The amount of people who don't know proper car seat safety is astonishing.

100% and as a first time mom I didn’t know either.

It's one thing to make minor mistakes as a new mom. That's totally understandable. But I know one person who literally doesn't tighten the straps AT ALL. Like they are falling off both of the kid’s shoulders all the time. He could climb out EASILY. That's just plain stupidity. Anyone with a brain, even if they don't have kids, would know that’s wrong and extremely dangerous.

Yup agreed and I get we make mistakes as new parents but seriously some of it is common sense and a simple google search will help. I was a first time mom and I researched car seat safety

Yes! I have given up with my SIL... her husband is a damn cop for christ sake! They have their 16lb 19mo FF And the straps literally dont even touch her body. Unsafe AND illegal! They literally don't care. I believe in know better, do better. It's tough as a FTM and all the new information you have to learn. BUT no matter what, you still gotta learn it. People who are offended when they are told they should do better with carseat safety have their priorities seriously messed up!

JVP I think any police, fire, etc should be trained in car seat safety. Or at LEAST (although outdated in most states) the LAWS. I wish I could ask BIL (cop) if he's ever seen an accident with young children involved. But that would be offensive.🙄 (plus I'm assuming he hasn't since there is 0 care about keeping his own child safe)

Kay's Mommy JVP right! That's why when mom’s are like “I got pulled over and the officer didn't say anything, my child is fine” liek not all officers know!!! I see SO many people forward facing 1 year olds, straps too loose, saw one where the strap were buckled on the six dog the child's arms. I guess too right and couldn't get it over shoulders. Like figure it out! Obviously it isn't right

Mommy O asks Any of you mommas use the Facebook marketplace to sell things? I made a mistake and sold my dads vintage coffee table 😫 the minute they took off with it I regretted it. I wrote a long message about it asking if he'd agree to give it back (an hour or so later) and said I'd cover his gas coming and of course any inconvenience charges. I feel so bad asking this and never have before but I haven’t heard back so I'm guessing it is gone forever. So sad 😢 and I know it's my own darn fault.
