britax stroller to ensure use with this seat, as long as you have the adjustor strap to use with your current stroller model. The harness is easily adjustable, which is particularly convenient as your child grows.
The bubble level is a great feature that makes proper installation ( level ) of the car seat into the car easy. A parent can simply look to the bubble level to ensure the seat is installed in a safe and even manner, although the bubble level could benefit from being in a more convenient location. The anti-rebound bar adds extra rotational force protection in the event of front or rear accidents, as the added head protection cushions from side impact energy.
