Anyone heard of Safety Sitter?

Bad_WifeJanuary 15, 2002

It is made by Ecology Kids (I never heard of them,either, and have yet to find their website). It is to keep your child in a shopping cart, without your child actually touching the shopping cart. My mom saw a lady using one and thought it was great. I've only seen one on ebay, and it was laid out flat not in a shopping cart position. Anybody ever use this, and have an opinion?

I have heard of it, but never used it. It looks neat, but I don't know if it would be a pain to use. I thought about getting something like that for when my DD was first old enough to sit in the cart, but decided against it. I think other companies make similar products. I believe I saw one at

I have one that my mom gave me. I never use it because it's a pain to bring it with us. Now I just use a padded piece of cloth with velcro that's made to fit around the handle of a shopping cart. That's what my baby always wants to chew on. It's small and easy.

I have one. I got it at Babies R Us and it's pretty easy to put on - you just velcro it around the handle and rest it in the seat. There's a belt that attaches around DS. I don't remember the brand name and it's out in the car right now. I used it once. Everytime DS saw something that interested him he would reach for it and he very easily could have fallen out of the cart. It really didn't do too much to hold him in the cart. I had to hold on to him with one hand the whole way through the store. I figure I'll try it again when I trust DS to stay in the cart on his own.

I have one from babies R us and it's still a little too big for 7 mo. old but she likes it better than carseat. I never walk away from the cart anyway.

I've never heard of these-- but have heard of the Buggy Bag (pretty pricey for my taste!) and found another site online that gives directions for making a cover (looked pretty easy).
Here's the links:
and to make a cover:

I had great intentions of making a cover-- but never got it done! We just put a recieving blanket around the shopping cart bar and sides and hook his teething links (with toys attached) around it. He's usually too focused on looking around the store to pay much attention to the cart bar!

Also Right Start sells them. We had one for DD when she was younger. I liked it. I found it really cheap at WalMart. But Right Start does sell them too. They are just a little more expensive there. Good luck!!

Thanks, everyone! I found one I like better, and it is definitely cheaper than the buggy bag.
