Usually I post on the diapering board, but I've decided to expand my horizons to other MDC forums and came across this thread. As a pp mentioned, this contraption is supposed to be used for "quick trips", but unfortunately, we live in a society that tends to take the easy way out and I'm sure that parents that own this thing use it for more than quick trips.

When I push my stroller, I can still see my baby, he's in front of me, not behind me so I can shoo away any unwanted visitors. I do believe there MAY be a time and a place for something like this, but I also feel bad for the child whose parents decide that this takes the place of the stroller ALL the time

My biggest concern w/ such a thing would be debri flying around and hitting your precious babe. (Flying debri is also a danger for babies in strollers which are a bit higer up.) Being so low down does create the potential for someone not looking to kick or trip over your babe.
I was thinking for a fleeting moment that at the airport it might be nice to just pop your carrier carseat on this thing and get to your next flight, until I thought about the hussle and bussle surrounding airports and crazy people who never look down. My child walking next to me has been pushed over by someone in a hurry.
This item is so low down someone could drop something on the babe and kill the babe accidently!
It's a bad "improvement" to the already marketed baby carrier stroller availabe through onestepahead.com at least that one is higher up and has babe facing you.

i would prefer to use my sling than that.. that...

with my sling, my baby is safe in my arms, or almost. I can nurse when I want. I am attentive to my baby's needs and what's more, I'm not trying to negotiate a contraption through crowds that could get my baby hurt.

My toddler goes into my stroller only because he's way to heavy for me to carry him.

I find it a little funny that this is a CARSEAT attachment, the safety of this being in issue is somewhat ironic to me. This child was in the car (we know the risks of the auto, right?)...flying debri and strollers ~ a serious danger?
