If you know the benefits of extended rear facing and extended harnessing and choose not to do it, I think less of you as a mother. Ignorance is one thing, but to know the facts and ignore them is negligent, imo.

I understand that there are (very few) exceptions to this, but "he cried all the time" or "she looked uncomfortable" aren't those exceptions.





This post is old...lol. Thanks for bringing it back up.

My 14yo is still harnessed and rearfacing. 

I also wrap her in bubble wrap as soon as she wakes up.

I don't mind too much when people think less of me as a mother. The people whose opinions truly matter, think I do a great job. Even if I did not erf until DD was 4.

 Tisk tisk.  Bubble wrap is a choking hazard.  Don't you know anything??

My son loved rear facing he got to see all the other cars and 18 wheelers since we were in a truck and he started waving at all the other cars and they would honk back or wave back lol he still does that now

Yep, because keeping toddlers as safe as possible in a car is the same as "wrapping them in a bubble".

I think if you know the facts about car accidents and choose to go on unnessary car trips with your child then you are a bad parent.
