Soft Gear - a company you can count on for practical, well-designed baby/toddler products, sent me this booster seat for review. What I like about it is the fact that it gives to the body of the child.

The way my Montessori teacher training changed my life - so that I'm always looking at things from a child's perspective - I can't help but think how much more comfortable a cushy booster like this would be than a hard plastic one.

Also, from a safety standpoint, less likely to shift around on a hard chair.

And best of all - American made!

Gonna tuck this one away for the expectant parents I mentioned before - sorry, gotta keep you guessing until I get permission to say something :)

But in the meantime, Soft Gear has promised a booster seat just like this to each of two winners at MommyLife.  Leave a comment for a drawing 9/10, telling me a little something about the child you plan to sit in this seat.

I would love to win this for my nephew, Joseph, who will be turning 3 in November. He is the sweetest child, and he has responded so well to the Montessori methods my sister uses with him. He is usually happy and easy going, and he is so much fun to be around. He notices everything, and he copies everything, too, even the gestures of their priest from daily Mass ;).

I have a 2 (very close to 3) year old that likes to sit at the school table but is too small and is pretty much finished with her high chair. This looks like a great booster seat for her!

This would be perfect for my two-year-old grandson and, eventually, his little brother or sister who'll be entering the world in December!

We would love this for our growing family.

My little one is only a month and already likes to sit up and not lay down so I can see me needing this in the future.

This seat would be so much fun for my 3 year old who thinks he is a grown up like mommy and dada!

We have a 2 year old who needs something swuishy for his tushie--maybe it would help him stay seated at the dinner table ;-) He turned 2 yesterday and is an amazing snuggler and little brother. He's grown into the role of big brother too, and kisses the newborn empathetically whenever she cries.

She'll grow into the booster too, eventually!

I wish I had had this whne my son and grandaughter karleigh recently visited in Texas with relatives. I love it!

Looks good~!

I would use this for my 2.5 yr old because she is tired of sitting on phone books while at the table. We have an old pew for seating for all the kids but she sits too low and this booster would help her out a lot. I love the fact that it wouldn't slip too!

My 2-year-old would do great using this instead of sitting up on his knees.

We're trying for a baby now, and my good pal is expecting, so we'd love to use this. :)

Would love this for my adorable grandson. He is a very smart 17 month old and is way beyond his age level. He really doesn't like the high chair and I think this would make life much easier on mommy. They are a struggling young couple and mommy trying to be a stay-at-homer. So this would be a true blessing to receive as a gift for her.

We would love this - and it would be used by 3 kiddos (at least!) Matthew, our petite little 5yo with an extra chromosome, still needs a booster at the table. His little brother, Jesse (3yo), and baby sister Mikayla when she gets bigger.

My 3 year old son is ALL about his independence lately. He loves booster seats when we (rarely) go out to eat. He would love to have this at home.

I would love this!

Posted by: Eileen | September 1, 2012 9:52 AM

This would be great when my God-son visits!

Oh, I would LOVE to win this one! My littlest boy currently uses a hard plastic one, which seems uncomfortable to me (though he doesn't complain, but imagine if he knew better! haha). I'd love to give him this cushy seat to sit in instead, and I'm guessing he would love it more than I would!
Thanks for the giveaway!

This looks exactly like what I've been looking for for the table! Fingers crossed! Thanks, Barbara!

I've been avoiding buying a booster seat for my 3 year old, instead keeping him in a high chair. He is so ready to be out, and his sister is so ready to move into that.

Posted by: Sheila | September 2, 2012 2:23 PM

My son is starting to get to the age where he needs to transition from a high chair to a booster seat... so please include me!

My daughter LOVES her new seat!! she carts it with her around the house and I have often found her reading to her stuffed animals while sitting in it on the floor. My older kids are a tad jealous. But I am mpressed with the materials used because it seems very durable. It seems as if this is the perfect "step up" from using the Bumbo. I love it! Thanks so much for giving us the opportunity for this Barbara!
