Whether nipping to the shop, going to visit family or heading to a hospital appointment, it’s pretty likely that at some point you will need to head out in the car with your baby.
One of the most important factors when taking your little one out and about in the car is ensuring that they have a well-fitted, comfortable car seat. Because car seats can vary so much, it’s important to get your car seat fitted by a professional, as it’s likely that your baby will need a seat specific for a newborn.
Make sure that you pick an appropriate time to take your baby out in the car. Try to avoid busy commuting hours or periods of the day when you know that you are likely to hit heavy traffic. It’s advised that you should take your newborn out after they have been fed and changed, so that they are likely to settle down once you are on the road.
