They're not the only ones that have thought that. There was a kid in a commercial for ****'s Sporting Goods where the same mistake is being made.

ETA: Apparently DS thinks the sporting goods store's name is offensive

Sigh. I agree. I've hidden most pictures from people who post craptastic seat use, but today I was really let down. A very intelligent mom of 5.5, and it's her daughter FFing in a Blvd with the straps coming out at LEAST and inch and a half below her shoulders.

I have no clue. You turn it around, rig it only God knows how with a seatbelt, and call it good.

My SIL did this with my nephew in his bucket because "he cries to much if he doesn't see me." She drove with him over 500 miles this way. In the winter. No snow tires. And she's an awful driver as it is. I almost sh** when I found out. I called her and explained my concerns, and I even gave her a carseat to use when he had WAY outgrown the bucket (in height and weight.) She installed it wrong, front facing, and straps so loose she kept complaining that he would wiggle out and she was SOOO annoyed.


Apparently some people just don't care about their children. Harsh, but true.
