As many of you who have followed me know that I had the opportunity to travel with my daughter to Miami! During our trip, we had to travel light! It was just us and I wanted to be able to carry everything on my own. My daughter is 6 year old and weight just at about 40 lbs. She has never been in anything other than a 5 point harness. I knew that traveling with a car seat and all our luggage would be way too hard for me to do. Looking for a car seat that is great for travel is tough so I decided it was time to try Bubble Bum booster seat! I also knew that trying to wait for a car with a car seat is a really big pain in the butt. We had done that before and the car showed up without a seat. Then they came back and they had a seat that wouldn’t tighten. My daughter always comes first! So I convinced myself that having her in just a booster for travel purposes would be okay and much better than letting her ride with just a seat belt.
Once my husband drove us to the airport I blue up the car seat for the first time. It filled up fast, looked cute, and seemed like it would be perfect. When we got on the plane I sat her on it and bucked her in for the first time. As we were flying it kept deflating. I was so upset. Once we arrived in Miami, I even called my husband to tell him how upset I was that our carseat didn’t work. So before we got in the cab I filled it up again and sat her on it…it didn’t deflate at all! It worked GREAT! I guess the air pressure from the plane doesn’t work with this car seat but for land travel is was amazing!
One of my concerns was that the seat would only sit her up about 3 inches…it was a lot higher than that! The seat belt fit her in a good spot and she was just about my height! I totally approve and would suggest this seat to my friends who have kids!
The seat is very light…it rolled up to about the same size as my rolled up pair of jeans. I was able to pack it in my luggage very easily. Plus my daughter liked it so much, she told me that we can just start using this instead of a car seat. I had to explain to her that this was just for travel and she needed to get just a little bit bigger before I was okay with her just sitting in a booster. 🙂 I am excited to know that next time we fly somewhere I no longer need to worry about a HUGE car seat for her. I have a booster seat that works well and has great parent review ratings! I would definitely suggest this seat!
