About Melissa Conn, car seat expert

Hi! I’m Melissa, the voice behind Travel Car Seat Mom. I’m also a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST), so you can trust that you’re getting accurate safe information about traveling with a car seat. Unlike a lot of car seat websites you’ll find on the web today, I am who I say I am: a mom who travels a lot with her kids and their car seats.

I’m passionate about helping parents realize that they can still travel without compromising their kids’ safety (or their own sanity). I hope that this site will be a valuable resource for you and your family as you get out and explore the world together. We’d love to connect with you to answer your questions and help you out! Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram to send a message if you have specific questions.

I started blogging because I love helping people figure how to travel more, better and easier with their kids. Even before that, the first question other parents asked when they heard about our travels was “but what do you do about their car seats?” I’ve answered that question for over 100,000 readers on our travel blog, but I know that I can provide a lot more depth on a dedicated website without losing the original focus on family-friendly destinations and travel tips.

You can read all about our globetrotting adventures at The Family Voyage. We even managed two years of full-time travel as a family of four before recently settling into our new life in Ohio.
