Poor baby I could not believe I forgot to fits the seat in the car. I put my toddle in the car seat belted him in and jumped in the car and drive off to do school pick up.
I came to a stop and my poor baby went forward and hit his face and nose on the dashboard in the front seat. He cried and I give him a cuddle. I feel so bad I did not check the car seat I just belted him in the car seat and went to pick up my other child I was rushing and I was late. I know that is no excuse. I should of double checked. . If I never stopped to let the lady go I would of been fine but the seat just went forward so hard. He seem fine and eating and sleeping ok. No bruising but I think he might have a fracture. Do you think I need to check it out???

It's very dangerous to have a baby seat in the front, especially with airbags. I would say she has a backseat as well since she was picking up her other child.

Any child under a certain age certainly in a car seat is not allowed in the front seat, too dangerous plus the impact of the airbag can cause a lot of damage to infants... Yes please bring him in as soon as you can due to internal injuries..

Jasmine, just because you don't agree with a post is no reason to flag it.

Bajaj, go enroll yourself in a parenting course. You need some guidance, if you think that putting a toddler in the FRONT SEAT is ok at ANY point in time.

Get your kid checked out by the physician, because he's got a head injury.

Amy i agree with Jodi and just because some cars dont have back seats doesnt make it less ilegal here where i live.And family people usualy dont have those little "sport" cars with no back seats and space in the boot.

I'm assuming she has a back seat, as she was heading off with the baby in the front for school pick up, so that's more than one kid in a car with no back seat.

Its ilegal by us to have a baby /small child on the front seat. But yes,definatly get a check up by the doctor,and next time double check the car seat.You are lucky that nothing worse happened.

Do you have him in the front seat? That's the most dangerous spot.
Yes you should get him checked out,.

Yes, you need to get it checked out!! ANY hit to the head (which this was) needs to be checked out.
