Wait a second... K. P. Walsh Due August 5; Japan 1385 posts

So a friend of mine of facebook (yes a fb related question) posted a pic of her baby in her car seat. The pic was more of the baby being cute rather than being in the car seat, but I noticed baby was in a forward facing car seat. It looks like one of ones that's only ff and isn't rf at all.
The concerning part is that her baby is younger than mine. My daughter is about to be 9 months, so I'd guess her LO is 7 months or about to be 8 months.
I'm thinking... wait a second.. isn't her LO too young/small to be in a ff car seat? Don't babies have to be 1 year old AND meet the height and weight requirements? Not just one or the other?
Should I say something or no?
My intention is not to be rude or critical, but that isn't safe, is it?
I don't want to sound like a know - it - all, but...

yeah. it looked like she took the picture from the back seat. baby was buckled in and the head rests on the back seat were behind the baby, and I could see the car door, so that's why I know she was ff.

Then I would. It seems like she might be driving around like that. maybe she dosent know and she can get into a lot of trouble and its dangerous. I would message her. Especially if shes your friend.

i just saw pics of all 3 of my cousins in car seats. one is an infant under a year forward facing in an infant bucket seat using the seat belt to hold the baby in the seat. the other one is 9 months older with straps at his elbows and a puffy coat on. the other one has his chest clip at his belly

i would say something. for all you know she could get into an accident and hurt the baby or she could get pulled over and get a huge ticket for the baby not being in proper seating. im sure she'll understand if you approach her right.
