Every time I see a kid not buckled into their seat properly I think back to a post from The Baby Guy making a joke saying something along the lines of "PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO POST PICTURES ON FACEBOOK OF THEIR KIDS IN CAR SEATS UNLESS THEY'RE BUCKLED CORRECTLY!" It wasn't funny - but it made me laugh. It was a light way to to start a convo about something super serious. He is a pro at that and if you're not already a fan, you should be. So, today a friend shared this image from The Natural Parent Magazine... and it made me think of that moment, so I thought it absolutely belonged here. It is just a quick and easy reminder of how a 5 point harness should look when buckled correctly.

It is such a quick and easy adjustment to make sure the straps are tightened and buckled correctly... The picture is a great reminder and I just try to keep the clip between nipples & collar bone... and I believe the rule of thumb is that you shouldn't be able to pinch the strap fabric between your fingers (someone correct be if I'm wrong - that is what I do for Rozzlyn) I adjust her straps nearly every time I put her in the seat to make sure they're correct. I couldn't live with myself if she flew out of the top in an accident because the buckle wasn't in the correct place. Hopefully this information helps, and sorry if it is repetitive... just trying to make sure all the babies of the world are safe in their seats! <3
