Britax Two way elite causing heat rash....


Well-known member
My friend moved to Switzerland bought one for her rear-facing two year old and she is getting heat rash on her back.

I suggested trying washing the cover.

Her daughter never had problems in her orbit toddler seat, a radian, or when she borrowed my britax marathon.

Any other ideas? I can't even find it on the britax Sweden site to see if there are covers made with different material.

There aren't any different covers, you can buy spares but they are the same fabric. We've never had any trouble with the fabric sweating. Giving the cover a wash could help. I also take a layer off dd in the car over summer and I also make sure she's only wearing 100% cotton.
