So this just happened. I was strapping my preschooler into his car seat and the wind slightly caught one wheel and the weight of the infant car seat pulled the whole thing down over the curb. No worries~~ I was wearing A in my baby carrier so she was not in the car seat at the time (which is the only reason I had it up there in the first place).

Please, please, please parents do not put the car seat on the top part of the cart! Any car seat technician will tell you that it’s extremely unsafe. I post this PSA without judgement, as I myself did this with both boys. Up until about 2 years ago, I thought the seat was safe since it clicks into place. But the car seat in the picture was “locked” into place.

(And sure, had my baby actually been in the seat, I wouldn’t have left it unattended. But accidents happen in the blink of an eye).
