  1. Wow. This is an incredible article. At first read, I was shocked that car seats have an expiration, but I like the analogy you use. If you have expired milk or medicine, you wouldn’t put it anywhere near your kid; a car seat should be treated no different. I’ve learnt a hell of a lot. Thanks again.

    Hi I have a question? I recently bought a car seat that I didn’t notice till after I bought it that it had a label on the side that said “for display only- not for customer use” I believe it came from target. Can I use this car seat or is it not the same as one on the shelf in a box or do they just put that because when its on display people can touch it and may mess with or something? Also in your opinion what is a great car seat around the $100 range?

    • I would not buy a car seat that says “not for customer use” – and would take it back to Target (assuming this is where you bought it from) and ask/demand a refund for them selling you something that should not have been sold.
