A month ago I was approached by one of the lovely freelance writers for romper.com. She was writing an article about rear facing and wanted an interview with me.
It was a lovely chat and I’m so glad I could be of help! The experience has been very positive – as has the feedback, and the article it self-came out really well!
Knowing what car seats to buy can be such a jungle! And I’m very happy to see that extended rear facing is getting more and more media attention. It really is needed, and when the bigger portals not only pick up a story about it but also publishes an article that is not full of holes and mistakes – it’s so incredibly refreshing to see!
I can’t help but have this… small fear inside me every time someone links me an article about car seats because of experience wise – I always find so many mistakes in them.
But not this time! The author did some really good research! And yes she also spoke to me of course, but you know how sometimes in an interview you feel you said all these wonderful things – and then a lot of it wasn’t used? And you were sort of left with a feeling of disappointment? I must admit that was one of my fears when I agreed to this interview, but I was willing to keep an open mind and not think too much about it before I had seen the finished article.
I was very pleasantly surprised, as I mentioned, so kudos to Jenn for her efforts!
It was wonderful to work with you and romper.com. I hope to do so again sometime. xx
