Babies not buckled in carseats

It seems like every day I see more and more children not buckled or buckled but not properly in the car seats. It boils my blood!! I did my research about car seats while pregnant and talked to friends about them to learn more to make sure my child was in correctly. I had a girl friend that was only buckling the chest snap!!! When I asked her about it she said he was too big and the bottom buckle wouldn't snap anymore.... I had to show her how to adjust his straps so they would fit!!! These poor innocent kids know no better and they may lose their life because parents are not taking the time to buckle them properly.

Would you say something to someone if they don't buckle their kids correctly?

My sister only clips it at the chest for my 3 year old niece. The other night I went to drive her home and she didn't even bother to buckle in the seat to the car. I thought it was an oversight but when I said something to her, she said " oh she'll be fine". I got out of my seat and buckled her in properly.

Family and friends? Yep.

Complete strangers? Probably not.

Just mention it nicely.

I forgot to buckle my youngest once. We got out of a parking lot and I noticed while we were in the turning lane.

I felt sooooo bad! I pulled over right away after we turned into another parking lot.

Mistakes happen. We all make them. I've had it happen before. I thought my so buckled my daughter and he thought I did. We got down the road and I looked back and noticed instantly! We pulled over and buckled her. I always make sure now.

I saw a baby riding in the front seat in the lap of the mother ( i am assuming it was the mom)... I wanted to go off!!! This is the thing I hate most in this world!
