#Safety1st Travel Safety #Giveaway

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on January 19, 2014

It is super important to travel safely with your kiddos. With the help of Safety 1st, we have always been well prepared for a quick trip to the grocery store or a long day trip.

The Elite 80 3-in-1 car seat is one of the best on the market, in my opinion. With it’s super-extended weight range, this seat is the only one you will need for your kiddo, from infancy to toddlerhood and beyond*, making it well worth the price. With Air Protect + I know my baby is well protected.

Air Protect + combines the advanced protection of our Air Protect® cushion system with patented GCell HX™ foam designed with hexagonal shapes for superior protection around the torso. TOGETHER they provide full body side impact protection. 

With the Just-in-Case Storage Station we stay well organized while on the go. The best part is that it secures safely to the floor of the vehicle, so – in the horrible case of an accident – things stay put.

Keeping an eye on baby while driving is made possible with the Front or Back BabyView Mirror. The mirror clips to the visor for forward-facing kiddos, and attaches to the rear window for rear-facing babies.

What makes your ride with Baby safe?

I use a Safety 1st carseat to keep my son safe in the car. We had to get a new one after we were in a car accident in November. (Car was totalled – he was okay, thank goodness! I’m still dealing with some stuff, unfortunately. But we did manage to walk away from the accident.). At any rate, we could definitely use an extra car seat for my husband’s car!

I always make sure my kids are safely harness/buckled and that everything is adjusted correctly.

We keep our children safe by making sure everyone is buckled before the car is moving and we check to ensure belts are all tight enough.

We have 3 in car seats or boosters. We always double check the straps fit well and the seats are secure

I keep my baby safe by making sure she’s rear facing (she’s almost 2yrs old and still doesn’t mind it) and secure her properly in her car seat. I go to our local firehouse to have them check that the car seat is properly installed whenever I have to remove the car seat when I switch cars . I also make sure I keep her happy while we are driving by singing songs and talking to her. I obey all the traffic laws too, no speeding here!

I make sure they are safe by never letting them ride in the front seat and the car seat is fitted well each time we get in the car.

We had our first baby this past year. He’s four months old now. We have him in a rear facing evenflo car seat. We also use window shades that show the temp changes by changing color and a mini rear view mirror to see him in his seat. Thanks for the chance to win in this give away!

My daughter is still rear-facing (she’s 18 months) and my son sits in the third row of seating in his car seat (he’s 3).

I always make sure my seat is secure, do not strap them in with a jacket, and ERF. Also keep the car free of things that can fly around.

We always make sure the seats are installed properly, and the straps fit as they should.

my baby is all grown up, but we have a ton of babies and toddlers in the family right now! it often means taking multiple cars everywhere we go, so they’re always in their own seats whenever possible. although these seats rarely leave their mom’s car, we all always double check that everything is secure and fitted properly before we go anywhere.

I keep my babies safe by having them in a car seat and rear facing until their car seat won’t work at their weight. But right now I have a new one and she is in an infant car seat and of course it is rear facing but it does expire in a few months.

I keep my baby safe on the road by keeping him rear facing. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

I keep my child safe on the road by keeping her in a 5 point harness seat even though she’s old enough for a high back booster. We sing the buckle up for safety song my aunt taught me as a child so she’s even the buckle police now. :) always buckled up!

We live in a cold climate and I do not buckle my child in the car seat with his winter coat on.

By extended rear facing! Our 2 year old is a small 27 pounds and still rear facing. I’m also a huge car seat safety freak in general, and have my 4 year old in a 5-point harness and my 7 year old in a high-backed booster (ONLY because he’s tall and outgrew his 5-point!)

I keep our babies safe on the road by making sure they are securely buckled and in the proper sized carseats and booster seats

I keep my babies safe in the car by making sure I’m not a distracted driver! I count on carseats to keep my kids safe, and my kids count on ME to be alert, awake, and aware! Our old Evenflo carseat has seen its fair share of “miles” with two older siblings, so it’d be great to have a new seat for our third baby!

I keep my kids safe in the car by making sure they are the right size/weight before moving up to a booster- not just b/c they’re the “right age”- esp since my kids are small.

We make sure all 3 kids are properly buckled before the car starts moving, and make sure that we are driving safely
