Quoting MommaSav2:" I have the same argument with my mom all the time. It drives me nuts and she just thinks I'm being paranoid ... [snip!] ... turn my 23 month old FFing and says my almost 6 year old looks ridiculous in a carseat and doesn't need it. I just ignore her."
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" I'd tell her its called a car heater. Baby isn't going to freeze "
Quoting ღ.ღ.ღ:" Yup, she's just that old fashioned. One of her sons buys and resells old/used carseats and she tried ... [snip!] ... where that smurf had been, so i bought all new and she got mad. It was my damn money i don't see why she'd have a fit."
Quoting P Pickle Pants:" My mom has made me crazy. Luckily she's 3000 miles away and basically never has him and never without ... [snip!] ... me in a car, ever. She swears babies and toddlers of all ages are SAFER in their mothers' arms than ANY carseat! She's NUTS"
Quoting Will☮Creedence:" Lol when my son was like 2 months old my dad was like "So when does he start formula?" I was like never..... ... [snip!] ... to get nutrients. He also wanted me to start baby food at like 3 months haha I think parents just forget things sometimes."
Quoting ♡Sarah♡ + 2:" I'm kind of a single parent right now while DH is deployed and my mom always says smurf like dont shake ... [snip!] ... a breather. Ugh, no smurf mom...I've never shaken a baby. I kind of wish she'd just make stupid comments like car seat stuff."
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" Youtube it and show her videos, might change her mind."
Quoting ღ.ღ.ღ:" It wouldn't make a difference, once she has something in her head it can't be changed. She's still living ... [snip!] ... home and men worked, women pleased their husband and the husband came before the kids, children are to be seen not heard etc."
Quoting jordan.ℓeigh✿:" Wow, I couldn't imagine feeling that way..."
Quoting jordan.ℓeigh✿:" My mom/grandma are always on my ass about stuff I do with DD. Like for example, I shared this picture ... [snip!] ... a carseat with me, I'm her youngest kid. But I can explain to her the safety issues for hours and she just never even listens."
Quoting whoknowsx:" I feel so dumb asking this but..... what is the picture telling us? Are children not suppose to have coats/outwear on in a car seat?"
