Keep your cuddlebug safe and snug on the road

These days, I seem to spend a lot of time ferrying my daughter from one place to another; my social butterfly has a far more hectic schedule than her dull mom! Luckily, I have a fabulous Britax carseat that leaves me confident she's as secure as she can be on our frequent car trips.

However, I do worry about how safe she'll be when she outgrows her car seat and has to transition to a booster seat. I've seen how easily booster seats can be jostled around, even when executing something as mild as a tight turn. When the lap belt becomes slack on a booster seat, stability is compromised and the child is at risk for injury.

Thanks to MomCentral, I've been alerted to a product that will safely secure a child in a booster seat to prevent potentially life-threatening injuries. SeatSnug provides an easy solution that will allow seatbelts to perform as intended. The small SeatSnug device attaches to an existing seatbelt and stops seatbelt slack from developing, thus ensuring that the child's seat is properly and safely secured during travel.

Once installed, SeatSnug is intended to stay on the seatbelt at all times, but it offers flexibility with it's "on-off" feature. The "on" position is used to safely secure a child in a booster seat, while the "off" position allows the seatbelt to function normally if it is not being used by a child in a booster seat.

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury for children, and the failure of seat belts to properly secure children is a leading contributor. SeatSnug is about "saving children's lives and reducing injuries one seatbelt at a time." Visit SeatSnug.com and learn how SeatSnug can help protect your cuddlebug in the car.
