We are just now getting settled back into our regular life after our cruise and I'm so happy to be sharing something cool, via this sponsored conversation, that has opened new doors for us when traveling… The BubbleBum car seat booster in a bag.

Cruising into San Francisco you can't help but get excited to see this vibrant city!

We've visited many times before but each time we experience it in a new and different way. The people, the food, even the weather always provides us with a new adventure. This time we had decided that we would stay close to the cruise ship since we wouldn't have access to a car… and most importantly the little ones booster car seat.

Even though she is very tall, she is still only five years old… so she is still in a booster car seat and will be for many years to come. We thought about just bringing her regular seat with us, but it's big and bulky and I couldn't see lugging it along while trying to watch three kids and all the other luggage so we just accepted that we wouldn't get to do what we normally do. We were still thrilled just to be back in San Francisco… and for the cruise itself of course!

Then we learned about BubbleBum!

It's the first inflatable car booster seat that easily inflates and deflates in seconds and weighs less than 1 lb. It's ideal for daily carpool and transportation, as well as road trips, car rentals, and taxis <— which is how we used it. It fit easily in Pete's backpack and left plenty of room for everything else we carry with us. It's so compact that you could fit three across if needed too! We have the black one, but there is a brand new pink chevron seat that I know my little one would love.

The BubbleBum is very easy to use.

You take it out of the bag, add air, and install. It took us less than 3 minutes to do it all!

Let's talk safety.

BubbleBum won GOLD in the 2014 National Parenting Publications Awards and was announced the IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) “Best Bet” in their booster seat evaluation report, where they’ve branded BubbleBum as one of the best for safety.

Thanks to BubbleBum we were able to explore the city we love and enjoy this amazing dinner!

  1. This is probably the best option for a car booster I have ever seen. I love that you can get them in cute prints for your little one, definitely makes them happier to use it.

  2. My son has come out of the booster seat but that sure like a great seat. Anyway, hope we get to see San Fran somebody. Love those views!

  3. I love the concept behind the bubble bum (and its fun to say). I also love that it comes in pink for little girls so cute!

  4. This is by far one of the best boosters I have seen! It looks so comfortable and I love that it is very quick and easy to set up.

  5. We have the Bubble Bum, and it is great for travel. So much easier to keep our kids safe without all the bulk of a traditional car seat.

  6. The cruise adventure pics you have been sharing has encouraged me to look into cruising from SF! I love this city and I think my family will enjoy a vacation similar to the one you had! 🙂

  7. I love that I can throw it in the trunk to have at the ready when a niece or nephew joins us unexpectedly!
