Soft Gear Portable, Durable, Anti-Microbial Children's Products {My Booster Review & My Deluxe Changing Mat Giveaway}

Soft Gear logo
One stroll down the baby gear aisle can leave just about any new or veteran mom feeling a little bewildered.

But while the sheer number of products can be overwhelming, once you dig down into the practicality, comfort and durability of each of them, it isn't too difficult to eliminate quite a few. Changing mats that allow microorganisms to thrive, booster seats that have cracks for food to gather, place mats that have to be continually replaced...

Instead, it just makes sense to turn to the companies that understand the importance of making products that can easily fit your busy lifestyle. Which is where Soft Gear comes in, as they enable infants and toddlers alike to learn, play, eat, bathe and sleep in comfort, style and safety... all while producing their innovative items right here in the USA.

Soft Gear

Headquartered and manufactured in North Carolina, Soft Gear prides themselves on producing American-made children's products that are proven to be safe, comfortable and fun. With a range of anti-microbial products for various aspects of life, each one has non-slip surfaces to ensure your child's health and safety while keeping the germs away.

While I'm no longer looking for a place to safely and comfortably change a diaper or give my child a germ-free snooze, when the Soft Gear My Booster arrived, I already knew that Little Sister B would immediately claim it as her own.

Soft Gear My Booster review

Available in Blue, Pink, Espresso Brown and Mint Green, the My Booster is perfect for ages 3+ when your child no longer needs a high chair but is still a little too short to sit at the table in a regular chair.

While this is far from being the only booster seat on the market, Soft Gear has ensured that once you try theirs, the others won't compare. Even from the first glance at the handy carrying case, it's clear that the My Booster is a convenient, lightweight, germ and mold-resistant option to help your little one feel like a big kid.

Soft Gear My Booster

Right away I appreciated the My Booster's crisp, simple design and the way that the 3-D molded thermoplastic elastomer foam creates a cushion that is comfortable for kids while also being sturdy and easy to use and clean. With it all being one piece, you simply rinse or wipe it right down... or you can even stick it right in the dishwasher!

While the underside features two large suction cups to help hold the seat in place...

...the top includes more ways that Soft Gear included safety and comfort into this product.

The hand holds on each side make it easy for kids to grab on, climb up, and get situated on their own, while the leg cut-outs allow the whole thing to slide easily under the table.

Soft Gear My Booster seat

The end result is a non-absorbent, non-allergenic, anti-microbial seat that can be used just about anywhere and everywhere. Parents can relax knowing that the My Booster is mold-, mildew- and fade-resistant, while their little one can happily sit right at the table with the rest of the family.

Sometimes a little too happily, perhaps?

Soft Gear's My Booster retails for $34.99 and can be purchased from Amazon.com, Target.com and Diapers.com. No matter if it is used at home, brought to a restaurant, toted to Grandma's house or packed for vacation, the versatility and durability will make this a well-used item for quite a few years!

From infancy and beyond, Soft Gear has the innovative, American-made products that you can trust and depend on to make life with children just a little bit easier. And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be prepared to start their newborn off in the right direction, because...

One lucky person will win a My Deluxe Changing Mat from Soft Gear!
