    I love it when...

    People ask my advice on carseats

    I ran to Wally World today for a few baby supplies & groceries, and this nice couple was looking at the Comfort Sport. They asked me if I knew anything about carseats (3 kids... apparently I'm an expert ).

    Anyways... door open!! I proceeded to educate them on why the Comfort Sport wouldn't last, why ERF'ing is so important, and gave them some really good other options: MR65, TF(P), Radian, EFTA... And the cutest part was when she asked what the older kids did with their legs RF'ing, DD said "I do this: and crossed her legs in the cart

    Anyways... just had to share!!

    That is so cute that your dd spoke up and demonstrated how she sits. That definitely goes a long way in showing people that it's not "uncomfortable".

    I wish I could Rep your DD. She provided the best educational tool for them. She provided the opinion of a child that actually ERF & can vouch that not only is it safe but it is comfy too. WTG!

    She deserves a treat mommy! Hee hee hee
