    Re: CPSC bans ALL drop-side cribs

    Even here on a car safety board, there is a wide range of comfort in allowing parents to make their own decisions on the risks they are willing to take. Some parents Face their kids forward at 2, others at 3, others only at the limit of the seat (even if the kid is 5 or 6).

    Banning a choice for parents is a bad thing. It is the government taking one more step in thinking they can make the choices.

    There are, even now, a very few cases that overhead shields would be best for (came up in the OI thread to try to find one of those seats). But they are hard to find because of the ban.
