  • just bring the whole carseat in and let them sleep. In fact, I was really dissapointed when we had to switch to a toddler carseat since I cant just unclip it anymore. lol. Now though he either is tired enough to nap or isn't. I have made beds in the bottom of shopping carts before.

  • it depends.. when it's the older kid carseat, i leave my son there and i sit waiting..
    if it's the newborn carseat.. i take it out trying not to wake my son and if i'm at home, i set it on the floor and wait till he wakes up and if i gotta go to the store, put him in the cart and when he wakes up he'll see something new

  • When they were in the infant carrier seat, I took the seat in the house and let them sleep. In the bigger seats, I unbuckled them gently, picked them up, carried them in and put them on the couch or in their bed.

  • I can't tell you how many hours I have spent sitting in my garage while my DD has napped in the carseat. There are times when she falls asleep 5-10 minutes from home and she will not go back to sleep if I try to move her into the house. Skipping naps screws up her day and mine so it is better for us both to just let her sleep for 45-60 minutes.
