It's too bad that she's getting such crumby information from her Doctor. Unfortunately VERY FEW Dr.s have ANY car seat training. Sadly they see a lot of bad outcomes and if all they are told about a crash victim is that they were rear facing at 2+yrs old they may have no idea if they were strapped in properly or at all. It's a 2 part system. The seat must be correctly installed, and the child must be strapped in properly (Snug as a hug, is right!)

If you are noticing some other issues with her car seat use, why not give a friendly suggestion that she have her seat inspected by a tech! They can at least correct the strap issues, and even if not the best practice, if she's following the law thats all that can be asked of her!
