Car seats work only when the baby stays inside them. I’m convinced that toddlers in India cannot be expected to stay inside car seats. Here’s why –
The road is full of drama and often the action here is stranger than any science fiction movie, there are enthusiastic hawkers at traffic signals, there’s plenty of honking and Bollywood music, there are curious people staring in and excitedly smiling at the sight of a baby, not to mention the zillion lights and colors that emerge from every window, making it IMPOSSIBLE for even a determined mother (I’m not the best but I do try) to keep her son distracted enough to want to sit in one place all strapped up!
God help me!
