Time for a booster seat: BubbleBum brand to be reviewed

I’ve had a child safety seat in my vehicle for 18 straight years.

My children’s births were spaced out so that when one child was old enough or heavy enough to graduate out of the child safety seat, another child was already in another car seat.

I hadn’t thought about that until today.

However, what I have been thinking about is my youngest son and how he needs to move to a booster seat.

I bought a Britax car seat when he was big enough to sit in an upright position. I considered it the top of the line at the time. Now, at more than 50 pounds, the lanky, long-torsoed little guy has outgrown the safety seat. He prefers to take the straps down from his shoulders, so having him in the seat defeats the purpose of trying to keep him snug and safe.

I’ve been trying to decide what booster seat might be best for him. So, when BubbleBum contacted me about doing a review of their seat, I was ready to put their product to the test.

BubbleBum is sold through select Target stores.

I’ve opened the box, so read more in an upcoming blog about my and my son’s experiences with this new booster seat.
