Child Passenger Safety Week – Safety 1st‎ BoostAPak Giveaway

One brand I can always count on for safety is Safety 1st. and when it comes to car seats I know safety is always #1. It’s Child Passenger Safety Week and I’m making sure that my kiddos seats are all adjusted to their current heights, etc. and double checking all of our seats just to be sure we are safe. I think as a parent it’s so easy to get busy and forget to do small things like readjust the seats and buckles. I know my children grow like weeds the older they are getting so I try to stay current with it for safety.

With my girls getting older and now one of them in a booster seat I always want to be sure they are still safe. The BoostAPak Belt-Positioning Booster Car Seat  is the booster both parents and kids will love. This 2-in-1 sensation is a booster seat that doubles as a backpack.

Kids have the convenience of a travel bag and can use it to stay safer when switching from one car pool in the morning to a different one on the way home. The compact size fits easily into an airplane overhead bin making it ideal for family trips too. The belt positioning makes sure your child’s seat belt is in the right place and your child is safe and secure.

There are some other things you can do to be sure your kiddos are safe. Check out this Child Passenger Safety Video: 

Saturday September 21st is Seat Check Saturday. The day is meant to offer help to parents to be sure their child’s seat is correctly installed, they can also offer advice on finding a new carseat that fits your growing child or assist with any other help or questions you may have. Simply find a location near you for Seat Check Saturday.


One winner will win a BoostAPak Belt-Positioning Booster Car Seat from Safety 1st

    We live in Colorado, so we are diligent about the No Coats In The Carseat Rule! It gets SUPER cold here in the winter but it’s ridiculous how unsafe it is to buckle a child in with their coats on. It’s just not worth it.

  5. Brooke R. on September 23, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    We have ours checked by our local fire dept. No coats!

  6. Jammie on September 23, 2013 at 6:50 am

    We make sure the buckles are working properly and when we are driving they’re to be sitting and buckled!

  7. Elizabeth B on September 22, 2013 at 6:28 pm

    I take coats off my kids in the carseats and make sure the top latch of the 3-point harness is at their armpits.

  8. Stephanie Larison on September 21, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    I did the rear facing as long as possible since it’s the safest.

  9. Jean on September 21, 2013 at 6:16 pm

    We did extended rear-facing and have used five-point harnesses as long as possible.

  10. christine jessamine on September 20, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    I always make sure they are buckled properly

  11. Abby on September 19, 2013 at 7:48 pm

  17. Kristie on September 17, 2013 at 9:18 am

    Always make sure belts are securely fastened before leaving to go anywhere!

  25. Jessica w on September 13, 2013 at 7:30 am

    having a car seat that fits correctly, always making sure they are buckled in correctly, and getting a good car seat in the first place

  26. kim on September 13, 2013 at 6:02 am

    Make sure he is in the backseat and in his seatbelt. I also try to bring something to keep him occupied so he stays calm

  27. Brandy W. on September 12, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    I tend to be a bit paranoid (or maybe OCD…) so I always triple check to make sure that everything is correct and buckled snug!

  28. April Brenay on September 12, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    no jackets when buckled, just blankets 🙂

  29. Carol on September 12, 2013 at 3:38 pm
