That last comment... *facepalm!
And I tried to nicely explain that infant seats are not made to forward face, and that there are weight limits, so she could be too big. I also suggested a mirror so she would be able to see her daughter. Her response was that she doesn't do it all the time, and that it's probably time to get a new car seat... You think??
Someone else commented about how they hate seeing kids walking in parking lots without holding their parent's hand, and she commented back that she would NEVER do that because she's too much of a worry-wart.
One would think that if someone is such a worry-wart, car seat safety would be at the top of the list due to the fact that car crashes are the NUMBER ONE killer of children ages 1-14. If she knows it's wrong, she knows it's dangerous. I just can't figure out how someone can know that something is dangerous and then continue to do it!
Oh, and I just now realized that she said her daughter is ALMOST one! Now I just feel like banging my head on a wall.
Okay. Rant over.
