LittleMiss Car Seat Update

It’s been two months since I posted our family car seat outburst so here’s an update.

LittleMiss no longer argue’s whenever I put her down and even manage to have a good snooze.

How did we do it?

  1. Stay strong. Yes, it really is difficult to see your child crying (my heart is torn to pieces when this happen) but having your child strapped in the car seat is the safest way to travel.
  2. Ignore. She cried in her seat begging me to get her – ignore! V would start singing and tell stories but we all ignored her and she eventually stopped and started laughing with whatever Kuya V was doing.
  3. Mirror. 6ambabies at twitter gave me the  advise. It did wonders! She was busy for a good 20 minutes staring at herself 🙂
  4. Toys. Something to keep her busy.

 

We don’t have any plans just yet on moving her to a forward facing seat specially after reading that rear-facing seat is the safest choice. Read links below.

The Swedish (rear facing) car seat approach – Children sit rear facing in our Swedish seats which provide unbelievable  protection.  We keep our kids rear facing mainly for the great protection of head and neck.  As doctors say, “we can fix arms and legs – we can’t fix head and neck”

One-in seven parents put their children at risk by moving them to a forward facing seat.
