Baby gagnam style video makes brain hurt....

I've now had 4 people post this on my facebook feed, and I'm going to have a fit. Neither of those children is in an appropriate car seat nor is the baby strapped in properly. I bet I could get my entire hand in behind that crotch strap. Belly clip....gah! Yes it's cute, and the little girl laughing to the point of tears is adorable but my mommy sensibilities are going wacko.

DH showed me the video and all I could say was that the older child should still be in a harness and the baby should be rear facing let alone have the harness done properly. He was not amused with my observations.

DH tried to show it to me and I couldn't watch. Then I saw a car seat criticism post about it that I did share. Got all kinds of nasty response over it and ended up deleting several friends too. I don't care though...car seat safety is not something I mess around with!

Re: Baby gagnam style video makes brain hurt....

my kids were laughing hysterically and all i could focus on were the darn carseats and how unsafe those babies are! for my husband to notice says a lot too...after 4 kids he has learned a lot from me and it was the first time he has ever commented on something like that. but yes i am with you, it made my brain hurt and i am SO sick of seeing it all over fb.

Ugh, that is really bad . . .I never watched it because I freaking HATE that song. Now I still hate the song and also am annoyed by the lack of safety.

I can say that I was really proud of my 13 year old son. He said, "shouldn't she still be rear-facing like Alex?"

The car seat lady posted about it. That is something worth sharing.

My husband actually showed me that video yesterday. He said "can you believe they would break the law and post a video of it?"


At least it wasnt the driver running the camera...
