My wife and I bought a new mini-van (to replace our current mini-van) with middle bucket seats. My special needs son doesn't have 100% bladder control. Especially during long drive trips. Anyone try auto Car Seat Saver / Protector for themselves, for their other family members and/or their pets? If yes, what's your pros / cons and/or Lessons Learned on your product? Any feedback on product shown below? thanks.
I have not tried that, but i see some flaws unless your son is in a car seat or booster seat to keep it staying in place. If he is in a car seat it will probably work, but if he sits in the seat i think it would bunch up & move around too much
I have tried this (mine is in my car now & working great for over 8 years--went thru 3 collies & still in there for the beagle); www.chewy.com/solvit-waterproof-sta-put-hammock/dp/53697 It's made out of canvas & nothing has ever seeped thru it. It works great for the dogs because they 'jump' in & out of the car. However, my son got one thinking it would be great with kids too & he said it didn't work with humans because they sit & then sliiide into the seat & then wiggle around so the straps got torn up fast. It also does not have the padding though to keep car seats from putting 'dents' into the seat.
Last weekend, we bought 3 different car seat protectors (knowing we would return 2 of them). One was a water resistant thin material simple "slip over", one was a deep foam padding that sat on top and one was a design of both outer extremes. We tried ALL 3 and found the slip over with medium size "absorption" foam thickness padding worked the best. re: - click here -
Details: IMO, thick foam is a great `white board` design but it moved around on the seat too much. Especially when getting in / out of our high seat ground clearance mini-van. The thin material was water resistant but the liquid would roll off / onto the floor. re: It kept the bucket seat dry but the floor would get wet instead. The "between design" product that we found the best absorbed / held the water and its underside stuck to the seat surface really good. Thus, we kept it - returning the other 2 products. Sometimes buying the lower cost product is the best product in the long run. re: - click here -
Note: The medium thick foam works so great, we bought 2 for my son's bucket seat and 1 for my driver's seat. Thus, allowing me to keep the driver's seat clean and dry as well.
Hope this helps - if others are looking for similar product as well.
