Has anyone else noticed that the photo on the Community front page that links to this forum is a baby wearing a fluffy jacket in a car seat with the chest clip too low?  Please tell me if I'm being crazy and overreacting...but maybe someone could change that picture?

I see - here:

Yeah on the puffy jacket, plus it looks like a very loose strapping job.

 

Dunno about the clip - I thought it was supposed to be armpit height, and it looks the right height to me.

Yeah, it does look at armpit level of the jacket, but it's hard to tell whether it's at the baby's armpit level. Hence the problem with jackets! It just looks like it's low to me when I look at the distance from the baby's chin.

The retainer clip is fine but the harness is far too loose.

Well, since it has nothing at all to do with car seats and is just a cute picture of a baby....LOL.
