Stupid hospital rules

I understand why the rule is there, but I don't like it. We are not planning on an infant carseat for our next child, but all the hospitals in our area require bringing the carseat into the hospital to have a seat check before allowing newborns to go home. I really don't wanna be rolled to my car in a wheelchair with a Graco SmartSeat on my lap. Lol

We went right to the larger carseat for our first child. We told them they were welcome to walk to our car and check the seat there. That is what they did.

Couldn't they just follow you out to the car and check out the car seat?

 Yeah, I can understand how that would be frustrating. Are you going to borrow one then?

Get a cheapie seat and donate it if ur going the convertible route or borrow a friends . I ended up getting a travel system because we have those same rules here . It sucks I wanted to just use convertible but I do like the system I got

Idk, I've never given birth at this one. The previous one refused. So it was a good thing we started with an infant seat for DS. We already gave it away though.
