Summer Family Travel Safety Essentials Guide GiveawayTravel With Young Kids One Savvy Momm

Whether your taking to the friendly skies this summer, or your headed out on an epic road-trip with the family, get there safe! If you have young children, don't leave home this Summer without the essentials.

Our top summer travel safety essentials picks for families include:

  1. BubbleBum: Have you seen/heard of this genius inflatable booster seat? This award winning safety seat is super travel friendly! It inflates and deflates easily in just seconds. It also includes a handy travel pouch. The BubbleBum rolls up when deflated, and easily stows away in your carry on, making it the perfect travel companion for children ages 4-11 (40-100 lbs) . We think that this booster would be perfect for carpool, and for city dwellers who frequently use Taxi services as well. Just stash the BubbleBum in your child's backpack, and they're set! We love the great price point! It retails at just $34.99.You can find the BubbleBum at select retailers nationwide and online at
  2. CARES Airplane Safety Harness: Truth? When my oldest was an infant, I traveled quite a bit with him, and always as a "lap sitter." Now, I know better. What would happen to your precious cargo if something were to happen? They would be completely unguarded. I'm a firm believer in having a airplane approved infant seat for younger children or the CARES Airplane Safety Harness for older children on-hand {at all times} when taking to the friendly skies. The CARES Airplane Safety Harness couldn't be more convenient either. It easily secures to the airplane's existing safety belt / seat-back and provides additional {more adequate} security for young travelers. The CARES Airplane Safety Harness is recommended for children ages 1 & up, that weigh 22-44 lbs. We love that CARES stows quickly in the included storage pouch, and that it weighs in at just 1 pound! The CARES Airplane Safety Harness retails for $74.95,  and can be found at select retailers nationwide, and online at: 
  3. MyBuckleMate: "Buckle-up!" The first words out of my mouth every time we get in the car. Seat belts are non-negotiable; they're essential. Period.  It can be hard for kids to locate the buckle when the car has recessed buckles though, and it can also present a problem when your vehicle has buckles that flop or lay on the seat. MyBuckleMate ensures that there are no deterrents to kids' buckling up, by making the buckles accessible each and every ride. This handy device snaps easily around the base of the seat belt buckles (they take mere seconds to install), and holds them upright, making it easy for children to secure their own seat belt. MyBuckleMate is an absolute essential when hitting the road this summer! We love that they come in 2 packs and that they're affordably priced, at just $14.99. You can find MyBuckleMate at select retailers nationwide and online at:
  4. A Stash of Essentials: Pack a bag or container that includes; sun screen (for the kids and adults), a small first aid kit (we love the mom-invented MediBuddy kits), a thermometer, and pain reliever/fever reducer. You just never know what might come up when your away from home, and it's always better to be prepared!
  5. Brica Roll n' Go Carseat Transporter: Traveling with infants/toddlers can be difficult. Lugging the car seat through the airport really isn't anyone's idea of a good time but, it's necessary. The Brica Roll n' Go Carseat Transporter makes it easier to transport your little one AND their carseat through the airport, by turning your carseat into a stroller (supports up to 60 lbs.). The push button wheels on the Brica Roll n' Go fold flat making it a cinch to store in overhead compartments too! The Brica Roll n' Go Carseat Transporter retails for $79.99 and can be found at select retailers nationwide.

Where are you headed this summer? Wherever you're travels take you, we're wishing you an amazing safe season, filled with quality time with the ones you love!
