when you took your baby(s) home from the hospital ....

who drove? where did you sit?

... my husband drove and I sat up front w/ him and we talked, held hands, snuggled a little. Whenever I watch "baby story" and stuff on TV the Mom always sits in back w/ the newborn. I feel weird that I didn't! She was asleep and fine, I wanted to be in my normal seat w/ my hubby!

  • I sat up front too. the ones on TV usually have a camera man in the front seat so they can video tape for the show.

  • When I had my 2 kids i sat in the back with the baby everytime. just in case we had to pull over for me to change her or eat-or they cried for some reason i didnt have to get out and switch seats. i also wanted to be close to my newbie! sitting in ur normal seat is fine! i dont see a problem with that

  • I sat up front with hubby too. I can see a 1st time mom sitting in the back, so amazed at her new creation and not wanting a minute to go by without seeing him/her. Sometimes they are expecting a long ride and want to be ready when it's time for baby to eat. And also on those tv shows, the front seat may be used by the camera man.
