    Default Baby has started playing with car seat buckle!

    My 10mo daughter doesn't go in the car seat in my husbands car very often (she's usually in my car), but today I was driving his car with her and I could hear her pressing the button to undo her seatbelt! I started talking to her and passed her a toy to distract her but she did it the whole way home. I don't think she has the strength to undo it but I'm scared she might get it undone without me noticing! Any idea what I can do? Would wrapping a hand towel or something around it after she's buckled in potentially affect the safety of the seat in a crash?

    If a 10 month old can undo the buckle I would be getting a new seat. My 4yr old doesn't have the strength to undo her little sisters buckle so I would be worried.
    I think you can get plastic things to put over the button - not sure what they are called.

    My one year old ds plays with the buckle sometimes but can't get it undone. So he's given up and I hope he's forgotten about trying for a while. If he ever did undo it then I would probably invent something to secure it like a hand towel like you suggested.

    Try a Velcro dot on the button, the rough, harsh side.

    You can take out the buckle and turn it around and put back in the the red press part is against her body instead of facing out.

    Still pretty easy for an adult to un-do but very difficult for a baby
