When you come in from errands and the baby is asleep in the infant seat, do you take them out immediately or wait for them to wake up?

We have a busy, busy life and sometimes I feel guilty that my little one spends so much time in the infant seat. I bring it in and wait for her to wake up before getting her out. I feel it would only disrupt her sleep to constantly be moving her in and out of it especially when we will have to be out the door again most likely while she is still asleep. Any other moms feel this way?

  • I don't have an infant carrier for my kid (she'd be too big for it now anyway), so she gets woken up getting out of the car seat when we get home.

    With my others, I just left them in the carrier until they woke up.

  • Had no choice... we didn't have a "baby bucket" seat. I don't like them. So he was taken out of the seat every time. Though really, he only slept in the car two or three times. We never had to drive more than 5 minutes anywhere.

  • One of the best pieces of advice I got as a new mom was, "Never wake a sleeping child."

  • Seriously? I would never even consider waking a sleeping baby.

  • Never wake a sleeping baby! Unless it's around dinner time & you want them to go to bed after dinner for the night. Sleep brings on sleep.

  • If I knew they were fine and comfortable I would leave them in the seat. My first child was not a good sleeper, so I took advantage of any chance I had. My second was a great sleeper and would go right back to sleep after taking her out of her cars eat and putting her in her crib.

  • Lave em in the seat. When my son was a newborn he had to wear monitors and they had him sleep in his carseat because it was mre snug and kept him upright.
