She just seems so comfortable and she falls asleep easier in it. Of course I don't leave the seatbelt straps on so she's not constrained when she's just sitting there. Is this bad?Answer Question

I know it is easier, but it can impede her breathing. I did with my first son and never had a problem, but after reading an article about it, we no longer do it.

Yes. The baby's head is heavy and can drop and cut off breathing. Babies die from this every year even in cars and it's not recommended. It is also not good for their developing organs to be in that position. They make approved car beds if your baby is premature, if your baby is in the car a lot, or if you want to do this. They aren't just for premature babies but that's how they are advertised.

Yes, I think it actually is bad. A while back in 2006, when my son was born they came out with a warning not to let infants sleep unattended for a long period of time in a car seat. Google it. It seems that when they are in it, they're backs are curved and when they fall asleep, their head can drop forward and cut off the air supply. Get a bouncy seat that is reclined and the head is tilted slightly back. Better safe then sorry.
