Wuh-oh......

  1. [font=book antiqua]monster recently graduated into a high-back booster seat. last night we came home from dinner out (she sits behind the driver) and i unlocked the door and opened mine. i was talking to my husband (drove his own truck) and i heard a noise behind me. i turned around and there was monster, grinning. she had unbelted herself from the seat and opened the back door!! at first i panicked, i thought i hadn't buckled her in but she said "i pushed the button, mama!"

    [font=book antiqua]we had a little heart to heart chat about only doing that when she asks permission, otherwise she has to wait for someone to let her out.

    Or get a padlock for the seatbelt

    I put our son behind the passenger seat - I'd like him to be in the middle but there is a bump there that makes the carseat tip. I want to see him so he cannot sit behind me. Also, I keep thinking that if I'm hit on the driver's side during an accident, he gets hit too. The safest place is in the middle of course ... . . maybe I should figure out a way to keep the darn seat from tipping.

    My son also figured out how to take his seatbelt off a couple of years ago. . .in the 4 point restraint carseat. So, yeah . .. time to do some "re-education".

    My grandson is 29 months old and is trying to get himself out of the carseat, when you put him in it, he starts crying "I'm stuck, I'm stuck"...try convincing a two year old they aren't stuck........lol

    my grandson was an early learner in things like unlocking the gates leading to a busy highway and of course unbuckling the dreaded safety seat..his favorite thing to do after getting loose was waving at patrol cars you are lucky if that heart to heart has any good effect this was just a phase, after only two decades he has turned out to be a really good fellow unbelieveable

    I wouldn't try to convince him he isn't, I'd be agreeing with him!

    "Yes, dear, you are stuck, and that's right where I want you!!"

    Tazzi thats good, but doesn't get him to be quiet....lol
    I personally would love to have him up front with me, keeping me company, but I also want him safe, so for now, he will be stuck.

    Stevie,
    Depending on how big the hump is, get some of those long noodles the kids use in teh pool. Cut them into approprtiate lengths to build up under the car seat in the appropriate spots. This is what they use where my dh works to install car seats at the car seat checkups.

    No prob Stevie.
    Just cut them about the width of the carseat or just a little longer and stack them where the low spots are to level out the hump. THen you just climb on top of them to strap the seat in securely.
    It worked for us pittling little miss' infant seat in the back of my Camaro when she was born.
