What I learned...

During my first solo trip to the grocery store with both kids. Yikes! I know you're not supposed to put the car seat on the front part of the cart...but I've always done it. Not anymore! My seat literally does not fit & since it clips into the base on the side there is no way to secure it to the cart. So into the cart it goes... & takes up most of the room. I think I'll stick to my Moby from now on.

My little guy hates the wrap and the carseat we have is a convertible one so it stays in the car...needless to say I don't go to the store at all unless my older two (9 and 6) are with so they can help push the cart and get items etc because I'm holding the baby and I also have a 2 year old to manage.

I have the same issue except the carseat doesnt click into the carts at the store i grocery shop at. It will at other stores, but Meijer carts are different i guess. Its a bummer!

It is not safe to click the seats into the Carts whether it fits or not. For one it makes the cart top heavy and have seen with my own eyes in stores other people carts tipping over. There are also warning pictures on carts not to do it.

Second it affects the locking mechanism on the seat and can affect your seat working properly in am accident. Manufacturers of carseats also do not allow it
