Believe it or not, selling or giving away used car seats is actually illegal in Florida.  They say it is for recalls.

No it is not should probably get facts right before you say that !! Might be illegal in another state but not here !

Car Seats

  • According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, all  children, ages five and under must be restrained in a child restraint device  that has been crash-tested and federally approved. There is no law against  selling used car  seats, however all car seats should be under six years old, in good  condition, and should retain the manufacturers label according to the Juvenile  Products Manufacturers Association. In addition, car seats that have been in a crash, even a minor one,  should be discarded,as their safety is no longer  ensured.

My mistake.  That is what we were told by the hospital.  I guess the law changed.  Good luck.
