Car Seats

I totally stole this from a friend, who stole it from one of her friends, on Face Book. LOL But really it's so true. If we would all listen to manufactures more we would all be a little safer! State laws are just a minimum requirement after all.

"Rather than taking our cues from state requirements how about from the car seat makers? The safest, most confining seat available for the height/weight of your child is what you should go with. First thing to check is, is a seat available that rear faces my child? If yes buy it, is a seat available that harnesses my child? If yes, buy it. State laws change and state laws take a bit of time to change. Eventually they'll get there but your consequences for choosing a booster with seat belt for a child that could still be harnessed and rear facing don't come from the state you live in, they come from hospital bed or grave your child occupies after the accident."
