Any of you guys with little ones can relate. You reach around the car seat to pug the seat belt in, and the latch piece is either in the seat or falls in when you try to connect it. In my old truck they were nice hard plastic and you could do it with one hand. Not the taco. The latch is on soft fabric. Not the end of the worls but does take some getting used to.

yeah, i know what you mean. I always try to use one hand, but it sure is kind of aggrivating to reach your whole arm and your whole body around your child to buckle it. Oh well, just something to get used to. :D

My son is four now and uses a "booster seat." He's old enough to buckle himself in and this makes life much easier. But at least the DC backseat is big enough to get up into and help your kid out...unlike a little car where you wouldn't have much room to work with.

Lame Design

Putting in my 14 month old's car seat was a total pain. Almost impossible to fully tighten down the rear restraint. Can't imainge that any of the engineers who did the interior actually have kids....there has to be a better way.

For my infant seat I thought it was pretty easy, clipping to those bars that are in the crack of the seat. Much easier than messing with the seatbelt. I'll see how it goes when I have to move up to the bigger juvenile seats.

Oh, and BTW, here is what the car seat is holding in. My lil buddy, and first born, Wyatt.


He's now 4 weeks old.

yes thinking hard about pooping

very handsome lil man PB

and the latch system is easier than messing with the seat belts

take it to a safety check station: our fire/police departments set up several times per year and will check to see if they are installed properly or where you bought it

I might do that, even though I read the instructions pretty close, and got it anchored down pretty tight.

I got it strapped so tight that there will probably be permanent indentions in the seat even after the seat is gone.

:D

We just gave him a bath. It's a shaky picture, but check out his mohawk. :lol: He was born with all that hair, and doesn't seem to be loosing any of it. Everybody loves it.

I love this guy. He cracks me up all the time.



Sorry to derail this thread.

Pb, you may want to check out the Mighty-Tite Car Seat Tightener. They are great for really snugging the seat down tight, and very easy to use.

We bought ours at Babies-R-Us a few years ago, and it looks like they are still available, at least online and possibly in-store -- http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000056JHP/qid=1134453891/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/104-0480528-6435134?v=glance&s=baby (lots of user reviews there, just be sure to read past the first few before making a decision)
