You know how it goes—you’re on the road, in traffic, keeping an eye on directions and from the backseat you hear a little voice asking for drinks, snacks, books, crayons and more (you chose!). Most parents try their best to toss back a needed item or search around the backseat one-handed for the dropped item at a time when you shouldn’t be distracted and focusing on the road.
Just in time for National Child Passenger Safety Month (September 14-20), our friends at Kinsights have nailed down the ultimate list of travel items we like to call the Child Passenger Safety Pack which includes helpful safety products along with research and parent recommendations to help you keep your eyes on the road instead of worrying about your child demands from the back seat while also keep your child as safe as possible while traveling.
