Hi Lois,

What rear-facing car seat do you have?

If the video screen is very well secured and your car seat model has an anti-rebound feature, such as an anti-rebound bar, a rear-facing tether or a load leg, then any risk of attaching a hard object to the vehicle head restraint is probably quite low.

Otherwise, we generally do not recommend attaching any hard/heavy object where baby's head might strike it during an energetic rebound in a crash (or if the object became unattached and struck the child). This would also include mirrors made of hard plastic or with sharp edges. Softer mirrors with flexible reflective surfaces are generally fine unless prohibited by the car seat owners manual.
