Every parent knows that arranging booster car seats when you travel with kids can be a reoccurring hassle. They are big and clunky to have to carry along and it can be difficult to fit three booster car seats into a car’s back row. Whether hopping on a plane or just trying to do carpool or have a playdate with an extra child, booster car seats (or lack thereof) can quickly become a source for concern. As summer travel season is approaching, many parents need an easier solution. That is why I am happy to partner with BubbleBum– an inflatable travel booster car seat that comes in a small bag for easy transport, blows up easily with just your mouth in under a minute, and it meets booster seat requirements so you can rest assured your child will be comfortable and safe.
Bubblebum Amazing Inflatable Travel Booster Car Seat
BubbleBum is the world’s first inflatable car booster seat and it has been around since 2010 with growing popularity. It is such a game changer! Bubblebum car booster seat was originally designed as a vacation solution, to avoid having to rent a booster seat or carry bulky boosters on the airplane or check them as cargo. It has been gaining in popularity as even more uses become apparent- handy for taxi/Uber/Lyft rides and handy to have in a grandparents glovebox so they don’t take up car seat space until they are needed. It is also great for carpooling both as an extra on hand seat or as an easy way to fit three booster car seats across the back seat.

The air filled design provides extra comfort and utilizes memory foam technology to help create stability and structural integrity in the seat. Side side clips correctly position the lap belt in order to help prevent seat belt abdominal injury in the event of a crash while the shoulder belt positioning clip ensures that the vehicle shoulder belt sits across the center of the chest.
Booster Seat Requirements

Booster Seat Age, Weight, and Height Guidelines
US and EU law varies slightly but it is best practice for your child is to remain in a booster car seat until the age of eleven AND/OR until they reach a height of 4 ft 9 inches. Never transition your child to a booster seat until at least the age of four AND weight of 40 lbs. and at least 35” tall. I hope that answers, “Who should use a booster seat?” As WebMD notes, “Booster seats improve the chances of survival over seat belts alone by 28%.”
