Weird Question!! About Infant Car Seats

Do all of the infant car seats click onto grocery carts? Saw a baby in its car seat and it clicked onto the grocery cart by the handle of the cart and wanted to know if every car seat will do this or is this also something to look for in a car seat?

  • Go on youtube and search for the Home Depot video of the parent who had their kid on top of a cart.

    You should put an infant carrier up in the seat portion of the cart. Buy a stroller with a large basket..that's what I grocery shopped with or baby wear when shopping

  • Just chiming in to say PLEASE never ever ever do this! It's so, so dangerous! Babies have died from carts tipping over or seats falling :(

  • There's an article about this on Safety 1st's Facebook page. There are some sad stories out there. Don't do it.

  • NO...and in additional to all the concerns above there is also the concern that clicking it on a cart damages the clicking mechanism...which is what holds the seat secure in a car.  Thereby potentially making it useless in a car crash.

    So not worth the risk.  I wore my daughter until she was old enough to sit in the seat of a cart...I still wear her should she not be in the mood to be in the cart.

    No. And the ones that can aren't made for that. You are risking damaging the locking mechanism which would NOT be good in the event of a crash.

    Plus i've seen carts tip over with the infant seat on top. Also not good!

    just use your stroller or put the infant seat in the basket.

    100% agree with this.
