Even Your "Big Kid" Needs A Boost For Correct Seat Belt Protection #GIVEAWAY #BubbleBum

New research carried out by BubbleBum has revealed that the majority of parents have driven a child in their vehicle without the correct car seat. BubbleBum, makers of the world’s first inflatable car booster seats, asked 1014 people whether they had ever knowingly carried a child in a car without the correct seat;  54% (548) answered that they had. This would seem to suggest that more needs to be done to raise awareness of the dangers faced by children when traveling, and how car-seats can provide life-saving protection in the event of a crash.  

BubbleBum: Kids love staying both safe and comfortable with BubbleBum’s kid-approved, super cool inflatable booster seat. Perfect for daily carpooling, road trips, fly ins with car rentals, and taxi/Uber/Lyft rides, BubbleBum gives older kiddos (ages 4-11) the perfect "boost" to prevent the risk of slouching (which happens with flat car booster seats) and seat belt abdominal injury in the event of a crash. The air filled design provides extra comfort and utilizes memory foam technology to help create stability and structural integrity in the seat with side positioners to correctly position the lap belt. The cool factor makes kids more likely to want to use a booster seat.

Now that my kids are 12 and 14 they are not using booster seats. They are both taller than me but a few years ago BubbleBum made my daughter feel like a "big kid". 

My daughter started to get embarrassed around 7 or 8 when her friends would get in our car and ask her "you are still in a car seat?" It wasn't really a car seat as much as a booster seat but looked very much like a car seat. 

When I got a Bubblebum she was so excited it was enough to raise her up so she could reach her car seat without looking like a "baby" car seat. She sat on a BubbleBum for 2 years. It was perfect. I had a small car with two seats in the back and her old booster seat made it difficult to fit a third kid and whenever a friend's parent asked if she could take my daughter there was a whole transition of her booster seat into another car. The BubbleBum made that so much easier. 

You can watch our transition from Booster seat to Bubble Bum here.

Bubble Bum has changed a lot since we had one. There are so many to choose from.
