They shouldn't be used. It is the AAP recommendation.
It irks me when people use the argument of "We survived as kids. Our parents survived."
...not everyone survived. You were just lucky. That is why there are new recommendations, improved safety regulations, and recalls. Sure, it is not the law yet, but laws change. There is evidence and research that shows why they should not be used. They are banned in Chicago (good for Chicago!).
People should be aware of there risks.
...and since when does someone on the Bump telling you you can't use it mean that their say is final? If you know the risks and still want to use them, that is your choice.
