Hello there, experts. I took the cover off of DS's Britax Boulevard today and noticed that the head restraint foam is cracked in 2 places. This car seat is moved from car to car quite often, so my guess is that it's from rough handling. Is this part super important, or could I, say, superglue it back together? Obviously it will be a few days before I can get the part, so we'll have to use it like it is for now.

This is the part I'm talking about in case there is any confusion:

Thanks!

Contact Britax. Some manufacturers don't consider it a safety problem and that the seat is perfectly useable so long as you tape it back in and others don't. They should be able to tell you what you can do or if it'd be safe for the time being to just tape it back together until you can get a replacement part in.

Good idea! Thanks :) FYI: They said it definitely needs to be replaced... Although, I think I would have expected that response from the manufacturer!

I did learn that I've been saying Britax wrong. I've been saying Brit like Britain, they say it like "Brian" :)
