Unsafe - buckle has come unclipped whilst car in motion on 4 occasions
I started using a brand new Britax Safe-n-Sound Graphene just over a year ago. During this time, I have had to pull over on 4 occasions (twice on the freeway) because my toddler's arms were out of his harness. I followed Britax's directions to clean the buckle after the first time it happened but this did not fix the issue. When I called Britax about it, they said they would send me a new buckle. I said I wanted the whole seat inspected for compliance and if repaired (not replaced) some assurance that the car seat was safe if repaired. I w...as sent on a wild goose chase to book in a time with their repairer, who wasn't open when I called and then said they didn't work the next day either. What type of service is this? I still don't have any clue about when and where to take my car seat (let alone the fact that I am extremely anxious to drive with my toddler in the car seat). Why is this so hard? It is seemingly a faulty car seat - surely that's serious! The product is poor and the customer service is poor. I am going to cut my losses, buy a new car seat and it will definitely not be Britax - ever again.
Faulty and dangerous
Upon putting my rear facing daughter into her seat I noticed the harness straps were super loose. They released on their own. Pulled strap to tighten and nothing, back to loose. The mechanism to hold the belt tight had failed. Thank goodness it didn’t fail while driving or in an accident! Super dangerous.
So I messaged britax and their solution was to return it to them and forfeit having a seat for my child.
Not really good enough. I’m so disappointed in the seat to begin with (compared to infasecure Quattro it’s just not even in the same ball park) given it failed in its most basic job, to restrain. But the customer support is lacking. Sending my seat away and being left with nothing isn’t good enough britax.

2 thumbs up for fitting 3 across the back seat!
When we found out we were expecting twins, one of our many challenges was figuring out how to get three car seats across the back of our car. At the baby expo we spoke to a very helpful, informative sales rep who recommended the Graphene for being slimline and top quality. Baby Bunting let us try two in our back seat with our existing car seat, proving they could fit easily (rear and front facing), leaving plenty of legroom for the driver and passenger, and the rest is history.
With double the opportunities for soiling car seats we have washe...d these many times - they are quick and easy to strip... ALL parts of material - a pretty key factor which we learnt from having a car seat on which the shoulder covers didn’t remove. Eeek. We used to joke these car seats were like baby clouds - as very little babies they were obviously quite comfortable in them, pooping every time we went somewhere. Every. Single. Time. At the time I remember reading on online forums that a number of other parents were having the same experience with the Graphene. Now that’s a comfy ride! Overall we’re very happy with them, and at over 2yo and still looking brand new, are more than satisfied with the quality, safety and functionality.

Easy to clean and doesn’t take up to much space in a small SUV. (CX-5) And ( X1 )
Extra head support (Torso Side Impact Cushion Technology - SICT) was a winner for us!
Did you know!
This seat can be rearward facing up to 3 years, As Forward facing if you were in an accident baby neck would get hit with a force of 180kg plus?? Whereas if they were to be rearward facing that force would be 40kg - 60kg?
Been using for over a year with no issues!
Would highly recommend if your looking for a smaller car seat and want peace of mind on safety.

Excellent quality and comfy
My daughter used to cry in her old seat and she enjoyed this one the moment we installed it. Got it from baby buntings and installed it on site. Safety features go without the saying. It is also of great quality. Easy to set straps aside and adjust. Have been using it for 3, 4 months now with zero problem. Highly recommend.

Excellent car seat , my baby loves it
My son loves this car seat - it's comfortable and I find that there is less crying. We got it installed professionally. It is easy to put him in it and out. Smaller version of the millenia which we were going to get but realised we wouldn't have much room for other passengers so we bought this one instead. Great price too as I bought during an eBay sale.

Love love love
my son use to scream every time we got in the car! From birth, this was concerning. We were told he was a baby who just didnt like the car..
We purchased the graphene and have not looked back! He sleeps so much, and just plays in the back while he is awake! Now 5 months old and big for his age (size 1) he still has a fair while left rear facing! We love it!

My son sit so comfortablly in this seat. I purchased for the amazing safety features and the airbags in the seat. I wouldn't ever go past this seat if I were to need another.
Perfect for our little one
Seat was extremely easy to fit, affordable, easy to get bub in and out of and looks great. Very happy with this product. Would definitely recommend. Fits nicely in a small golf and Triton Ute.

good buy with all safety features
We knew when purchasing a car seat that we were going with britax no matter what. No other company compares to their safety ratings. We originally wanted the Millenia but when we met with the britax consultant he recommended the slimmer graphene due to our car size (sedan toyota). This seat is fantastic! Have found it so easy to use and a breeze to install. So far, so good :)

Great seat & easy install
This is a great seat to use from birth. Isofix install makes it easy to attach & remove seat, so ideal if you need to switch between cars. The covers come off easy, so removing and cleaning is very straight forward. Also fits perfectly in our Golf R special edition, I can still sit comfortably in the passenger seat. Also getting baby in an out is pretty easy - best of all no screams or tears, our son generally falls asleep within 5 mins Into the trip.

Great car seat
We really like the quality of this product. The material is very soft and comfortable and most importantly great safety features. It also fits well in our car without having to take up too much. Will buy again for future children.

My daughter loves this seat, it was very easy to install and we have taken it in and out 3 times and seems so comfy for her as she doesn’t get agitated or grumpy in it like she did her capsule, seems very safe and reliable. Amazing seat will buy another one for my car when it’s up and running, 5 star seat

Our child looks so comfortable in it. No more wriggling and crying!
We bought this brand from baby bunting, looks and feels luxurious with soft paddings and our child's heads looks well secured. We placed the seat in the middle of second seat facing forward and the base is perfect, does not cover the other seats seatbelt ports. Easy to install, adjust and remove as well.

Questions & Answers
What age do you remove the infant cushion? My baby is 5 months old but he looks like it's tight.
My baby seat straps get twisted when clicking the child in . How do I stop it
Hi Kat, thanks for your question. The insert is a comfort item, not a safety item therefore you can remove the insert once your little one no longer requires the extra padding. Kind regards, the Britax Childcare team.
I have misplaced my new born insert and wish to use my current seat for my newborn - do you sell the new born inserts seperately?
Hi Alisha, thanks for your question. We don't sell the newborn insert as separately however we do have the Britax Unity Infant Comfort insert which is able to used as this has been tested and approved the Australian Standard for Child Restraint Accessories - https://britax-au.myshopify.com/collections/car-seats/products/britax-unity-comfort-insert kind regards, the Britax team.
Hello where can I find the serial number on the graphene car seat?
Hi kelly B. Thanks for your question. The serial number and manufacturing sticker are located on the inside of the seat, close to where the crotch buckle slots into the seat. If you are having difficulty finding this, please email email@example.com so we can provide you with a photo to assist you further. Kind regards, the Britax Childcare team.
