What's more important? Her being entertained or her being safe?



Also, kids should only have SOFT toys in the car. Everything loose in a vehicle becomes a projectile in a wreck.

And my doctor put my daughter in her seat completely wrong. They aren't certified. I suggest you watch some videos on youtube. I guarantee you're probably doing it wrong. She should not be able to "wiggle" her arms out if you're doing it right. Believe me, my daughter has tried when she was pissed off at me. There's no way.

Lol oh yah, I didn't even watch the video, I just knew I'd heard of that thing before. Oops. But I agree, if she's put in with properly positioned and tightened straps, there should be no room to "wiggle out"... or I'd start pulling over every time she starts trying to escape and letting her know the car doesn't run unless everyone is buckled in properly... I've heard of that working before for parents whose kids figure out how to unbuckle the chest clip.

If you had her in correctly, then she couldn't get out in the first place.



Think about it. :roll:



All I'm saying is, I'm tired of people bitching about keeping their kids entertained. Entertainment is the last thing to think about when your kid is in their car seat.
My kids scream bloody murder sometimes because they don't like being in their seat, but guess what, they're safe and they're gonna stay that way.
Turn the music up and ignore her if she whines.

We don't have chest clips on our carseats. o_O they look so unsafe.



OP my daughter did this too, I had to keep telling her to put her arms back though, it took a bit but it worked, now she doesn't do it.

what i did when my kids were little enough to be in a car seat and they would crawl out. i said we were going to Grandpas house. Not even a block from the house they had both gotten out of their seats. I promptly turned the car around and told them ..'whey you are ready to stay in your seat we will go visit Grandpa" about 20 minutes later they both came to me stating they were read to go and they said they will stay in their seats. They never got out of them again. this trick would probably work with just about anything they like to do. McDonalds or Burger king would probably be good ones also. And explain the situation to them and why you went back home. Do not just jump back in the car with them. Make them come to you and say they will stay in their seats :)
