Am I the only one?

I am a member of the car seat group because I feel very strongly about car seat safety. However, I recently chose to forward face my almost two year old son. I almost feel like people are avoiding me because I do this, like I'm the plague or something. Anyone else?

  • People get so over dramatic with all this car seat stuff. Do what is best for your kid and don't worry about someone elses kid! lol

  • anon

    in EVERY state that is illegal. His size is not relavant to the growth and ossification of his bones.

  • That is why I don't join groups like that. Because if you don't do what they think is right and you do what is right for your child you get bashed. I say leave .
