So DH and I were out and had DS in his stroller. It's a travel system stroller so he just stays in his car seat. DS was getting fussy so I took him out for a bit to calm him down. I figure that he needs to be fed so we decide to head back to the truck where I can feed him in the back seat. Since I was just going to take him out again when we got to the truck I didn't strap him into his seat. On our way to the truck DS falls asleep so we then decide to go home first before feeding him. It's about a 15 min drive. So DH puts his car seat in the truck and we drive home.
When I went to take him out I realized that he was never strapped in the whole way home! OMG!!! Huge parent FAIL!!! I can't believe I did that! I feel so guilty and can't stop thinking about what could have happened. It also has brought back all the guilt I felt when we lost Ian. I thought I had put that guilt behind me.
I have been crying and clinging to DS. I feel so horrible!
