  • Go to a carseat safety stop and make sure the carseat is put in correctly and you should be fine. It is no different then driving while you are pregnant.

  • u have been driving with the baby in the car for the last 9 months! just read the car seat safety manual and have the nurse inspect ur carseat before u go home. if u go a steady safe speed like 65-70 and just let people pass u on the freeway then u will be fine! u have to drive ur baby home somehow so dont stress!
