    I admit I haven't read the book VP. But I just wanted to say something. It interests me that this is such an issue of contention, that if people admit to SOS then other people on here freak out so much. I mean, even if I did use it, I doubt I would admit it on this forum. I don't get it. Why is it ok to have a go at someone else's parenting choice like that? If you don't like it, don't do it. There are plenty of things I read on here that I think are ridiculous - but I wouldn't say it to anyone. Why is this subject exempt from manners? People get so rude about it it. As I said, I haven't actually read the book. But I have read Pinky McKays Toddler Tactics and I thought it really wasn't the book for me or my kids. I don't go around telling people that like Pinky that they are wrong though

    Houdini straps are sometimes absolutely needed, and were recommended to me by our occupational therapist. Sometimes Autistic kids (especially if they are double jointed) can get out of their car seats with absolutely no effort at all. I would rather my child have a houdini strap on rather than dancing around the back in the wagon part of the car which he used to do bout every minute in every drive we ever did.

    Fantastic post beebs I couldn't agree with you more. I'm sure there are plenty of "closet" TH users who are too scared to admit it for fear of the judgement and mud slinging. Eloquently put as usual!!!

    Totally agree, I think they're great if they're used for the purpose they were intended for.

    Which is? Honest question. I've only seen them on carseats?

    I'm happy to be wrong but I'm quite certain that you're not supposed to swaddle babies in car seats.

    Houdini stop is to stop toddlers escaping, not to prevent swaddled babies from coming out of their car seats in an accident.

    Just did a little google and came up with "No, not safe (I'm a certified car seat technician). Even if there are holes for the straps and the product says you can (very irresponsible of the company IMO) it puts too much fabric between harness and baby. All the extra fabric compresses in an accident and the baby could come out of the seat."
