Wish I could return it

I bought it and washed it and brought it with me to the fire station when I was having my car seat checked for safety and proper installation (it wasn’t installed right – turns out about 90% of car seats are not properly installed – so go get your car seat checked out too). And the fireman told me that infant inserts were not crash tested with the car seat and that it was unknown if they were safe and that I should return it (I had already washed it so it didnt seem right to return it – so i just never used it).Another good tip he gave me was the issues of projectiles in the backseat near the car seat… objects that can fly and hit your child are also very dangerous in the event of an accident. He specifically stated that the backseat mirrors were particularly unsafe because in an accident they can easily come off and hit the child in the face causing injury.However, I have a Britax car seat and I love it.

Great for the car seat and stroller

I used this in the Britax B-Safe for the first 2 or 3 months after my daughter was born. She was a December baby so I actually liked that the product was warm. I was happy to have more padding for my baby leaving the hospital as she wasn’t very big. I also can’t stress enough how important it is to use products that are crash-tested with your car seat! This product has been crash tested with all Britax car seats, according to Britax.After a couple of months, I took it out of the car seat and I used it in the Britax B-Ready and Bob Motion strollers for about 2 months. It fit very well in both and allowed me to use the regular seat of the B-Ready earlier than 6 months as it supported her head.

Not sure!

We liked this and put it in our Britax BeSafe carseat, but then at the carseat check place at the hospital- they ripped it out and said they can’t believe britax made it and it’s unsafe because holes don’t align with newborn strap settings. So it’s just sitting in my trunk. I may try to return it? The quality was good, but now I’m worried about what the carseat checkers said.

Works great in the B-Agile stroller

I purchased this so my newborn could ride comfortably in our B-agile stroller. It is soft and easy to put in and out. It looks like it would wash up well too.I see a lot of people use these types of inserts in their car seats to make their babies “more comfortable.” Do NOT use after market inserts in your car seat. The back of this insert says it’s only supposed to be used with Britax car seats. In other words, Britax has given you the OK to use it in a Britax car seat. If you have another brand of seat, your manual will say that you may not use after market products because they interfere with the straps of the seat. In fact, you will never see a Chicco or Graco manual, for instance, bless the use of an insert like this. In fact, use of after market products (i.e. products that didn’t come with your seat) will void the warranty and if you get into an accident and your baby is injured because you used something like this, you are out of luck.

Nice

Baby not born yet that’s the only reason i didn’t give it 5 stars. Just because he may not like it. I do love the fact that’s its reversable.

Great for use in strollers, but still a bit too warm…

I initially bought this for our Britax Chaperone car seat, but it just didn’t seem to fit correctly. It has since found a second life in our City Mini stroller, where it works perfectly. My 8 week old fits great with this insert, but even in walks in 70-80 degree weather, the gray side causes her to sweat. For now we’ll keep using it, but I don’t know for how much longer with the heat of summer coming up. Great for newborns and infants, but just still a bit warm, even in milder temps.

Lifts newborns up so the car seat fits better!

We have the B-Safe car seat and on my 7 lb newborn daughter the chest clip and the latches were so congested on her little torso we were always worried she was going to choke because there was so little room to move the chest clip onto her sternum and away from her neck! After a week of struggling with the regular insert we bought this because of some reviews and I am SO GLAD we did. The extra padding (it was May so we used the gray side) lifts the babies body up enough that they aren’t so collapsed in on themselves. This meant her shoulders were more even and her chest more open so there was more room to place the chest clip in the appropriate place on her sternum. My daughter looked much more comfortable, the shoulder straps hit her in the right place, AND I was more comfortable having her in the car seat because her head had so much more support. I also felt that she slept in the car seat better and fussed less, I think because she wasn’t so scrunched up! My daughter is now 10lbs and still fits in it great, so I’m not sure what is wrong with other reviewers saying their kids outgrew this? Anyway, I definitely recommend it and think that the B-Safe car seat should just come with this instead of the little black insert they have. This is much safer!

Not the best choice for the B-Agile Stroller

My baby is a year old and is not in the car seat anymore. However I ordered this to use in the stroller like the description said it was made for, mostly for side support and something softer for her head to rest on, and softer to sit on. It does all of that pretty well, and it seems fairly well made material wise. The problem is that there is no way to secure it to the stroller. It just forms around belt straps and that is it. So when baby moves and shifts around, so does this thing. And worse, when you fold the stroller for storage in the house or trunk, it just flops there. So every time you setup the stroller for use you are readjusting this pillow.Also, the space between the headrest and body rest is not long enough for my tall baby.This thing was obviously made with focus on the car seat and not the stroller and it should not be marketed as a true insert for the stroller.If anyone knows of a better alternative, please reply to this review! Thanks.

Love this!

I purchased this product for my double BOB. I was concerned about my newborn not having any head support. I have been using this for 3 months and love it! It holds him right in place and he fits great in it. It looked big when I took it out of the box but after I got it and my baby in the stroller it’s perfect. The stroller straps fit right through the opening between the head and arm support so the straps are where they should be. The material is great and has held up over a few washes. I love that it’s reversible now that it’s summer. Would definitely recommend for stroller use.

great quality

this was well worth the money. My son is 5 months old and can’t keep himself upright the whole time in the stroller and this little bit of padding does the trick. He likes to be out of his car seat so this pad allows us to take him out of the car seat and straight to the stroller without having to prop blankets around him.love it!

helpful

We put this is our Britax B-Agile Double (with the seat as far back as it goes) for our newborn. She has been safe and comfy in there since she was just a few weeks old. It has really helped since our car seat (Chicco) doesn’t fit in the B-Agile Double.

Great for use in strollers

I bought this when my son was 3 months old and we still use it in his stroller now that he’s 12 months old. Since we live in a warm climate, we typically have it with the gray or cool side against his body so it doesn’t add too much heat. I like that it provides cushioning for his head, especially during long walks around the mall.

A “must have” for a good fit for newborns in B-Safe carseat

We have the B-safe carseat and b-agile stroller (LOVE the stroller!). Our 7.5 lb newborn fits well in the carseat but the head support that came with the carseat caused the straps to fit badly. The head support included with the carseat makes the shoulder straps too wide to fit properly. After contacting Britax about the issue and emailing them photos of the unsafe fit, the CS rep agreed that the straps did not fit right due to the insert and sent me the head and body support pillow free of charge. Now the straps fit properly (actually over his shoulders verses barely on his shoulders) and he is very snug and safe in the seat. I could have removed the insert and just used rolled up receiving blankets in it’s place but honestly the insert included should fit a baby correctly. This solves the problem and as a bonus it’s also usable in the stroller. This is fairly large so I expect it to fit my son as he grows for quite some time. I would highly recommend anyone who is using the B-Safe carseat for a newborn get this product as well if you want a proper fit for the straps, which should be coming from below or at level with the baby’s shoulders rearfacing and lay over the shoulders, not the arms. Great product! It does make my son sweat but so did the infant support that came with the carseat. I would give it 5 stars if it were made of breathable fabric.

don’t bother

Once I put in the car seat for out baby, he could barely move. He was only 2 months old but fully dressed I could see this wouldn’t last long. *instead roll some receiving blankets up to put beside baby to support them*Also, tried it in stroller – a no go.

Overall fantastic product

My baby loves this and so do I so it’s a win-win all around. It washes fantastic and is super comfy for her. I can easily flip it to the warm or cool side depending up on the weather and it makes it much more comfortable for her to sleep in the stroller if needed. We bought this to use in our Britax B-Agile stroller in Disney World and our 5 month old was in it during long days in the parks and she never complained. She seemed really comfy and happy so I would recommend this to anyone.

Great insert!

I bought this for the Britax B-Safe car seat. Without the insert, my two month old appeared crunched up in the seat, so the insert helped him fit better and more comfortably in the seat.

Removed for safety concerns

We actually took this out of the car seat, even though our little one was only 5 lbs when we brought her home. We were told by a safety technician that even though this is a Britax pillow and we have a Britx seat, the seats are not safety tested with the pillows. She said that we wouldn’t want to see what could happen when there was a crash with one of these in the seat. Better safe than sorry – we took it out. She actually fits just fine with the original seat padding.

too snug

We received this as a gift for our newborn. Though it was easy to install, it was too small for use with our 7 lb son in the the Britax b-safe carseat. This carseat already has an insert that comes with it and if we were to use this it would have been both too warm for him and too snug around his head. Perhaps it would be best for a smaller baby.

Good fit, soft and warm

My six week old is still using this product in our Britax B-Safe car seat. We like it very much. It keeps him warm and seated comfortable- his head no longer falls to one side and the straps fit him comfortably. The head piece detaches via velcro so it can be adjusted for growing babies. The material feels like a furry suede so it’s not cold if your car seat stays in the car during winter.

Comfy

I like this insert for a few reasons (not in order of importance). First, it fits nicely into the Britax car seat. Second, it comes out easily for cleaning (it can be cleaned easily in the washer/dryer). Third, It supports our little one’s head and body well. The side supports do take up quite a bit of room but other than that, we have had no problems. We would buy this again.

Good product

Haven’t used the product yet, still waiting for the passenger. However, I did wash it and it held up well. I hung it out to dry. Being a first time mom, I’m still not quite sure how to place this in the car seat, I’m hoping the nurses at the hospital can show me when the time comes. The package didn’t have instructions that I saw, just a picture of a super cute smiling baby. I haven’t read the Britax car seat and stroller manual either, but I’m sure we’ll figure it out. LOL

Worked perfect.

I was a little worried, as some of these don’t work so well. My baby girl is a month old but very tiny for her age. This fits her perfectly and does not move. That was the most important thing. Some of them move around so much and make it so difficult to get the kids in there.

Nicely designed

This was the third liner I purchased. I wish it was the first. I had a JJ Cole, but every time I folded the stroller, it fell out so one day I must have missed seeing it fall and it disappeared. This one fits very well into both my Britax and Joovy strollers and snuggles against my baby perfectly. It makes it so much easier for him so sleep, even when bumping along on my bridal path jogs. Being in 110 degree heat, I use the gray side out and it is nice fabric. Very nicely made. I’m getting to be a huge Britax fan.

Great for Supporting Newborn

We found this useful in the stroller as well as his swing/bouncer. Our little guy was too hot natured to use this for long (even when positioned on the cooler side in the middle of winter!). I would recommend this item to a friend!

Great for cold weather….

I live in Florida and even in the winter here this insert was insanely hot for my baby. The pros: it’s made from a very non slippery material and held the baby nice and in place. The cons: it makes the baby so hit it can overheat them, even when it’s not that hot outside. It’s soft enough got comfort yet too hot. I would recommend looking for a different alternative unless you plan on using in the dead of winter.

Comfy cozy!

We didn’t use this for very long in the b-safe infant seat because our little one didn’t need it after about 3 months but we still use it in the b-agile stroller and it makes his ride very comfy! Will probably use when we transition to the Britax Blvd. soon as well. Washes beautifully and works great!

Works OK

My 11 month old (19 lbs) always falls to her side while on her Britax stroller. So I only use the body support but it only helped a little bit. It looks like it needs more cushion.

Good head support… a little too much padding in the BSAFE

I bought this for my 6 week old baby to use in his Britax B Safe infant car seat… mainly for the head support. Since it is summer time, I liked the reversible option of this body pillow. The gray "moisture wicking" fabric does a decent job of keeping him cool. The only issue I have is with his particular car seat this adds a lot of extra padding… which I don’t think he mids when he is sleeping.. but doesn’t make for much moving room when he is awake.
