    Britax b-safe back not securely in base?

    I was looking at the Britax B-Safe infant car seats at Target today. It seemed to click into the base just fine, but at the back of the car seat(so away from the seat back), it lifts up maybe an inch or so. Is this normal with these infant seats? I donít want to buy one if they arenít going to be safe and secure. I didnít know if it did this for a reason, like itís supposed to do this for some reason.

    Thank you!!

    Re: Britax b-safe back not securely in base?

    While I don't have direct experience with that particular seat, it is normal for infant seats to wiggle a bit when they are connected to the base. The end of the base far from the belt path will also likely move some once the seat is installed, which is also normal and safe. Also, it is hard to know what the display seats have been through in the store, so they might not function totally like the seat you buy.

    This is very normal for the B-Safe.
