Safe and Happy Holiday Travel with #Safety1st

Dec giveaway bundle imageWith many families hitting the road this holiday season, its a good time to do some basic safety checks.  Before hitting the road, especially for long road trips, it’s important to check things like air pressure and get an oil change if necessary.  I like to check my car’s first aid kit too, throwing away and replacing any expired antibiotics and medications.  You never want to get caught off guard in an emergency.

Before any road trip I like to get my car seat checked.  Overtime things may loosen or even get unbuckled.  We are loving our new Elite 80 Air + 3-in-1 Car Seat.  Featuring Safety 1st’s new Air Protect+, it combines the advanced protection of the Air Protect® cushion system with patented GCell HX™ foam designed with hexagonal shapes for superior protection around the torso. TOGETHER they provide full body side impact protection.  It also includes color-coded belt paths and installation labels to help you install it quickly and correctly.  With over 80% of car seats installed incorrectly, it’s an important thing not to overlook.  We can all agree our most precious cargo is our children.

More than just a convertible car seat, the Elite 80 works in rear-facing mode for babies up to 40 pounds, then – like traditional convertible car seats – converts to forward-facing with harness, but features an extended weight range to keep children safely in harness all the way to 80 pounds.  In its 3rd mode, the Elite 80 goes beyond the traditional convertible seat to convert into a belt-positioning booster car seat for children up to 100 pounds.  As a family of 4 now, this car seat is a real bargain, this three-in-one car seat will carry your little one safely from infant to 100 pounds.

Another great Safety 1st product which has become invaluable to me is our Front or Back BabyView Mirror.  Any car ride can include anywhere from 1-4 kids and I like to keep an eye on all of them, especially baby.  While it’s important to keep your eyes on the road, this fully adjustable mirror allows you to safely view baby.

Organization is never a bad thing, especially on a road trip.  I’m sure everyone is sympathizing with my recent road trip with 4 children in tow.  Organizing their emergency items was easy with the Just-in-Case Storage Station.  It held everything from extra diapers to wipes, change of clothing, snacks and even my emergency manual breast pump.  Having a simple space to place things was so nice instead of loads of random bags tossed into the car.  Yes organization and planning is key, especially with my little zoo!
