once baby is born you have to stay in hosp for i think 6 hours. so when they give you the all clear and say you can go home. get hubby to pop and get it from the car. you dont want it there too early or you will be tripping up over it. x
im not sure as this is my first but my midwife said that the drs have to do the checks on the newborns and they wont do it for 6h. and they have to make sure that baby is feeding well etc before they let you home. x
Its prob different procedures everywhere but both of mine were fed about an hour ish after birth and my GP came to my house to do the checks they need, I think they have to do it after 6 hours but before they are 72 hours old.
Both mine were born on Sunday's (9.42am and 4.27am) and my GP came round on the Monday morning
Oh also - If your OH goes to get the carseat he can take the bags out at the same time
Put it in your car a few weeks prior to your due date. You should have the carseat with you at the hospital so you have it ready when you check out. Most hospitals require you to put the baby in the carseat in the maternity room so they can make sure you know how to buckle a baby in.
My friend didn't have a car and in the labour rooms were we gave birth, there was large toilets in the room and she put hers in there so it was out the way. You won't be the first mum to be in that situation so you are best to ask your hospital what to do. They may store it for you in an empty room or something xx
