Having a baby often means bringing them wherever you go – whether you would prefer this or not! So infant car seat adapters really are a blessing for parents like you who want hassle-free travel with their little one.
Nowadays, you are free to make your own perfect travel system for your baby. You don’t have to worry anymore because this accessory—an infant car seat adapter—will connect your infant car seat to your stroller for smooth and safe travel with your baby. You can purchase a stroller from one brand and a car seat from another, or two different models and use them both.
If you already have a favorite Britax stroller but are wondering what adapter you need to make your car seat compatible, you have come to the right place! We have put together a guide for parents or expecting parents who currently have, or plan to buy, a Britax stroller for their baby’s travel system.
Before we dive into the best products available on the market, we have to mention that Britax has updated some models, which means some other products, including car seat adapters, were discontinued. Nevertheless, you can still find the most compatible adapter for your Britax Stroller.

How to Choose the Best Car Seat Adapter for a Britax Stroller
For parents-to-be or those who have not yet invested in a car seat adapter, you’ll soon realize that shopping for an adapter is no easy feat. You need to pay attention to the little details to ensure that you get a compatible product with your stroller.
Tedious, you might say, but necessary for your baby’s safety and your convenience.
Here are the factors to consider when you shop around for car seat adapter products.
Make sure your adapter is compatible with both your infant car seat and your stroller
The market for adapters is limited so you have to find the exact model that is compatible with both your stroller and your car seat.
If you have a Britax stroller and a Britax car seat, you will not need an additional adapter at all as these two products work great together, as mentioned above.
However, if you have a Britax stroller but plan to order a car seat from another brand, then you really need an accessory that will connect your car seat to your stroller. Compatibility is very important: there will only be two results; it will work, or it will not.
Check the weight limit of your adapter
The weight limit of the adapter should be enough to support your baby for as long as you want to use the car seat. In most cases, this weight limit ranges from a minimum of 15 lbs and an average maximum of 35 lbs. But you can also find products that support weight limits of up to 40 lbs, or even 50 lbs.
So if you want your car seat for long-term use, look for adapters made for infant car seats that hold children up to six years old.
Do you need a child tray?
Child trays can be extremely useful when you travel with your baby in your car, so investing in an accessory with a child tray is not a bad idea. There are some adapters that have a snack tray. Try looking into such accessories when choosing your investment and see if you’d like to purchase one. Be careful not to leave children unattended with food or toys.
Even if such accessories are rare to find, you should still pay attention to the details, because you might get one with a child tray but end up not using it because of incompatibility.
Check if you can fold the stroller with the car seat on it
One of the most important features your adapter should have is the flexibility and compatibility with all the features of the stroller. For instance, if the adapter is compatible with both the car seat and the stroller, then you shouldn’t need to remove the car seat when folding the stroller.
It seems simple, but you will really appreciate its convenience when you experience removing the car seat every single time you need to fold the stroller, and attaching it over again when you need to. Do that multiple times and it gets frustrating!
Consider the design and material
Even if the adapter’s quality is not as important as that of the car seat, it still has to be sturdy enough to keep your child safe and stable. This is why you want to look for adapters that are made of a hard type of plastic or metal that is resistant and doesn’t wiggle around in the car or as you use them on your stroller.
The design of your adapter shouldn’t be neglected either – and there’s nothing wrong with some extra style!
Most adapters for infant car seats and strollers are black or silver, but you might find other colors too. You can pick a product that will match the rest of your equipment so it will not look out of place. Your perfect adapter should look like a set along with your baby car seat and your stroller.
