Liz hasn’t been in a car seat for years, but having over 25 nieces and nephews ranging from 4 years old to 18 years old we have had our fair share of car seat switcharoos. Infant seats aren’t hard to put in and out of vehicles but bigger car seats are a pain in the rear. For the longest time we had one in each of our vehicles, and then we had an extra to use when we had an extra kid. But the BubbleBum Car Seat is now residing in our Trailblazer for when we need a booster seat for a niece or a nephew. I absolutely LOVE the fact that it is portable in an all new way. You can inflate it when needed and keep it deflated when not in use. It is perfect for Aunt’s, Uncles, Grandparents, Daycares and everyone in between. It is lightweight enough to carry in my handbag, but most importantly it’s safe for kids!!
