one small change
I know AAP recommends keeping car seats rear-facing until age 2, but we went ahead and broke that “rule” this weekend.
You see, Anna hates being confined to her car seat. I can’t remember the last time a car trip was made without her twisting and fussing, wanting to get out.
But – oh my! – now that the car seat is forward facing and installed on the side (instead of the center like before), this little lady actually tolerates car rides and even I have room to wiggle. Going to places is a whole new experience without constantly having to entertain her. Plus, now, she can look outside, chat with Papa, and stretch her legs.
Best decision ever.
But I know, we will have to be even more cautious on the road now.
We want to plan a family vacation for later this summer, but I was wary about the 5-hour drive. We will have to do a couple more test runs, but maybe it’s time I finally book it!
