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.
Holey Moley! Just clicked the link to the houdini straps, noticed she has a forum, clicked on that, and you have to pay $58 a year to post in the forum!!!!!
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.
