I didn’t voice my frustrations very much here on the blog about my struggles with finding a car seat that I would be able to push the button on, but you might have caught my open letter that I wrote to Baby Mama Marketers when I was in a crazy emotional state not long ago. It was very hard for me because I felt like manufacturers were not considering a huge line of consumers when they create their car seat buttons. I have been terrified about all of the things that I could possibly not do on my own due to my physical limitations and it has caused me to break down many times throughout this pregnancy. I have thankfully been able to find loop holes to fix many of the problems that I was concerned about and I have just found the most amazing device for moms who have problems with their hands.
Please hear me out.
So, if you are someone who is has dexterity issues with your hand for any reason and have children in your life you will want to buy this Buckle Bopper. I am currently pregnant and went to the store to try pushing the buttons on all of the car seats to find one that I would be able to push and ended up bawling my eyes out in the middle of the store because I could not get a single one to budge. It was the most devastating thing for a new mom. I thought for sure I was going to be stuck going places with someone and could never be independent with my child due to the fact that I could not get them out of their car seat.
I can push car seat buttons now!
Thankfully I was told about this Buckle Bopper by another person who is handicapped with CMT like I am and instantly came to Amazon to find it. I was still nervous that I would not be able to push the button down, but I was wrong! I went straight to the car seat in the store that I have been wanting (the Chicco NextFit Zip convertible car seat) and pushed the button with ease! It was the most exciting thing ever! I then attempted to take my nephew out of his Graco car seat and managed to get him out with only three tries pushing the button in. I can imagine that it will only get easier as I learn how to do it just perfectly for me.
So, if you have a neuromuscular disease, muscular dystrophy, or arthritis I highly suggest you invest in this. It does not cost much and it is surprisingly easy to use. I was scared because I have issues gripping anything, but the rubber that goes against your hand and the rubber that goes against the button makes for a world of difference. I am going to swear by this device. It isn’t even that expensive. You can buy one off of Amazon for under $15. This would also make a great gift for grandparents who possibly have arthritis issues or for a baby shower gift for the new mom who doesn’t have a lot of strength in her hands.
You can do it, too!
