|Thumbs up for a new car seat - BeSafe iZi Up X3 #CarseatFullstop|
We have had to deal with Little Miss being bullied about using a car seat, and this year I have had to insist again each time when other kids ride with us that they strap in. I always tell them that I don't want to be the one that tells their parents they flew past us through the window because they were not strapped in! They have to strap in before I drive off!
I have been following Mandy-Lee Miller's CarseatFullstop campaign, and it makes me even more aware of how vulnerable our children are when cars collide. The statistics are scary!

Little Miss has been complaining about her car seat. It is hard and uncomfortable! But she had to oblige us each time! I was so glad to see competitions going out through the #CarseatFullstop campaign, and have been signing up everywhere.
We won! Little Miss was ecstatic to hear that we had won the new BeSafe iZi Up X3 car seat through Cindy Alfinho's blog: When is it safe for your kid to just use a seatbelt? Thanks Cindy and CarseatFullstop and BeSafe! It's an awesome chair!

Little Miss had an evening of joy unpacking the car seat on Friday night. Most probably it was the box ;-), but she also could not wait strapping in the next day!
The BeSafe iZi Up X3 is comfortable, it's black (thumbs up!), and it's got side impact protection. It looks and feels much safer that the chair we had. It is also able to grows sideways with the back rests, head rests and shoulder width. Bonus: The chair is able to adjust in 2 sleeping positions. I wish we had the chair going down to the coast a few weeks back!A box is hours of play fun!— Karen du Toit (@karentoittoit) October 14, 2017
