Carr wrote that the baby was in the right size seat for his size and was placed rear-facing, which is correct for children under two. The baby was also in the correct location in the backseat of the vehicle.
What caught Carr's eye was the baby's placement in the actual seat. She said the baby should not have been swaddled while buckled into the seat. If the family wanted to cover the baby up, they should have put the blanket over the car seat instead. Carr also noted that both straps should have been over the baby's shoulders and snug.
Many noticed that the car seat did not have a five-point harness system, but that is not unusual in European car seats.
