My daughter’s always been little with both weight and height and that means she’ll likely be in a booster seat for longer than many of her friends. It’s important that her seat belt fits properly and that means we need a good high back booster. Chicco provides this great reminder for many of the common booster seat questions to ensure your child stays safe.

Chicco also asked me to share my thoughts on their new Chicco KidFit™ 2-in-1 Belt-Positioning Booster.
We’ve been using a Chicco KeyFit car seat for our new baby and have absolutely loved it. I was excited to try the Chicco KidFit™ 2-in-1 Belt-Positioning Booster for my six year old.
- DuoZone™ 10-position head and shoulder side-impact protection
- SuperCinch® LATCH attachment and tightener
- ErgoBoost™ contoured seat with double foam padding
- 2 removable cup holders fold away when not in use
- Removable, machine-washable seat pad and armrest covers
- 2-position backrest adjusts to mimic vehicle seat position
- Removable backrest for use as backless booster
The shoulder belt has a a guide to keep it positioned correctly and allows the belt to stay in place. It also makes the belt easy to grab when getting into the seat.
The DuoZone™ Side-Impact Protection puts KidFit™ has 10 positions of combined head and shoulder protection which grows with your children.
This high back booster is for children 30-100 lbs and can be used as a backless booster for children 40-110 lbs.
The Chicco KidFit Booster Seat has double foam padding and contoured ErgoBoost™ providing comfort and support where they need it most. My daughter thinks it’s comfortable.
The two soft-sided cup holders are removable for easy cleaning. With snacks and drinks in the car you’re bound to have sticky fingers. The seat pad and arm rest covers are removable and machine-washable.
This booster also features easy-to-use guides which keep the belt in place, reclining seat, and removable backrest for use as a backless booster.
Like other Chicco car seats, KidFit™ also features SuperCinch® LATCH attachment and one-pull tightener, which helps keep the seat in place for easy in/out. I love how secure this seat is in my vehicle and how easily it’s installed.
Motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death among children in the United States.1 Unfortunately, many parents do not utilize a booster seat, despite the fact that when used properly, they reduce the risk for serious injury by 45 percent for children four to eight years old when compared with seat belt use alone. 1
I have a Chicco KidFit™ 2-in-1 Belt-Positioning Booster to give away to one lucky reader!
Disclosure: I received a booster seat for review however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
