A Giveaway Addicted Mommy Review

Snazzy Baby Travel Chair/Knee Pads Giveaway
When I had Nathan, 2 other family members were having
babies so there were always playpens, swings and high
chairs at every family gathering. No need to travel with half
your house each family gathering. However, this time around
(15 years later) we are the only ones with babies so again
we need a small trailer to carry all the kids stuff to each
Luckily we now have a Snazzy Baby Travel Chair which has
made life so much easier! It can turn an ordinary chair into a
temporary restraint system so you
can feed your child or use it in a
shopping cart instead of using
those (disgusting) simple and not-so-safe straps some come with. We
use it whenever we go to a restaurant or to someone's home & it has
made for some much nicer meals since Jake is safe and secure (aka:
not running all over the place).
I didn't mention how incredibly light the Travel Chair is. At 7 ounces and
super compact, it fits in any diaper bag easily. I have even just thrown it
into my purse and it also has a built in strap so you can just throw it over
you shoulder as well. I was worried that something so light would not
contain my squirmy child but it did a fabulous job. To see it in action
Watch TDmonthly Video .
Snazzy Baby also carries Knee Pads for crawlers and early
walkers. While I did not have a chance to review these, they
did receive an iParenting
Media Award (as did the
Travel Chair!). The knee pads
are ergonomically designed for
flexibility and movement
without impacting circulation. Most of our house is covered in
carpet but I know most of my friends homes are either tile or wood
- these would be a must for a little one in those homes.

Momma in Flip Flops 2 Review

Snazzy Baby
My daughter is a stubborn little two year old and when it comes time for shopping, I dread to take her because she won't sit in the cart. She's always trying to escape
and now with two other children I can't always be holding her in. I know I'm not the only one with this problem, which can make shopping a very hard process and grocery shopping has to get done. I was excited to have the opportunity to use the Parenting Media Award Winner, My Baby's Own Deluxe Travel Chair from Snazzy Baby because it was designed not only to fit different types of chairs so you don't have to worry about bringing a highchair or booster wherever you go, but it also secures your child in a shopping cart. I really like it for the shopping cart, its all attached to a pouch so very easy to just toss the 7oz bag in your bag, pulls open easily and secures safely to the cart and then also has side and shoulder straps to keep your baby safe and secure. So far my daughter hasn't figured out how to get out of it and actually thinks it's "fun" since it's something new. Made for children up to 35 pounds and made of nylon and polyester with easy to machine wash. I also like the
feature that it has a non-slip bottom so it doesn't slide at all when put flat on a chair and your child is able to move around a big without actually standing up. Ladies, our problems may be solved and the Travel chair is available in either red or navy!

Snazzy Baby products were invented by an Australian mommy who wants best for baby. She has also developed Knee Pads to help product those little knees when crawling and
learning to walk. Keep them protected and don't let them get all scraped up and raw.
"These knee pads are ergonomically designed to allow for flexibility and movement without impacting circulation. In addition, Snazzy Baby knee pads are endorsed by medical professionals and can be used with children with special needs such as
hemophilia, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and muscular dystrophy." The knee pads are one size fits all (four months to four years) and available in starfish blue, princess pink, seafoam green and midnight blue. Read more about the Snazzy Baby.

Busy Mommy Review!

Snazzy Baby® My Baby’s Own Travel Chair
If you’ve ever taken a 1-year old to the restaurant you know that it has the potential to turn into a disaster. All of my kids have been able to easily wiggle out of the straps on restaurant high chairs, which means that they end up sitting in our lap while we try to keep little hands away from hot, messy food. This, of course, makes them angry which starts the screaming and flailing about that makes you wish you’d just stayed home after all. I’ve seen those foldable travel chairs that can be set up at the table, but I don’t like having carry around another bulky item while carrying a baby, diaper bag, purse, and keeping an eye on the other two little boys. So, when I was given the opportunity to try out the Snazzy Baby® My Baby’s Own Travel Chair I jumped on it. I thought to myself, “I can use that!”

Something small enough to carry in the diaper bag, easy to set up and put away, and keeps my baby safely secured when we are out is just what I needed. Convenient for Busy Moms This travel chair folds up into a small pocket on it’s back, so it won’t take up much room in a diaper bag, or you can use the strap to carry it on your shoulder. I prefer to just drop it in the diaper bag, because that’s one less thing to keep from sliding off my shoulder. When you need to use it simple pull it out of the pocket, snap the buckle around the back of a chair (or even a shopping cart!), sit your baby down, and buckle them up. And when you are done, just unbuckle it and fold it back up.Easy and Safe for Baby When I first saw all the buckles involved I thought it would be confusing, but it was surprisingly easy to get my baby all buckled up. There are buckles on each side and buckles over the shoulders. Just snap those together and adjust the straps to fit your baby and you are set! Plus
after the first time it’s easier because you already have the straps set to fit your baby.
Another worry I had was that I wasn’t sure a cloth seat would be able to hold my baby securely in a chair. I was afraid if he wiggled at all he’d fall over, but Snazzy Baby® was a step ahead of me. They make the travel chair with a non-slip bottom so the seat won’t slip around. The straps that hold the seat to a chair can be tightened to fit securely, and I had no problems with my baby wiggling around or falling over. He was snug and safe sitting on one of our dining room chairs. The Snazzy Baby® My Baby’s Own Travel Chair fits children up to 37 lbs and comes in navy or red. I am very happy with how easy and convenient it is to use. It has come in handy at lunchtime in my home because I babysit other toddlers and only have one high chair. Every on-the-go mom needs one of these travel seats!

Flying Giggles Review

Snazzy Baby's My Baby's Own Deluxe Travel Chair
Review and Giveaway

Have you ever been in a situation where you did not have a high chair
or booster seat for your little one? There were many times I was out
and about and found myself at places, whether it was a friend's house
or a coffee house and I did not have a place for Chloe to sit, except on
my lap. Chloe is getting to the age where she wants to be more
independent. She wants to be like her big sister, sitting on a big girl
chair. Plus, sitting on my lap does not really work well during feedings. Snazzy Baby has come up with a perfect solution, My Baby's Own Deluxe Travel Chair a portable high chair seat that fits little ones up to 35 pounds.
You are probably familiar with other travel boosters that are "portable", you can take them with you to restaurants, grandma's house or anywhere else you
are on the go. Snazzy Baby's Travel Chair is so much better, because it is ultra-portable!
It is made of material, so it folds up very small and fits right into
the attached bag, weighing less than 7 0z. You can store it in your diaper bag or keep it in the trunk of your car so you will always have it when you need it. I love how easy it is to use,simply buckle the straps around the back of a chair or
shopping cart seat and then secure your child with the side and shoulder straps.
I will never forget the time I was at Target. Chloe was in the shopping cart, I was looking at something for what seemed like 2 seconds, when I turned back to the cart, Chloe was standing on the seat with a look-what-I-can-do-mom! expression on her face. My heart stopped beating and from that day on, until I received Snazzy Baby's Travel Chair, those ickyyucky straps that have probably never been washed, secured my
daughter. I know, I am a nut, I would take spray sanitizer and spray those things down, but I could not risk having her tumble out of the cart! With the travel chair, I now just come home, throw it in the wash and let it line dry. With the travel chair, I no longer have to worry about Chloe's cool and very dangerous shopping cart tricks and she is comfortable while being secure in her seat. I am not the only one who loves Snazzy Baby's My Baby's own Deluxe Travel Chair, it is an iParenting Media Award winner forbest baby gear. You can view the video of the travel chair from
the ABC expo:Watch TDmonthly Video Buy It! You can purchase Snazzy Baby's My Own Travel Chair at Snazzy Baby's website for $34.99 or you can purchase it through Amazon.

An Island Life Review

Snazzy Baby Travel Chair Giveaway
One of the reasons I prefer not to take my kids out to eat when they’re young is the fact that I can’t stand those high chairs and booster seats that the restaurants provides. Half the time the safety straps are broken or the chair is dirty. Not to mention the germs that are crawling all over them. Yuck!
That’s why I was particularly interested in My Baby’s Own Travel Chair from Snazzy Baby.
Your home for the best in innovative baby protection products, Snazzy Baby was created by Australian mom Cyndy Mundy who needed to protect her tot’s tender knees after another day of crawling on thecarpet. The award-winning company has impressed online and brick and mortar retailers with snug, soft,4 layer cushioned oval knee pads made of neoprene and secured with velcro straps and ensuring a comfortable fit. iParenting Media Awards have praised each one of their products as they’ve come to
We received My Baby’s Own Travel Chair to review and I was very
impressed with how compact it is. Everything comes tucked inside an
attached pocket (7″ x 5″) for easy storage and transport. It’s also lightly
padded for comfort, light weight, and made from a nylon-type material for
easy cleaning. Setting it up was easy. I just took the back strap and attached it behind the chair. There are also adjustable shoulder and side straps to keep your child safe, secure, and in place. Kaila is a little too young yet to use this chair since she can’t even hold her head up. So I decided to put Hello Kitty in it just to give you an idea of how the travel chair works. As you can see, HK is pretty secure
in there with the shoulder and side straps secured.However, what I liked best about My Baby’s Own Travel Chair is that when you’re done all you need to do is roll everything up and tuck it inside the attached case. I remember using more bulky high
chair/shopping cart covers with my other daughters and it was always a pain to get everything stored when it was time to leave. I would end up just throwing the whole thing into the car and vowed to pack it up properly later. Of course, I never did. In addition, with all the other baby gear that I need to tote along the last thing I
need is more bulk. So, if you’re worried about germs, safety, and portability when dining or shopping with your child, you owe it to yourself to check out My Baby’s Own Travel Chair. It sells for $34.95 from Snazzy Baby.

Petit Elfant Reviews the Travel Chair

A travel seat for babies.
It's been a while since I've traveled with babies, but I well
remember the hassle of hanging out in a restaurant that didn't
have a high chair. It can be kind of a headache, no?
Snazzy Baby Travel Chair
Check out this super compact travel chair you can throw into the
diaper bag, carry on, or even your purse {if you travel with life
sized purses like myself} and carry with you into the restaurant
for your own ensured baby seat.
Love it.
