I can’t think of any child safety product more confusing and frustrating to parents than car seats. It’s not just a question of will it fit my car and be safe, but will my baby like it and be comfortable in it?
This past month, Regal Lager sent me a new booster seat that’s just become available in the US and, hands down, it’s the easiest and most comfortable booster seat I’ve run across (the comfort part was told to me by my daughter Hannah who’s using it!) It’s the Cybex Solution X-Fix HB Booster Solution X-fix and it’s already won four top awards in the most renowned European consumer tests. It’s intended for kids who are at least 3 years old, between 33 – 100 lbs and 38 to 60 inches in height.
Why do I like this booster seat so much? Let’s start with the fact that it is actually easy to install! It has Rigid LATCH connectors and LATCH guides so it literally slides into place – no more searching for the anchors that are always hidden between the seats that you practically break your fingers trying to reach! The other thing I love is that it has a three-position reclining headrest so when Hannah falls asleep she doesn’t slump over anymore (that always made me crazy!) From a safety perspective, it has 11 adjustable height settings so it will grow with your child and comes with Linear Side-impact Protection which minimizes the momentum of a side impact collision. This summer, I will be doing a summer tour, “The Safety Mom Hits The Road For Safety” where I’ll be travelling to Hershey Park with five kids in tow – you can be sure I’ll be using this booster seat!
