Review: Summer Travel Booster Seat
The way I blog and the things I share has changed fairly drastically over the past 6 months. I found myself completely overwhelmed by reviews and sponsored posts and I didn't like the direction my blog was taking; the posts I had to get published were piling up and the motivation to write them simply wasn't there. The family memories and parenting anecdotes however were rife and I was simply trying to squeeze them in-between the other stuff.
I've since pretty much swapped the two around, focusing on sharing the things we've been up to and the photos I want to ensure are kept safe, only agreeing to work with the brands that are important to us as a family, the products we really really want to use, that though we may be sent or reimbursed for, I think others would love to be aware of them just as much as we enjoy trying them out.
The one product we really needed but didn't have with Archie was a portable highchair; most places do supply them but we often find that some are just awful with terrible restraints that baby just won't fit properly into without slipping all over the place. This one by Summer has been handy, mainly for impromptu BBQ's (yay for actual warm weather!), and it folds down when not in use, with the tray sliding behind to create a sort of compartment to keep spoons/bibs/your sanity in.
It's pretty simply to attach to any chair; use the long straps to clip it around the back of the chair and underneath, you can adjust the length of the straps to fit most chairs (we haven't come across one yet it doesn't fit) but it is a bit of a pain to loosen or tighten. It's easy to wipe down and keep clean and buckles baby in safely, pretty much all you want or need from a travel booster seat.
There's only one thing I hate more than feeding a baby, and that's feeding a baby whose on-the-move and completely disinterested in what you're offering when there's a chewed up old lolly stick within view, so our booster seat has been integral in avoiding such hideous situations; thank you Summer Infant (for the booster seat) and Summer weather (for the lovely high temperatures—please don't leave yet)!
