Finally got my Britax-from insurance


New member
I ordered a Britax MA to replace mine since we were involved in a accident. I got the Ashley Floral on sale, I should have checked the DOM. I realize it now cause when the carseat came in today the DOM says 8-06. It was on sale and I don't know if it was worth the sale price. My DD is only 11 mon. and I hope that I can get alot of use out of it. I should have bought the cowmoo for reg. price since the insurance was replacing my graystone from Target that I paid $270 for.

What was the DOM of the original seat you had? If, for example, you purchased the seat when your DD was 6 months old, then hypothetically you could have had a DOM of June-July 07. I would say that getting a replacement seat that is 1 year older than the one you originally had would be room to replace it, buy a newer seat, and have the insurance company pay the difference. Explain to them that you were trying to save them $$ by purchasing it on sale, but that an older DOM is not a comparable seat, so you would like to return it and get a newer one. They should understand and work with you.

Good luck!
