Thanksgiving Travel: The Car Seat You Didn’t Know You Needed
In less than a month, millions of American families will hit the road for the Thanksgiving holiday. According to AAA, more than 40 million people will travel at least 50 miles to visit family and friends. Nine out of ten travelers will drive to their destination. While safety is always top of mind for parents, there is one car seat you may not even realize you need.
It isn’t just the littles ones in the backseats that need to stay safely strapped in during a road trip. Expectant mothers also need to stay safe while in the car this Thanksgiving. The Tummy Shield™ is the ONLY pregnancy seat belt that protects an unborn baby in the event of a crash by effectively redirecting the seat belt away from the pregnant belly.
The patented design secures the seat belt at the legs, not the belly or hips. The crash-tested design ensures the belt stays firmly in place without any slippage or dangerous slack. It is perfect for new moms still recovering from a C-section or anyone who has recently undergone abdominal surgery. MSRP: $149 Available online at www.saferide4kids.com.
Flying to your destination this Thanksgiving and don’t want to lug around a bulky car seat? The RideSafer vest is the perfect alternative to the traditional booster seat or the forward-facing, 5-point harness seat. The certified RideSafer wearable car seat vest meets the same safety standards as traditional forward-facing options, but is lightweight, portable and easily transfers from one car to another. The RideSafer vest is easy to install in any car, just as safe as a traditional car seat, and is made to fit children from 3-years-old and up. MSRP: $149-$159.
