argh!!!! some people!!!!
 
I posted this status to my fb:(it was supposed to be attached to a pic, but the pic never loaded.)
Winter carseat reminder: chest clips at armpit level and coats are NOT safe in a carseat. put baby in seat in clothes only. Tighten straps until you cannot pinch any slack in the strap. If you have to loosen the straps to get them in with their coat on its too bulky! The coat will compress in an accident and the seat will not hold baby properly! Keep babies safe this winter! Rear facing til at least 2!

well guess what shows up on my feed? a "friend, "C" post that reads


This is why I dislike Facebook....because I read other people's posts and since I've gotten more and more opinionated with every year that passes, I get irritated. When it's cold out I'm not going to put my daughter in the carseat without a coat. It's cold, we wear coats for a reason. Secondly, I'm not leaving her rear facing until she's two. Her legs would be so curled up its ridiculous. It's not a law, it's a recommendation. Just because I don't follow the recommendation doesn't mean I'm not keeping my daughter safe. Lol this is why I keep deleting people off of Facebook. I don't care to read people preaching on topics they like to think they are experts on. Whew....now I feel better.

D We are all individuals. What's best for one child isn't necessarily best for another. That is why we as their parents get to decide what is best for our little one :)

C I'm sorry but with the leg room available in a rear facing carseat, if you had them like that until age two, they might as well sit Indian style.

Lora A rear facing child is 5x less likely to have a spinal cord injury. Id much rather have a broken leg

C Well my pediatrician doesn't seem to think so....and since he went to medical school that technically makes him an expert on my daughter's safety. They also say its a recommendation that you're in a booster until 4 ft 9 ....guess there's adults that should be in boosters still too. They can make recommendations until they're blue in the face and then they'll decide they were wrong next year.

D If you see someone has clearly stated others posting their opinions about all this why would you go right under that status and comment...I would think an adult could have respect for the persons frustration and just keep their mouth shut.

I totally get where you are coming from. So sorry you have to deal with all those comments on your post. Which reminds me, I need to work on my post for the same thing!

short adults ARE safer in the back, but then that is a pain when driving :-)

I had a 6 year old rear facer, wish I had a photo, although I bet he'd still be RF at 7 if I had the space in the car.

people are crazy.

Post a link to one of those scary youtube videos of crash tests. That's what convinced me.

You should post a video of what happens to FF little ones in an accident. I'm sorry they don't utilize your helpful, potentially life saving advice :(

What kind of a friend is "C" that she would think nothing of posting something that RUDE on someone else's FB status? Seriously.

Sadly she was actually my maid of honor ten yrs ago. She actually posted that as her own status. But that bothers me worse. She was clearly addressing my status, so I feel like she didn't want me to see it. I'd rather it be directly to me kwim?

Wow, that's nuts. I don't know why people get so defensive about safety issues of their kids! Sure, my pediatrician went to medical school, and I trust his OPINION on my daughter's HEALTH. But not her safety in a vehicle.
