    ? about carseat inspection...

    I'm having my seats inspected again tomorrow. The first time I ever got it done, the lady installed them for me and told me to have a nice day. Didn't watch me do it, didn't comment on my installation...nothing.

    SO...made an appointment with a SafeKids technician tomorrow and I was just wondering if they check your kids size/weight with the seat. Do I need my kids there or is the focus on the seats?

    She told me to make sure I have the carseat manuals and my car's manual. She did tell me about some paperwork that I would have to fill out.

    I'm excited!! I even went and vacuumed my car for this!!!

    Take your kids, if you can, that way she/he can see if the restraints are suitable for their age/weight/height (bring some snacks to keep them happy though!).

    Re: ? about carseat inspection...

    I've only had my seats inspected once and that was because I was having problems with my blvd. I didn't take my kids because I knew my seats were set up right for them and I was just going for help with installation. It was a good thing I didn't take the kids, it took almost two hours and we had to call the instructors instructor and britax.
    If it seems like I'm not making sense, it's probably just my phone

    Bring the kids. Bring activities for them & a "babysitter" if you can, but bring the kids.
