Safe Travels + Diono Monterey Booster Seat Giveaway

A second car has done wonders for our adventuring.  Spontaneous plans are often easier; errands become quicker and inclement weather isn’t as cumbersome.  We are all enjoying the added benefits of “mama’s car”.

Like all parents, I want my children to be as safe as possible when traveling in vehicles.  I felt confident moving our well-loved Diono Radian RXT into my car for our five-year-old.  And when it was finally time to move our seven-and-a-half year old into a proper booster seat we went with the award-winning Diono Monterey Highback Booster.  Engineered to be the strongest and safest car seats available, Diono gives me added piece of mind.

Our little big girl couldn’t wait to transition to a booster seat. She’s petite and didn’t hit the 40-pound mark until second grade, so up until recently a five-point-harness was the safest choice for her.

I found the installation process for the Diono Monterey Booster Seat (designed to fit children 40 lb to 120 lb) to be a breeze.  An easy-to-adjust dial on the back adjusts the width of the seat to fit a child’s shoulders up to 20″ wide. The 11-position headrest provides solid flexibility (adjusting up to 6.5″ in height) with one hand for the most accurate fit. As a fixed-position booster, integrated LATCH connectors and front adjusters ensure secure installation in seconds (LATCH use is optional) and keeps the seat in position when not in use.

Our little-big-girl has proven to be very comfortable in her high-back booster seat.  I often wonder what’s going on in her creative mind as she looks out the window.  She absolutely feels a sense of maturity in her new booster seat and makes sure to always tuck a water bottle or toys into the seat’s retractable, dual cup holders.

Best of all, the seat is loaded with safety features: The adjustable head rest and deep, aluminum reinforced sides are lined with energy-absorbing EPS foam for side impact protection.  While the reinforced seat bottom provides extra lap belt safety, strengthening the Monterey and providing superior defense against crash forces.

When our daughter outgrows the high back mode of the seat, we can easily adjust it into backless booster mode.  We think the Diono Monterey Booster is an excellent choice for keeping bigs kids safe while traveling.
