The people who make the carts made them with them on their, so they have been tested with these type on them. They are not as heavy as car seat that would go in the car. They also have weight limits on them.

The ones we have at our stores are in good shape as well. They stay inside, so they stay in good shape

Okay, and? If an infant seat clicks in to the cart.. how are the two any different from one another?

Oh I'm sure if there is a big baby like mine the seat built with carts aren't safe then either. My little man is a big boy

Yes same here, shopping trolleys aren't kept outside in UK supermarkets.

Because our car seats that go in the car haven't been tested with the cart.

1. The seat is built in to the trolley so it isn't loosely attached.
2. The seats are placed in such a manner that the weight distribution is better.
3. They also have to be labelled with clear weight restrictions, as the onky thing being added to the trolley is the child then that is the only weight they need to know. You aren't having to guess the weight of your child and car seat, the weight restrictions are crystal clear.
4. I'm unaware of how sturdy your carts or and the weight of them but our trolleys are very sturdy and heavy. Also our trolleys cannot be tall and thin for example they have to be a certain minimum width to distribute the weight properly.

:shock: That is just ridiculous. All our supermarkets have trolley shelters all over the car park, you just put your shopping in your car return it to the nearest trolley shelter and one of the supermarket staff collect them all like every half hour.

Sorry too. When I'm passionate about something I get on a roll. My intentions were only to let moms know how unsafe it is. Like myself and you we didn't know at one time how unsafe it was, we know now

Yeah here we don't even have those kind with the infant seat. Also all our shopping carts are dirty and rusty. And yes there are areas to put them in the parking lot but half the people leave them wherever the hell they want.
Even if they did have the infant seats in them I would NEVER put a baby in them and especially not at Walmart like everyone is saying lol I avoid Walmart like the plague because where I live, that's where all the really nasty ghetto poeple go that don't take care of their own kids let alone themselves or the store's belongings.

The carts here fit car seats... there's a locking mechanism at the back that clips on. I mean, you can't push the cart like you're in a race or make sharp ass turns, but it's safe assuming a responsible parent is pushing the cart.

Just because something works best for you doesn't mean it works best for everyone. Like I said when I was doing it before I didn't know it was THAT unsafe but even now that I know if I'm in the same position with this baby that I was in with my son I WILL do it again.
I would much rather make the extra effort to make sure the care wouldn't tip over(just like I have ALWAYS done anyway) than my son get some kind of infection or disease or scream for an hour. If a baby cries it's for a reason. I don't like it when people use that excuse for RF vs FF. My son is 2yrs 8 months and still RFing and will as long as his MyRide allows. However, you can't FF and take extra precaution like you can place a baby in a shopping cart and take extra precaution.
