My children are 9 months & 4yrs old. I just started working (after 3.5yrs as a sahm. *sad face*) last week.
So I enrolled them into a daycare/preschool.
Today the bus driver tells me "stop putting the baby in her carrier, we have a seat for her."

I said "I rather keep her in her seat"
Then the bus driver said "her legs are too long, she's uncomfortable, if I hit a bump her legs will break"

Holy crap. I bit my tongue, smiled, and walked away.

Our daughter is almost 9 months old...I forget the weight, but state law is 1yrs old to front face & so many pounds (whichever comes last).....

No freaking way I'm allowing them to front face my daughter.

How would you handle it?

umm wow well i would call the daycare center and tell them that their driver is trying to break the law. Yes, it is law that they rear face until 1 and it is also suggested to continue it even longer. Dont listen to the driver, you do what your supposed to do. Can you just drive them to daycare yourself?

I would call his supervisor. They are running a childcare facility, and everyone needs to be up to date on car seat safety laws.
