Infant Car Seats

This is from the Boba FaceBook page. I have been hearin a lot lately about babies getting injured or near injured from the car seat being snapped in. I didn't know any better, don't know how many are in the same boat.

    LOL I do that with the stroller and the cart when I go to the local store. There were a few times I just didn't have the muscle to get up in the cart (I'm short) so I would kind of make a bed in the little seat.. I just use a carrier now.

    Everybody still does it now, at least here. I'm always seeing this around facebook and thought I'd share it here.

    I only wish I had that much help. I'm usually battling the toddlers to stay buckled while I have the baby in a carrier and pushing the cart.

    My girls do great. My son is a typical male and can't stand more than twenty minutes. :) Hard when I shop for a month at a time which means hours of shopping.

      I did it all the time too and as lucky to never have an accident. After my second was born, I saw a video similar to this one: So Hayden never went on the top of the cart. It is so dangerous. Since then, I've also become a CPST (car seat tech) and learned even more. Putting an infant seat on top of the cart like that, you will likely hear it latch into place. BUT those latches are made for the base, not for a cart and latching them to a cart can cause damage to them - to the point where they may not hold in a collision! PLEASE don't put your infant carriers on top of a cart. Put them in a cart. If this means you have to take 3 trips instead of one, so be it - your child's life (and it can unfortunately be the difference between life and death) is much more important than an hour of your time ;)
