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.
