Today on my FB newsfeed, a mom I regularly talked to that asks me for advice, posted a picture of her 6 month old front facing in an infant carrier.

You did what you could. Can't get through to them all.

The only way that she will learn is if her kid is severely hurt in a car accident.

Doesn't sound like ignorance in this case.

More like a total lack of regard for the law and concern for safety

I'd tell her just don't be surprised if she gets a ticket for child endangerment if she is ever pulled over. Those seats aren't even made to face that way.

18 mo is a lot different than 6mo in an infant carrier. IMO.

The thing is, she said her sons pediatrician said it was okay.

Its not a law in some states to RF until one. As long as the child is over 20 lbs its deemed ok.



I FF my son is 7 months. He screams his head off the whole ride when RFing so when he hit 20lbs (22.9 to be exact) we consulted with his pedi and turned him FFing.

I mean, I wouldn't have busted out a link after she said "my Dr said it's fine" because that right there shows her stance or concern on the matter.
And then I would have deleted her. Sadly the out of sight, out of mind approach is what I'd need to take to not get too emotionally involved.
