    When is the best time to put the car seat in the car ready? I ordered mine and it came yesterday and whenever i get anything new i always want to either assemble it or test it out :haha: but we put the car seat in the car yesterday fitted safey and everything.. but now i dont know weather to leave it in or take it out till nearer the time?

    Whats everyone else doing?

    Ours hasn't arrived yet, but I'm just going to leave it in the house until it's needed. Hubby has been trained by the store staff how to get the isofix and everything in. So he can just get it all sorted before he comes to pick me and baby up at the hospital. :) I always want to play with all my new stuff as well. I just keep telling myself - the less weight the car has to carry the less petrol it uses. *laughs*

    btw. love your christmas bump picture. So sweet :)

    I put the base in yesterday and I'm gonna leave it in now.

    The seat is gonna stay in the house until I need it, it might get cold & damp if you leave it in the car all the time?! I dunno, I've just instructed my mum to pick me up from the hospital in my car and not to forget the car seat hehe! xx

    Hmmmm....won't do any harm to leave it in :) and you can get all excited everytime you get in your car hehe!!

    But your dad might have to go home if you're staying overnight, suppose it depends how long you're in for xx

    if its in i dont see a problem with leaving it there, as for it getting cold and damp well the bigger car seats are in cars all the time and there fine? Charlies car seat is in the car constantly because its not practical to take it in and out plus i have no reason to take it in and out? our car seat is in the cubbard near the front door waiting to be put in the car, its staying in there untill after xmas but i dont have any reason to put it in the car because if anything does happen we'll just pick it up on the way out, plus OH is going to pick family up on the 22nd so he needs the car empty anyway, after xmas when we go to visit family at home i'll be putting the car seat in and taking it with us just incase i go in too labour while we're away for new year and it'll probably stay there along with the hospital bags untill i need it!

    Yeah i might take it out it was just fact about where to put it cause our house is cluttered at min all babys stuff shuved in one room in boxes still.. and my sisters coming back for christmas so i need to move all that stuff into garage thats been converted into like a room .. so it would be better left in the car as we have no one to pick up take anywhere .. its just if my dads going to be taking me to the hospital when it all happens hell have to come home to fetch it but i spose it wouldnt really matter.. cause he might have to anyway if i stay in hospital or something .. maybe if were rushing he could just put it in the boot :haha: and fix it in when i come out x

    I'm going to attempt to fit mine in my car in the next day or two then it'll come back in the house until we need it. Ours doesn't have a carseat base though.

    well then i would say theres not much point in fitting it in the car :rofl: u just have too bring it in too the hospital too carry baby to the car in anyway, maybe just putting it in the boot is the best idea, thats were ours will probably be after xmas!

    No but i mean it needs to go in like week before my due date or something because my dad is the only one who can take me to hospital as everyone else lives a good 45 mins away! .. and it might take like 20=30 mins to get to the hospital and id rather my dad have it all ready and there he could always go back home and get it and come back hospital again but that seems abit pointless lol
