I will be 37 weeks pregnant on Monday and was just wondering at what point everyone put their car seat (or base) in their car(s)?
I don’t want to have to worry about it not being done, but at the same time I feel kind of silly driving around for too long with a car seat but no baby.
The police station in my town holds a car seat clinic on the last Wed. of every month (you can make an apt. for that day to get them to check for proper installation). If I wait until then, I’ll be only 4 short days away from my ‘due date’.
Just wondering what you ladies/gentlemen think 🙂

Hmmm…. I honestly cannot remember when we put the seat in when I had my DS.. =/
I think that when you’re ready to should be fine though… who cares if you’re still preggers for a few weeks 😉
I would probably go ahead and do it and then have it checked either at the police station that day or even take it by the nearest fire station whenever… I’m sure that if you went and asked for them to check it they would =)

We put it in at 37 weeks, and then only left the base in b/c it was my husband’s car and he felt weird with a car seat in it. We kept the seat with our bags that were packed and ready to go. It ended up staying there for 3 weeks until she came, but better safe than sorry!

i wish we had done it earlier! i went into labor at 35 weeks and it was more than stressful installing the car seat as we were leaving the hospital! i recommend getting it out of the way as early as you can.
