Don't sit your infant carrier on the floor in public!
November 17, 2012 at 10:15 PM
I was at Macy's today, there were 3 people in line. An old lady who was paying, a mom with a newborn in a carrier and me at the end.
The lady in front of me with the infant carrier sets the carrier on the floor beside her. The old lady paying in front of her takes a step backwards, when she did she tripped over the infant carrier and fell directly on top of the newborn, she had no idea the carrier was there. Old lady is hurt, baby is hurt, everyone is screaming at each other. Ambulance had to be called, both old lady and newborn went to the ER.
While out in a public place, do not sit your infant carrier on the ground!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    She was just carrying the thing around Macy's?? That's such a pain in the butt! I usually use a stroller or a Moby wrap! I hate how cumbersome infant carriers can be!

    Hmm. Sounds like someone should buy a stroller on black friday.

    That has always been one of my biggest fears. What is the proper protocol when someone falls on your child? First instinct would be to use mom super strength and chuck them off your kid. Would that be assault then?

    Wow, how horrible!!  In Macy's?  Should have probably been in a stroller or something.  Hope the baby was ok.  :)

    I always used a stroller in the mall or stores like that.  Hopefully everyone is ok.    Is it bad my first thought wasnt so nice when i read the title?
