I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Chicco. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
If you’re looking for a new booster seat for your child, I’m excited to tell you that Chicco now offers an amazing booster seat! With their line of car seats now covering all the bases when it comes to children’s ages, their new KidFit Booster Seat is perfect for transitioning your child out of a car seat. Booster seats are the best way to go from a regular car seat to teaching your kids how to properly sit in a normal seat. Booster seats offer impact protection as well as sitting them at a safe height to use a regular seat belt. Some of my favorite features of the new Kidfit Booster Seat are:
- DuoZone™ 10-position head and shoulder side-impact protection
- SuperCinch® LATCH attachment and tightener
- ErgoBoost™ contoured seat with double foam padding
- 2 removable cup holders fold away when not in use
- Removable, machine-washable seat pad and armrest covers
- 2-position backrest adjusts to mimic vehicle seat position
- Removable backrest for use as backless booster
My 5 year old transitioned into her booster seat last year and she loves it! We are getting ready to transition our son this year and he can’t wait to get his “big boy” seat. We did have a bit of a learning curve at the beginning of my daughter using her new seat. She learned that she was now able to unbuckle herself and get out of her seat which was completely new to her. We had to explain (more then a few times and sometimes sternly) that she couldn’t touch her seat belt unless mommy or daddy said it was alright. After about a month or so of her new seat she was completely adjusted and riding fine!
Being a mom of 3, I’ve had my fair share of experience with car seats. Over the years I’ve learned what’s right and safe for my kids and how to make sure their car seats are working properly. Of course learning proper car seat safety is something that can take a bit of time and educating yourself on the subject in something I believe every parent should have as a top priority.
Unfortunately, due to constant changes in the rules and regulations of car seat safety, many parents aren’t practicing proper car seat and booster seat safety just due to the simple fact that they don’t know any better. I know I’ve had my mishaps before. I find if I ever need an update on current car seat regulations, my local police and fire departments are wonderful at filling me in! You can even take your car seat to their offices and they should be able to check the installation of the seat and make sure everything is being done right. They’ll also show you where the belts and straps on your child should fall so that all safety measures have been maximized.
Here are a few great tips regarding car seat safety that just may save your child’s life one day.
