Kyler Pretending to Sleep
Many people wonder how a child might sleep while using the Laptop. Kyler actually finds it quite comfortable and both my husband and I feel he actually sleeps better and looks more comfortable in his Laptop then in any of his belt positioning boosters. This picture was taken in March 2003
Justice in the Laptop
Justice is 5 years old, 45 inches tall and around 50 pounds. This picture was taken in June 2002.
Janae in the Laptop
This is my daughter Janae sitting in the Laptop. She is 3 1/2 years old and weighs 26-27 pounds and is 36 inches tall. She doesn't weigh enough to use this restraint in the car yet, but fits with in the height requirements. I thought I would take a picture to show how a child her height would fit in the Laptop. If she weighed 30 pounds, I think I would still prefer a 5 point system for her. However, if she weighed 30 pounds, I would use it in a pinch. Even under the reccomended weight limit, she still could not wiggle out of the restraint. I just don't think she'd be comfortable for very long. I also want to include that she is resting her chin on the top of the laptop. If she held her head up, she'd look more comfortable!
Please do not confuse this restraint with a shield booster seat. This restriant is very different from a shield booster in that it snugly holds a child AND the child is not boosted, but sitting on the vehicle seat while this restraint is fitted to them. Also, remember that not all children and vehicles are the same, so your experience of using this seat may be different from my own and others :-) This site is for informational purposes only. If you have any questions about this product, please contact the manufactuer.
