Thank you to the great ladies here....

...for making me a carseat nut!

I told a mom at church last week that she was buckling in her 13 month dd wrong (straps too loose, chest clip at the belly) and showed her how to do it correctly. I also encouraged her to turn her daughter back around RF, which she did. Today she and her dd were in a car accident. Mom was hurt (broken arm, bruises, cuts, concussion) but dd was NOT injured beyond a couple of bruises!

The mom called me this evening to tell me the state trooper said it was b/c dd was buckled in correctly that she was not hurt or killed.

If it wasn't for the info I learned here, I would have never had the confidence to talked to the mom. Thank you from the bottom of my heart (and my friend's heart).

Re: Thank you to the great ladies here....

I hope your friend recovers quickly. Kudos to you for speaking up. You helped save that baby from injuries and your friend saved her by listening and being receptive. Both of you did great.

Re: Thank you to the great ladies here....

That is great news (that she listened, not that she was hurt in a wreck) and I'm glad that you were able to get through to her. I didn't even know before this board about erf and many of the other things that I've learned. Kudos to you for speaking up!

I am so glad you had the guts to speak up and show her the correct way, and that she turned her daughter around and took your advice! Good for you and for her too!

Your story gave me goosebumps! So glad you talked to her, and she listened, and it paid off so quickly and obviously!
