My Experience and Impressions:
I am super excited to share this review product with you!!! To be totally and completely honest this is one of my most favorite “baby” item product reviews I have EVER gotten to do! The TotSeat is an awesome little on the go, pack in your diaper bag, super easy to use and works for any situation portable booster seat for your baby/toddler.
My little guy’s name is Kyron. He is 15 months old but only weights 13 lbs…so he is as active and crazy as a toddler but tiny like a 6 month old baby…so I feel like in doing this review I was able to test out it’s capacity for a pretty wide range of baby stages.
In trying out this TotSeat I have found that the best feature of this product is that it folds up compact enough to fit easily in my diaper bag so I can keep it with me at all times (in case of the unexpected) and always feel prepared for whatever fun adventure life brings us with a toddler who MUST be restrained while eating and sitting. For example, I went to church this last Sunday and didn’t even realize we were doing a surprise potluck lunch right after the service in honor of our pastors birthday…well all the other mom’s were busy chasing their toddlers through the chaos of the multitude of people eating their food…or trying to balance holding their baby on their lap while eating…I was sitting comfortable while my little guy sat secure in his TotSeat! It was AMAZING! By the end of the potluck I had several mom’s asking me about the neat little seat my baby was sitting in and asking how can they could get one too!!!
Another great feature to the TotSeat is that it is easily adjustable in multiple ways. First of all, it fits pretty much ANY chair design or style out there I tried it on 3 totally different chairs and as long as the chair has some sort of back to it…your TotSeat will most likely work. Secondly, the TotSeat adjusts in size according to how big your baby is…which for me was the biggest perk ever! Since Kyron is the size of a 6 month old baby we find it hard to find tools for him that are appropriate with his age but will fit him in size! This is not to say that the TotSeat will only work for a small kid…because my girlfriend has an 18 month old that is HUGE I mean he is a big guy…and she borrowed it and guess what it worked great for her too! Even better neither of our little boys who can maneuver to a stand in pretty much any device they are put in (seriously there isn’t a booster, high chair, cart out there with buckles that will keep my little man from standing up) and for once he was comfortable and totally restrained so he could not stand up in his seat! PLUS he loved being in his TotSeat…no fights or struggles! PRAISE JESUS…it was actually one of the most rewarding feelings….being able to be out with my friends at church and not constantly fearing if I turn my head for one second he was going to be able to stand up and fall off his chair. 🙂
Finally, the last thing that I absolutely adored about the TotSeat…it is machine washable! So we all know how extremely messing babies can be. But with soft clothe booster seat can just be tossed in the washing machine…wash on cold and dry (I hang dry mine). So easy!
Now I do have to be honest there was just one down side to the Totseat…because my little guy is so small he was too low at the table to eat comfortably (his face was pretty much below the edge of the table) but that problem can be easily solved by sitting baby on booster seat first…or in my case I just sat him on his diaper bag (or a big book under him) and made him a bit taller (I am not promising that my method was the most safe method but it is what I had and it worked just fine) 🙂
