    Is that really safe?

    Advertisements
    Car seats in shopping carts? It's never seemed safe to me & I'm not all to comfortable with the idea... That shopping cart seat is definitely not big enough to fit a bulky car seat.

    But DH & I were talking about going grocery shopping tomorrow since Gav has his doctor's appointment so we'll be in the area & everything. Soo how exactly do you go about that with a newborn? Do you put the car seat in the seat? Put it in the cart & just pile the food around him? (Totally kidding ) Bring the stroller?

    Or are we just shit out of luck & no more couple shopping. I can't send DH alone to the grocery store... that'd be a nightmare & although I'm in normal clothes & walking around fine, I'm not comfortable yet going by myself.

    Can you walk with him in the stroller and have your DH push the shopping cart?

    It's not safe, and I rarely put matts carseat in a cart. Do you have a carrier for Gavin?

    It is NOT safe to put the car seat in the seat part.
    We put the car seat down in the cart part, and pretty much pile the food around
    Actually, we have to have two carts, one for the kids and one for food. Its frustrating.

    What about one of those baby slings you wear? I've seen lots of people bring those and they work well!

    I have a carrier but he's 1 pound under the weight requirement. Is that still okay?

    Our carseat is safe to put on seat of the cart. Babytrend is the only brand that you can safely do it with.

    I put addi side ways in the cart so that her cars eat rests on each side and I put the food under it. If we get a lot I just put her where the child sits and I'm always watching her.

    I'm really laid back about things like that though.
