Recommendations before the trip:
Start preparing to make a list of things to take with you a few days before you travel.
- Do not make unnecessary changes prior to the trip that will affect your baby.
- If your baby is less than 2 years of age, prefer to travel by air. This will be a more comfortable ride. If your baby seems to be experiencing minor ear pain from air pressure changes during takeoff and landing, breastfeed her or let her suck on a bottle or pacifier.
- If you have a long-term holiday program, visit your pediatrician for a health check.
- Try to arrange trip time according to the time of your baby’s sleep. This will make the travel more comfortable for both baby and the parents.
- If you are going to a hot place have do not forget to buy and use protective creams on 50 factors for babies. Take a hat for your baby to shade her from the sun light or keep her head bundled in cool weather.
- Carry baby stuff in a separate bag. Thus you will find baby goods easily and quickly when you need them.
- While traveling with your baby wherever you go, do not forget you will need medical supplies, vitamin, baby thermometer, tape, antiseptic solutions for skin injuries so consult your pediatrician for a medication list. Prepare a first-aid kit so you’ll have the supplies you need for dealing with minor medical problems.
- Do not forget to bring wet towel, pillow, nail clippers, shampoo, a baby blanket and your baby’s favorite toys.
- If you are travelling by your car, your baby should always ride in the back seat and before you leave, make sure to check once more to see if the car seat is properly installed. Also make sure the harness fits your child securely.

The new buckle system is designed to prevent you child from sitting on the buckle. The EZ-Buckle System will cause the harness to flip forward when your child gets out of the car seat, so you will not have to search for it the next time.
The second difference is the new HUGS that comes with Safecell Energy Absorbing System so the chest clip is also different that the old Marathon 70 model. The new pads are now thicker than previous versions to absorb more energy in case of a collision.
The last important difference is the new Versa-Tether that comes with “built-in energy absorbing feature” which will reduce the forces on a child in a crash a little better than old tether system in Britax Marathon 70.
These are the most important differences in our comparison of Britax marathon 70-G3 vs 70. and we hope it helps a bit.
