Mommie Divas has included us in their list of three products to never leave home without. Check out what they had to say about the BubbleBum Inflatable Car Booster Seat below.
It is Labor Day Weekend and that means it is Road Trip Time!
Living in the vast state New Mexico, it takes a while to get…anywhere. As a family, we spend a lot of weekends exploring and enjoying sights that are within a ½ day’s drive from us, such as Santa Fe, NM; Big Bend National Park in Texas, and Tucson, AZ.
Taking a road trip with children can be overwhelming at first. All that time in that small, enclosed space with nowhere to run and play, being part navigator, part entertainer—not to mention the mountain of items you need to bring with you.
After a couple of dozen trips ranging from an hour to 12-hours, we have our routine down pretty pat. The key is items that can be minimize the amount of space they take, that saves us time, and that keeps us organized.
Let’s face it: it is hard to leave the house with a young child and not bring an army’s worth of supplies with you. If you can produce a child-orientated product in a way that reduces the size by half or more, you have my attention.
Here are the items we don’t leave home without now:
BubbleBum Inflatable Booster Seat.
What it is: Like the name suggests, an inflatable booster seat that can be used at restaurants or even for car trips.
Why we love it: Now this one pertains to road trips with rental cars. Renting a booster seat from companies like Budget or Hertz can easily run $11 or more a day. Bringing your own booster seat ensures you have the equipment you need, its been properly sanitized, and saves you money. However, carrying a booster seat on an airplane is no less annoying that a car seat. Because BubbleBum Inflatable Booster Seat folds up flat, all you need to do it slip it into your bag until you reach your destination. Loosing the cumbersome seat is a win in my book. Then, for any restaurants on the road, you can use it again to help your kiddos reach the table — without someone else’s lunch stuck to their seat.
