Just spoken to my Ex and he has taken my 4 yo DD out in the car to a place 20mins away, and hasn't put her in her car seat.

I'm furious, am I over reacting?

I wouldn't be impressed either. As her dad he should have everything he needs for when she visits. Even if that means taking your car seat. Laziness IMO

YANBU. Did he give a reason?

Why hasn't he? I wouldn't be very happy tbh especially if he has it with him, it only takes a few seconds surely?

I have the car seat at my house, but i'm a 2min walk from his house, and would have taken it up. I called him to ask him if he wanted it and he was already in the car driving (friend driving not him). I said I couldn't believe he hadn't come and got it, and he said it was a non issue shock

There is no emergency, just sunday dinner at a pub.

Id be livid. Beyond livid. I'm obsessive about car seats since having an accident with DS in car, in which he would have definitely died had he not been strapped in a proper car seat.

Was there a reason?

Oh god Imagine your scaring me sad

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Sun 21-Apr-13 14:29:22

Yeah the reason was he didn't think it was a problem shock

YANBU! I'd be furious! A "non-issue"?! I want to beat him on your behalf!

Actually, car seats for a 4 year old aren't particularly expensive, he needs to go out and buy one so he doesn't have to rely on you for it.

So I am right to be fuming!

I don't mind taking it round, he doesn't take her out in cars often, I just thought he would have the sense to put her in a bleeding car seat when he did!

I would be livid. Absolutely furious. I was reading on Which about why they were so important just yesterday and its scary reading. He needs to get one to have whenever he needs one.

Phone the police so they can catch him leaving the pub.

You can get a booster for a fiver. There is no excuse for a 4yo's father not to possess a car seat.

Planned outing is not an emergency. He is breaking the law. Twat.
