  • If the doctor said it could be any day now, then i would go ahead and put it in now. Thats just one less thing to worry and stress about when you do go into labor.

  • We put the Base in about 2 months before my due date (all me babies came early) I didn't see what state you were in, but I have had 2 (Babies) in one state and 2 in another, and both hospitals wouldn't discharge the Baby without showing them the Car seat first. So it might be a good idea, to have it in the trunk of your Car, to have it available, if this is a requirement. The nurse even escorted us downstairs and outside to our Car, and made sure we put the Baby in the Car seat Properly. Good Luck with your little one! :-)

  • If you are anxious then just put them in. It isn't going to hurt anything. Do you have your bag for the hospital backed as well?
