made me cringe


New member
went to the supermarket the other day...just had my 2 and a half year old with me. I parked beside a car which I happened to look in and saw what looked to be a no older than 6 month old FF :(. ok she had th seat reclined but still. this baby didnt even look like she could sit up.

now of course my 2 and a half year old is still rearfacing. I live in NZ where I can accept a child over 18 months FF (mostly cause some of our carseats only RF to 26lbs a few as low as 18lbs).

it is a pity she wasnt parked on the side of me. as her baby was on her drivers side and my son was on the passenger side then she would have seen RFing and maybe asked some questions evenif it was "isnt he too old to RF" I then could have explained the benefits of RFing to at least 2 years of age.

I didnt say anything to her as I doubt the she would have wanted unsolicted advise and I am not a carseat tech.

any over and out from me
