    How long are you allowed to leave a baby in a car seat for?

    Emma sleeps best in her car seat - probably because she's fast asleep from the car journey, lol, but whenever I take her out of it she wakes right up!

    I know you're not meant to leave newborns in for very long but what age is a baby classed as a newborn til?

    i think they say not to leave them in for longer than 2 hours because of their developing spine and its better for them to be layed straight than hunched up, not sure if thats any help
