Koo-Di BoosterProtector Charcoal
Product Details
The Koo-Di booster protector protects car seats, pushchairs, and highchairs in the event of a nappy leaking or whilst a toddler is toilet training. The protector is easy to position and is made from a soft toweling fabric with a waterproof backing and padded absorbent lining. Was £8.97

N.B
The picture is misleading as its only the grey pad that is sold, not inc the booster seat. A child old enough to use a booster seat will not require this product. It is for potty training age of about 2 yrs+

I have always just used a folded over towel from when my daughter started toilet training at 2.5. I am sure a towel can be washed easier and a replacement towel in place in seconds, rather than having to wait for this absorbent thing to dry.

Pointless to me!

not sure why you would need one for this seat most kids aged at least 5 are potty trained!

Sorry to disagree ellie27: We had 2 of these and thought they were fantstic. It just places on the car seat (NOT a booster seat like in the picture as th koo-di protector product is for potty/ toilet training age toddlers and not intended for a child of the age suitable for a booster seat!!) - hence the loop to go over the belt buckle between the legs. It is thin and comfprtable to sit on - completely flat and unnoticable (more comfortable than sitting on a folded towel I'd think especially on a long journey). Another bonus is the waterproof backing: maybe if used for a bit of a 'flood' this protector might struggle to cope but we found it worked fine and never had to wash the car seat covers. It is so easy to wash and dries really fast becasue it is so thin and made of quick drying material.

Where was it stated that it was for 5yr olds?

I think it was assumed because to use a booster seat as pictured children have to be about 4+ (and therfore would normally be toilet trained). It is the choice of seat in the photograph that is misleading - the product is great for toddlers / toilet training stage who would normally be in a proper car seat.

I have never used a booster for my 2 yr old pmsl!

The child has to be minimum of 15kg to sit in a booster seat.
I checked this weeks ago before getting one for my little girl who is 2yrs and 5 months.

The product is not actually a booster seat, it is a light pad that can be put on any pushchair/carseat/pram/booster seat etc to soak up pee.



And yes, I would not think any toilet training child would be in a booster seat

Yes it is only the thin grey pad in the picture that this post relates to not the seat. As said earlier the picture is misleading; the koo-di protector would be used in a car seat appropriate to a child of potty / toilet training age. I shall edit my first post to make it clearer there too.

My 3.5 year old son is in a stage 2 car seat now as he is heavy enough & tall for his age. These are great as although he was toilet trained at 2.5 years old, he is still wet at night & will still wet himself when he falls asleep in the car, so yes very useful & as other posters say, can also be used in stage 1 car seats & pushchairs too.

Maybe there is confusion as to what a booster seat is aswell? Some people call forward facing seats booster seats. If its like the picture then they are for 15kg-36kg roughly 4-11yrs (stated on mothercare site). I would never put my 26month old son in one of those as its not safe due to there pelvic bones not being strong enough to not shatter in a crash. Which is why they need a harness in a forward facing seat.

*my son is 16kg

omg you cannot put a 2.5 yr old in a booster seat regardless of weight its ridiculously dangerous they need a 5 point harness till at least 3!
