Holiday Travel: The Car Seat You Didn’t Know You Needed

TakingTheKids RSS - Wed, 11/30/2016 - 03:30

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, millions of American families will hit the road for the holidays. 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 little 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 holiday season. The Tummy Shield™ is the ONLY crash-tested pregnancy seat belt that protects an unborn baby in the event of an accident 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 healthcare provider-recommended design ensures the belt stays firmly in place without any slippage or dangerous slack. It is also perfect for new moms still recovering from a C-section or anyone who has recently undergone abdominal surgery. MSRP: $149
