Someone drove into the back on me earlier - the bumper is a mess & the boot isn't closing as easily.

Baby seems fine.

What is the score using the carseat again?
Do I need to get a new one?

All advice gratefully received.

New car seat needed and your insurers shoud pay for it.

new car seat. it's had a fair knock, and isn't going to be safe.

Definately get a new one. And I mean a NEW one. I get really annoyed by people buying second hand ones.

erm hippomother, I'm asking if I need to replace my carseat as I'm concerned for the welfare of my baby. Was there any suggestion of secondhand?

If baby only seems fine do you think they need a check up?

Are you okay?

When I say fine, I mean I haven't had her checked, she is being in her manner. The first thing I did was check her & she seemed OK, wasn't crying. She'd started to cry a little by the time I drove off, but it had been a while swopping details etc.

We were at a standstill in traffic when we got hit.

The bottom of my back seem a little odd, ut not sure if its in my head. My wrist still with CT from pregnancy feels a little worse.

Baby still seems her usual self.

No, I was just putting my point across. Relax.
