Please take my poll on which Britax you like the best..
 
Marathon, Boulevard or Declathon
I'm not really seeing a whole lot of difference between the 3, so if anyone wants to enlighten me, please do.. They all seem to have the same guidelines (RF 33-35lbs, FF 20-65, Under 49 inches).. I'm planning to get him one in the next couple months.. I really want to know what you mom's that have these think and what is comfty for the babes etc..

I have a marathon and a roundabout and I much prefer the push button adjuster on the roundabout like the decathlon. However I would go with the boulevard for the TSIP if I were to buy one today.

Anyone know if you can buy other carseat covers for each of these styles? :headscratch:

I chose the BLVD over the MA because of the knob-adjusted harness (so I could just turn the knob instead of rethreading the straps) and because of the headwings, since DD almost always sleeps in the car. Before I bought the BLVD, her poor little head fell all the way over onto her shoulder and she looked so uncomfortable. But I do think that the MA is a close second.

We have a diplomat, which is just like a smaller boulevard, so that's what I voted for. I like the knob adjuster for the harness. You never have to worry if your child has a growth spurt, you don't rethread the straps, you just turn the knob. Also comes in handy for my kids' ever-changing diaper styles...some are more bulky than others. If I stuck my DD in her seat in a sposie right now, or in a super stuffed pocket, I'd have to move the harness up or down, but it's not a big deal and takes all of two seconds.

This is the reason I got the BLVD for both of my kids.

We bought 3 Boulevards for the True Side Impact Protection.

We have 2 BLVD's one for each vehicle. My mom is a parametic and she sees alot of stuff. She bought us the first one and we bought the second. They are more expensive, but w/ true side impact protection! Your more likely to be hit from the side than head-on, so that protection is truely needed. Hope that helps!
