And it was the nanny's fault. She made a left turn and didn't see an ONCOMING car. It T-boned her Jeep Liberty on the drivers side. The same side my baby's car seat is on.
When I saw an email from my husband to "call me. house phone" I panicked.
When he told me that Millie was in an accident and needed to go to the ER I hyperventilated.
When I got home Millie was fine (but not really sure how fine) so per pedi's recommendation we took her to the ER. She needs to be watched for 48 hours, but other than that nothing is wrong.
I am so, so, thankful. this could have been so much worse. Dh was happy I wasn't there to see the car that was totaled. Omg. So am I.
I am firing the nanny. I understand it was an "accident", but how do I trust her driving ever again. Not to mention the other issues I have with her.
One thing I learned... If you have side air bags, do not put the car seat (infant) next to the door. If they had deployed she could have been really hurt. Thankfully in this case they didn't. A convertible probably would have been fine though, in a front facing position.
I am still a bit a wreck with all of this. But I am so thankful that there are devices made to ensure the safety of our babies.
Just wanted to share.
