This is the epitome of what pisses me off.

What really depresses me is that in this stunted, bourgeois sterile hell of a society, the only way new parents can find to express these toweringly powerful unfamiliar emotions of love, protectiveness and joy is to SPEND more and more and more on superfluous equipment and gadgetry for their baby.

A friend of mine was so choked with pride and delight when they were expecting their first child that it was a joy to see, I had never seen him stand up really straight before! So they went out and bought a moses basket, a carrycot, a travel cot, a swing crib, two pushchairs, a baby swing, a vibrating bloody baby seat - it's the sheer naked cynicism of these profiteering capitalist monsters who have identified a bottomless source of revenue in the insecurity and heightened emotional state of new parents. They prey upon our most precious human experiences to line their filthy pockets.

Bit long, sorry.

I always had to try and carry the DS's car seats infront of me like that - as I simply couldn't hold it by my side - ended up with bruises all over my legs carrying down on the side.

if i hung ds2 round my neck in his car seat, i would be crawling on my hands and knees. the seat alone weighs a ton!
also would have thought you would tons of bruises with this contraption on, muchmore than when you carry it normally, the way it is intended to be carried, like a basket?

you've obivously never had a child that would instantly wake and SCREAM if you tried to take them out of the car seat to move them into the house/whereever you're going if they were asleep.........

I had one of those children and it was hell - though not sure I'd buy one of these.
