Car Seat Safety: Mae Alderman is bravely confessing her unsafe cat seat mistakes in order to help new parents out. The young mom recently realized that she made a grave mistake with her child in the back seat of her car, thanks to a Facebook Time Hop photo.
According to reports, a photo of her now 7-year-old boy back when he was just 11-months-old prompted her to reassess some of the mistakes she made when she was a first-time mom still trying to learn the ropes of this thing we call parenthood.
In a Facebook post that has now gone viral, she says that he was a “big, very active baby and had outgrown his infant carrier seat, so I did what I thought came next.”
She continued to explain that she has no idea that rear-facing car seats were even possible and that there were car seats that existed between the infant carrier and booster stages.
And while a lot of parents are shocked over her confession, you need to hear what she has to say. I’m sure that a lot of parents have been in her same exact situation and simply aren’t aware of all the important care safety rules out there.
