If I were to ask you what your baby’s first milestone was, what would you say? Was it his first laugh or her first smile? Was it their first words or their first solid foods? Was it the moment they first learned how to roll over, crawl, stand, or walk? What if I told you that one of their first milestones was actually before all of that – their first ride.
After the emotional rollercoaster and excitement of birth, one of your child’s very first milestones in life is their ride home. Now, most of us are still quite new at the whole parenting thing and this can be a nerve-racking situation. Is baby buckled in correctly? Was the car seat and/or base properly installed? Did you choose the right seat? Thankfully, with Britax, you don’t have to stress over all of the worries that come along with new parenthood.
Whether you’re a mom, dad, relative, or caregiver, your first car ride with the new child in your life was most likely a milestone moment that you’ll never forget.
At Britax, we’re devoted to protecting your most precious cargo. From infant car seats for newborns to belt-positioning booster seats for big kids, we offer products with best-in-class safety, comfort, and ease-of-use features to give you peace of mind each and every time you take your child out into the world, beginning with the first ride home.
Wanting to assure that your child’s next ride is just as safe, if not more, than their first ride, by perfectly protecting them during each stage of growth, Britax has put together a fantastic campaign.
Through the #BritaxFirstRide campaign, parents are encouraged to share their own stories of first rides taken with their children. By doing so, not only are you helping to promote car seat safety but you’ll have the chance to win and win big at that!
Not one, not two, but ten (yes, TEN!) winners will each receive the next car seat for their child. Winners will have their choice between the Britax B-Agile & B-Safe Travel System, a Convertible Car Seat, a Harness-2-Booster Seat, or a Booster Seat.

For Britax babies, many of their first rides start off in the B-Safe infant car seats but from there, where do you do?
The next step for babies who have outgrown their infant car seats would be to upgrade them to a rear-facing convertible car seat. For this stage of childhood, Britax has quite a few different seats to choose from, one being the Marathon Convertible Car Seat.
For today, however, head on over to Britax and share your little one’s #BritaxFirstRide story with the world. What are you waiting for? Go, go, go!
