Our family went to the Lubbock Health Fair today. There were bounce houses, a climbing wall, and lots of booths set up with information regarding healthy living.
On our way out of the park, we noticed there was an area set up for a "car seat check"; experts were checking car seats to ensure they were up to current standards and were installed correctly.
The boys booster seats were given the okay...but it turns out Lauryn's car seat is no longer recommended for use! We bought the seat way back when Ryan was a baby, and apparently the "tray style" (with the padded bar that comes down in front) is no longer considered safe. (Funny how things change...when we bought the seat we did internet research and bought what was then recommended as the safest style.)
They confiscated Lauryn's old seat and gave us a brand new one. Praise God!
That's awesome! Praise God is right!
Yippee! Isn't it crazy how things change? Who does all this research anyway? Just curious!
While moving the kids' booster seats from my van to Nana's van I noticed that on one seat (and all three have the same kind) it says in big letters on the bottom, "Do not use after December."
I have no idea what that means. December of what year? And why? Is the seat sensitive to weather?
