My best friend has a 9 month old son who weighs approx 22lbs & she just bought him a brand new car seat. The only problem with the car seat is that it's a forward facing only seat & she's already installed it & using it. We live in Texas & here the law says 20lbs AND 1 year before turning them around.
I'm an extended rear-facer mom (my son is 15 months & will be rear-facing for as long as possible). I don't want to be THAT mom who pushes her beliefs & opinions onto someone else. But, at the same time I just want my best friend's baby to be safe...plus it's against the law to forward face him. How do approach the subject? Do I just not say anything? Even though she's my best friend, I still feel weird about talking to her about this.
