My DH left the Britax booster seat on the ground outside and our 8 month old German Shepherd ate the foam part of the seat!!
. It's the foam piece that goes under the cloth seat cover. It really seems like more of a comfort factor, because now he'll have to sit on plastic rather than a comfortable pad. My DH feels this isn't a safety issue.
Any thoughts? Can I use this car seat? Thanks!
I think that foam is integral to the safety protection feature. You'll need to get a new seat.
If it was gray foam, it was comfort padding. If it was white foam, it was EPS foam, which is a crash force reducer. Either way, the seat is still safe to use, but if it was EPS foam, you shouldn't use it again until you get a replacement from Britax.
I would call Britax and see if you can get a replacement for the foam. It shouldn't be too expensive.
Thanks everyone! I think all she ate was the grey foam. I called Britax and they sent me a new one for free!!
