    Question Infant Car Seat Recs?

    I have decided to go with an infant car seat this time... So I need to start looking into them. I know I really didn't like the evenflo with z shaped handle with my son. I didn't mind the graco snug ride with my daughter but it was kind of heavy. I didn't like the baby trend with triangle...

    How to talk to someone about bad car seat use

    We started babysitting for a friend (not long time or real close friend) three days a week. I ended up meeting her to pick up the little boy today. He is almost 2 years old. She has him forward facing, straps under his arm pits, so loose he can be pulled right out, very bulky coat on. I...

    Made a car seat cover!

    I decided to go ahead and try making her one... I am not quite done as I still have to add the padding on each side for support. Oh and don't mind the terrible sewing job- I found out just how hard it is to sew something this large. This car seat is one that attaches to a stroller- and is...
