    How to tell someone their child is unsafe in their seat?

    I have a friend (not someone I am super close with, we see each other occasionally, but she is very laid back and nice) who has a little girl in a backless booster with no head rest on the seat.

    While I was shopping around for a new seat for almost 8 month old I was flipping through the radian xt manual and near the front of it, in the warnings part, I thought it said something like "Use only in Rear facing position with an infant weighing less than 22 pounds (10kg)" Did I read this...

    What seat after the infant carrier?

    Littlest one is now 7.5 months old and I m starting to think about what seat to put her in next. She had to temporarily ride in an Eddie Bauer AIO and really liked being up higher so she could see around and laugh at her big sister in the back row! I also feel like she was more comfortable in...

    We have a 2005 Chevy Uplander. Would love to upgrade to a newer safer van but it is probably not possible financially for the next while anyways. Right now we have 3 kids (you can see their stats in my siggy), new baby due in 6 weeks. All 3 are harnessed in Graco Nautilus. In the van only...

    I am really hoping to get a higher weight infant bucket seat for baby number 4 due to the amount of times we will be in and out of the van with driving my other 3 kids to school.

    My twins are both in Surveyor/vantage point comfort high back deluxe child restraint and high back boosters by Dorel. We need to replace these due to a car accident. I believe we paid about $189 at TRU, but it was a couple of years ago and I can't find the receipts. The insurance agent wants...

    Frontier Recall really? Can't I just return the shoddy thing?!

    I have not been here for quite a while and this is my first time seeing the recall for the Frontier. My oldest rides in a Frontier and I am sure there have been many times that we loosen one strap at a time. I did mail in my registration card right after buying the seat, which was the first...

    The Law: Tethering a booster?

    Does anyone know what the law (in Canada) is for tethering boosters? Have 3 kids now but planning a 4th, looking for a new vehicle but don't know if we need 3 or 4 top tethers. I am sort of thinking that if we kept our youngest rear facing for as long as possible (2.5-2.75 years if they grow...
