Mommy Must Haves

Mifold Grab-and-Go Booster Seat

This super-compact and safe booster seat is a must for every mom in the car. It folds up and fits into a child's backpack or even a glove compartment and works differently – instead of boosting the child up to meet the belt, it pulls the belt down into the perfect position for your child. It's ideal for a second car, play dates, carpools, vacation travel or whenever you need to unexpectedly transport a child. The durable seat can be installed in seconds and pops into the dishwasher when it gets grungy. A must-have for every mom who knows that back to school means lots of time in the car! Age 4+. $45 Available at Nordstrom and online.
