I was rear-ended at a light last week while driving with my 17-month-old. Damage was minor: some broken plastic over one brake light, a few dings on the rear bumper, a slight dent in my trunk. The car is still drive-able and most importantly nobody was hurt!
I've read that car seats need to be replaced after a collision and I think our son's life is worth shelling out another $100. (Money is tight but I could find a good deal on a new seat and we could still pay our bills.) But my husband thinks the manufacturers are just trying to sell more seats and that I'm being fooled by their b.s.! So I'm torn between protecting our child and keeping my husband happy.
What would you do? Replace the seat and piss off my husband, a loving husband and father who hates to part with his money (I'm a SAHM with no income of my own) or possibly jeopardize my son's safety with a seat that doesn't look damaged but might be?
