This is half rant, half question.
We went to a local polica station today to do a safety check on DD's new seat. First the tech kept insisting that I turn 21 lb., 14 month old DD ff. I patiently explained to her, several times, that the even the AAP had recently changed their stance, and that we would be keeping her rf until 40 lbs, the seat's weight limit.
Also, she insisted that the tether was only for use during ff, even though the manufacturer's instructions stated otherwise.
And then . . . . She put a pool noodle under the car seat?!?!?! She claims that when she had her training in May that she was told that this was acceptable. She was prompted to do this because once the latch system was tightened, DD was no longer at a 45 degree angle. The noodle did fix the problem . . . . but it just sounds too wacky to be safe?
Anyone know conclusively if this is a no go or if it's ok?
