One of the perks of being a influencer is trying out new products especially when the product is already something you love and are using. I was so excited when Dino wanted to work together because my oldest has been using the Diono’s Monterey XT Expandable High Back Booster Seat  for over a year now and loves it so when they reached out I knew this partnership would be a authentic and perfect fit. Recently my son turned 4 which in Ontario means he can now move to a booster seat as he meats all the requirements and so naturally he has been asking when he can get a “big boy” car seat like his sister. Well you can watch the little video below of the day he received his.

There are really so many reason I love this booster seat. First of all I love the look it is sleek looking and I am able to fit all three of my car seats across the back of my SUV. The material is a great fabric with rich colour and easy to wipe off. This booster seat and lay flat for storage and you can also remove the high back to make it into a backless booster once your little one no longer needs the added support. This booster seat fits children 18 – 54 kg (40 lb to 120 lb) and 97 – 160 cm (38″ to 63″) in height. With one hand you can adjust the headrest to 11 different positions. Another amazing feature is the built in  cup/snack holders that is retractable and can fold out of the way when not needed. The booster also has an angled seat bottom which prevents submarining and a longer seat bottom which give the little person proper leg support. I not only have one but two very happy little ones who love to ride in their Diono Monterey XT Expandable High Back Booster Seat so I genuinely  have no complaints and can’t suggest enough this seat if you are in the market for a booster seat.

One thing you may not have know if your like me is that Diono offers more than just car seats. They actually have some really great accessories as well and I have been lucky enough to be able to try some of them out. One of the products I have tried and now love and think every person with forward facing little people absolty NEEDS is the stuff ‘n scuff mat! This matt is saving the back of my seats and looks amazing while doing so! The mat has a strap that goes around the headrest of the seat in front and has securing clips to go under the bottom of the seat. It even has little pocket that the top to stick things in and um best part it under $10! Seariously with all the wet weather we’ve had and muddy shoes and boots my seats are perfectly protected thanks to my stuff ‘n scuff matt which I can easy wipe off as well.

The other great accessory I have been using and loving from Diono is their warm ‘n go deluxe bottle warmer. We are a busy family on the go often and there is nothing worse than being stuck in traffic or in the car somewhere and baby needs to eat and I have a cold bottle and no way to warm it. This bottle warmer is made with stretch neoprene and a unique heating element design.  The stretchy neoprene allows for this warmer to fit any shape bottle – even tapered ones. The warmer fits cup holders or  it can hang from the dashboard.  To heat up your bottle simply plug the warmer into any 12V socket. Features include a power indicator light and a thermal fuse to prevent overheating. The warm ‘n go works up to 50% faster than other brands!

A HUGE thank you Diono for partnering with us we love the accessories and booster seat! If you would like to see some of the other products Diono offers feel free to check out their site here!

  • On days I have a flare up getting up and out of bed is hard enough much less take care of my 4 sweet kiddos ... so thankful today for this sweet girls snuggles and an amazing husband who takes care of all the things I can’t on days like today ... you’re the mvp @tspinksy
  • I’m not here to get political but just to say we are thankful for the amazing teachers we have in our lives! My kiddos were asking questions about the strike yesterday and so in an age appropriate way I explained what I could to them and Gray quietly escaped and came back some time later with this sign she had made and asked to join her teacher today walking the picket line with her sign (and her little sister followed suit) ... we can differ on what side of this political issue we stand but I will say some of the BEST people I know are teachers and they love their students and want to provide the safest and most positive environment for their students to learn! I couldn’t do their job but I am thankful for them and their love for my kiddos because let’s face it, a teacher who doesn’t make school a fun, safe and loving environment will produce children who don’t love and enjoy school and therefore lack a desire to learn! Thank you to @barrett.kim  @melissa_a_stark @heidi_sawatzky  Kristy Patton Tricia Orchard Melissa Marshall Stephanie Hodgson for all you do day in and day out on the day’s even when it’s hard you show up and do the best you can! I’ll admit we feel like we’ve been spoiled with each of you playing a role my babies lives we are blessed to know each of you!
  • Because calories don’t count on your birthday ... and one is an apple so it’s healthy 😉
  • What if you woke up tomorrow and knew it was your last day? What would you do? Who would you call? What would you say?  It shouldn’t take a tragedy for each of us to be reminded what a gift each day is - it’s not promised to us it’s not earned or deserved it’s a gift but how we spend our time with who we spend it with is our choice. Reevaluate what and who is important ... say I love you more, forgive quickly and live life to the fullest!
  • Needed coffee but was sweating after my little incident (see stories) so went to my trusty summer coffee order - it was delish even if it was freezing cold outside!
  • He really wanted a picture with me #not 😂 after a busy weekend we had a few slow minutes while the big kids played outside he watched football and I got my snuggles! Going to bed feeling blessed and ready to take on the new week!👊🏻💪🏻
