My Review of the Cosco High Back Booster Car Seat

We recently had to purchase new car seats as our little boy has outgrown his infant car seat and our daughter isn’t quite big enough for a regular booster seat just yet. When our daughter outgrew the infant car seat we went with a convertible car seat to keep her rear-facing for the recommended requirements then forward-facing until she was ready for a booster seat. So when the time came we decided to purchase new car seats (for each of our vehicles) for our daughter. To share my personal experience here is my Cosco car seats review.

*Always check the latest car seat recalls to ensure your child’s safety. We will never review or recommend products that are currently on recall; however a product we’ve mentioned may become recalled after the time the article was written. Always register your car seats as well as other infant gear after purchasing to get updates from the manufacturer should your product become recalled.

Cosco High Back Booster Car Seat

One of the reasons I chose this car seat is because of its slender design compared to some of the other brands that I liked. I have a car and space is a little tight to have two bulky car seats in the back seat so a slender design was one of the major selling points that lead to our buying decision. That next to safety features, of course which is the number one priority. I’ve listed below some of my favorite qualities and not-so-favorites with the Cosco High Back Booster car seat.

The #1 Thing To Consider In A Baby Activity Gym

Your baby’s activity gym needs to rest flat on the floor. What do I mean? It should either be a free-standing structure or have a flat mat underneath. An activity gym over an infant lounge pillow, foam wedge, activity chair or other infant positioner is NOT best for baby’s development.

One of the biggest developmental needs your baby has from the moment he exits the womb is to MOVE. Infant positioners, pillows, and chairs restrict your baby’s freedom of movement and limit the sensory inputs he gets.
