Our 4 1/2 year old daughter is Autistic. We have had a lot of problems with her, but one of the most disturbing ones, one that seems to have no solution is that she unbuckles her car seat OVER and OVER. My husband and I worry about her safety most of all, and that if we ever get pulled over by the police for some reason, we\'d be in big trouble. We recently bought her a very expensive Sunshine Kids Radian XT child car seat with a 5 point harness. A mom of an Autistic child in my daughter\'s class had one for her son, and thought we should try it. We were just holding our breath that she wouldn\'t be able to unbuckle it. The first day she could only unbuckle the shoulder harness buckle on the top. But the next day we were horrified that she was able to unbucke both buckles, and getting out of her seat. She does seem more interested in buckling and unbuckling (over and over again -it\'s a ritual) than getting out of her seat. I think we are stuck with this almost $300 car seat. After all, the manufacturer never guaranteed a child couldn\'t unbuckle it, or suggested it for an Autistic child. Does anyone know if there is a seat made for a child like my daughter that could only be unbuckled by an adult? Is there a lock or a clip made that could go over a seat belt buckle? We are really beside ourselves, and are desperate for help.

Hey everyone. Today is Good Friday, for those who celebrate. For others, it's a paid holiday. For me, it probably means people will be calling all day because they have the day off and they waited until it was convenient for them to deal with a medical issue. I'm not feeling well today, I had a lot of trouble sleeping last night and when I finally did fall asleep I had nightmares. Not sure...
