Safe Ride 4 Kids' Tummy Shield With studies showing auto crashes as the largest single cause of death for pregnant women and traumatic fetal injuries, it makes sense to protect that bump with a belt that secures over the thighs rather than across the belly or hips. Slip your existing seatbelt under the stainless steel hook to hold you securely in place. $149, Britax's Advocate ClickTight ARB Convertible Car Seat Three layers of side impact protection, an impact-absorbing base and steel frame offers baby maximum safety. It also in- cludes an anti-rebound bar, which reduces the risk of injury in the event of a crash. ClickTight tech and the Click-and-Snug Harness Indicator ensure brainless instal- lation and fit security at a glance. $469, Diono Monterey XT Booster Sometimes our little string beans blow past height/length limits while still needing protection for their small frames. This expandable high-back booster seat fits growing children from 40 lb to 120 lb. The adjustable headrest and deep, aluminum re- inforced sides are lined with energy absorbing EPS foam for side impact protection while the long seat bottom provides extra leg support. California laws states all children under the age of eight must be secured in a backseat car seat or booster. Increase Buy-In for your older-little ones by letting them pick their fave fashionably-heathered shade; teal, red, purple or the classic grey. $99, BOB Revolution Pro Stroller Maybe your tot takes to the trails more than the car? This premium jogging stroller sports a front wheel that can swap from stable (for jogging or rough ter- rain) or swivel, for easy maneuvering everywhere else including your car's trunk. Its hand-activated rear drum brakes also offer the best downhill control to master those beautiful OC ridges and bluffs, just pop up that extra-large UPF 50+ sun canopy and go. With a 70lb max weight, this could even become your fresh- air "school bus" through kindergarten. $500, Graco Extend2Fit 3-in-1 Car Seat The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children ride rear-facing until at least 2 years of age to drastically reduce injuries in the event of an accident, particularly in the head, neck and spine. This seat offers five inches of additional legroom for children to comfortably ride rear-facing longer, and accommodates up to 50lbs which is far higher than standard seats. $249, They Like to Move It, Move It If you have a "bye-bye"baby who loves to be on the go, we have the solutions to keep them safe wherever you roam.
