I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Chicco. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Car seats. I think that’s one thing that parents do often worry about, right? I know I did! My little guy is older now, but boy ohhhh boy. The day we were leaving the hospital after I gave birth, I thought my husband and I would divorce – right there in the parking lot! I was stressed over all the “Oh My GOSH, I’m a new mom and they’re actually letting me leave this hospital with a little itty bitty baby human!” and the husband was being all technical and nervous too.
Fast forward to booster seats. Even though the booster seat seems like the least car seat transition to worry about, you STILL need to worry. Did you know that most parents are using the wrong cat seats? This little handy-dandy infographic is an excellent visual aid to help us worrisome parents out. I wouldn’t have actually believed that most parents use the wrong seat but a few law enforcement officers in my family actually agree with this. They say that they see it wayyyyyy too often, and I trust their judgement and advice.
Being a fan of Chicco, I’m excited about the new Chicco KidFit Booster Seat. They’ve come full circle and now have a seat for every age and stage of your kiddos. I’m one of those crazies that looks at EVERY single feature of the seats and the new Chicco KidFit Booster Seat has this LATCH attachment with SuperCinch one-pull tightener to keep the seat in place for easier in/out for kids. I love this!!! I’m sorry, but a wobbly and flimsy flop all around car seat does not make me feel all warm and cozy! I want one that stays put!
I also love that the Chicco seat pads and armrest covers are removable and machine washable. I don’t know about your kiddos, but mine is not very graceful when eating snacks in the van. He’s a dumper, spiller, wiper, and just all around professional mess-maker. I have to have a car seat that can hold up to his messiness! Ohh, and for long hauls…of course Chicco didn’t forget the awesome fold away cup holders. Cause, you know….every little dude or princess needs a cup holder!!!
Now, I highly recommend that you check out the infographic above and make sure that you’re using the appropriate car seat AND share with your friends to make sure that they are too! We are driving around with our most precious cargo on board so we want to keep them as safe as we possibly can! You can also check out these car seat safety tips, from the CDC. It’s a great resource!
Do you often worry about using the right car seat?
