    The ERF info was nice but I wish the Dr would have discussed FF in a harness until a certain age. She jumped straight to booster use after saying to RF until 2.

    At one point she said "FF harness as long as possible" I think. I wish they'd use that terminology with RF.

    I thought she just said something about keeping the child in there till the limits if the seat. To me it wasn't super clear whether she was saying that in regards to RF or FF. In just being picky I guess but I wish she would have mentioned appropriate booster age.

    Oh, I agree, overall it was really great. I loved the crash-test clips of FF vs RF being in there and everything. Just wish they wouldn't have said "should FF" after 2, LOL.

    Re: Major announcement on CBS Early Show on 3/21

    I LOVE that they updated the recommendations today!!!
    Yay for ERF!!!

    But... I am totally sad that I'm getting such terrible feedback on FB after posting it! Why do people have to hate on ERF? It just boils my blood that moms won't even consider it and think they're so smart for doing what they feel like rather than doing a little research and discovering that it really is safer! Just feeling disappointed in some of my friends today and had to come here where people understand and support ERF!

    Ok I must have watched the wrong video. There no crash tests. I clicked the link and it took me to an article. At the bottom was a video link and it was the male host and a Dr going down a row of car seats.

    Judi- Unfortunately, one of them is my sister.... grrr.. She's also one who told me I was crazy when I wouldn't use a 10-yr old booster she wanted to give me. (I did take eventually and quietly destroyed it. LOL.) I'm just trying to make a difference by helping people see the truth.... it's frustrating.

    I like that one allot better than the Today Show. It was great abs very easy to follow with the bullet points. That's awesome that Joels Gpa interviewed. His experience should make this advice resonate with parents.

    I really hope more Pediatricians start advocating ERF.

    I haven't watched yet but I have it recorded on my DVR. I'm really excited about this! I shared the link to the Chicago Tribune article on FB yesterday but now I want to share more. Which ones are the best ones? I don't want to post too many and overwhelm people w/ tons of links.

    I love that they included Joel's story. He's such a miracle.

    I'm so excited to see if there will be more older toddlers RFing in my area.



    Not a fan of the baby doll sitting in the booster.
