Car Seat Broke!

I was moving one of our Evenflo Symphony 65 LX seats from behind the passenger to the center of the car, picked it up and some of the foam broke!!!! Idk what to do! It was bought in the beginning of this month, so I guess I can take it back to Babies R Us. I've never heard of this happening! I wasn't being rough on it and I am not super strong.

I've heard of this happening. Some manufacturers don't consider it a safety problem and you can tape it back in, but since yours is so new I'd take it back. If it weren't new I'd suggest calling the manufacturer and asking what to do.

I would tape it and call them Monday. They should replace it. I wouldn't take it back because its not bru fault.

I wouldn't have thought to duct tape it. Guess I'll do that in the morning!

It happened to mine shortly after we bought it, but since it was totally my fault I just checked to make sure it was safe and taped it back together. It's our back-up seat, so I wasn't TOO worried about it, but still.

I have totally duct taped many of my britax carseats lol. Airports tend to be rough on the styrofoam, which is usually when I had to tape them

That right there is a perfect example of why you shouldn't check car seats.

I travel with mine in padded car seat bags. Also wrapped in a blanket for extra padding. You should try that!

You should never check car seats, you should use them on the plane
