    unbuckling chest clip

    uggg DS wont stop!! He is not yet 2. I have tried scratchy velcro, babyleg (worked for 2w!), firm warning, we have stopped 100000 times, tried distractions, even rewards. He really has a short attention span and he forgets all about the rewards. I also think he is a little less mature understanding than most two yrs. I'm at loss of what to do. I can only feed him so much in the car (which I hate but it buys us a few min) He rides in a radian RF and also is able to easily get the clip off a SS1.

    Can I safely do a preemie diaper around the clip?

    Maybe see if you can find an old-style RN chest clip? Those are a PITA to undo... the new RN clips are the easiest ones ever.

    Put a button down shirt on the kid, then buckle the harness, pulling the shirt out around the harness. Then button the shirt over the harness. Kid can't get to the harness. If it's too hot in your area, cut the sleeves off.

    Or a zippered jacket. If he knows how to unzip, you can always put a safety pin under the zipper.
