So that when you're shopping and look away for a second your child doesn't slip out and start playing on the dirty floor!!!!No kidding! My sister and I were shopping for a snow suit for Nathan and as we were looking to see if the hood was detachable Nathan slipped right out of the stroller! He never made a sound! All of a sudden I look at him and he's gone! Then I saw him sitting on the floor. Thank God he didn't get hurt - my sister and I were laughing so hard we were crying! I originally didn't strap him in because it was so cold yesterday I had a heavy blanket stuffed in his stroller. Then, I figured he must be warm and took it out - this happened probably 5 minutes later.
Lesson learned - but I'm still laughing about it!
