As I said, my comment wasn't aimed at those who genuinely can't afford it. And I'm fully aware that many (including me) can't afford holidays. It was aimed at people who could afford a better car seat if they prioritised it over non essentials. I haven't once said that money makes you a better parent, but at the same time no amount of love and devotion will save your child's life in the event of a car crash
That’s such a sweeping statement to make. I think you might need to remove your head from your backside if you think everyone is enjoying an annual holiday. Priorities will include buying food, keeping a roof over their head and paying utility bills then buying the best car seat they can realistically afford. A parents love and devotion to their child is not in relation to their salary.
Not really. You see plenty of people with £600+ bugaboo or icandy pushchairs scrimping on car seats. Also most people go on holidays or have smartphones costing more than a decent car seat so I'd argue that there aren't many people who genuinely can't afford it. It's about priorities really. Car journeys are the most dangerous thing children do and a car seat is purely a machine for saving a child's life in the event of a crash. I accept that some people genuinely can't afford it but I would question their decision to have children.
That’s a really ignorant comment to make. If that’s all someone can afford then that’s just the way it is. Don’t make out somebody is a bad parent for not having the necessary disposable income.
There are plenty of rear facing seats that are suitable for up to 4 or even 6 year olds. Admittedly not in this price range though. Sadly a lot of parents care more about saving a couple of hundred quid than they do the safety of their children.
