i just needed to vent to other mommies.
on our way home from work tonight, owen coughed, hit his gag and proceeded to vomit ALL OVER himself and his carseat.
we pulled over, i cleaned up owen while DH made due with extra clothes and wipes from owen's diaper bag to clean the seat up enough to get home (another 45 mins).
when we got home, i wanted to take the carseat cover off to throw it straight in the washer so it'd be ready for tomorrow.
for whatever reason the manufacturerer of this carseat (which we purchased beause of the great safety reviews) decided it was necessary for me to remove 8, YES 8, screws on the back of the carseat for me to unhook the straps to get the cover off the carseat.
wouldn't it make more sense for them to do what my infant carrier seat did and put velcroed slots in the seat cover so you could remove the carseat cover without disassembling the carseat and possibly hinder the safety performance?!
i feel better. thank you for listening.....
