My 22-month old son & I were rear-ended yesterday morning. :( It wasn't serious...no one was hurt & we were able to drive away from the scene. Unfortunately, because my car is an older model, I wouldn't be surprised if the car is totaled.
Anyway, I always heard that you were supposed to replace the car seat after an accident. I read online that an older recommendation was to replace a car seat even in the most minor car accidents. And then I read that it's NOT really necessary to replace it if the accident was minor, no one was injured, you were able to drive away, etc etc.
What do y'all think? What would you do in this situation?
