Baby in the Car Seat

I'm typing this on my laptop as I sit in a chair on the driveway with baby in the car seat asleep. I just didn't have the heart to wake her - she needed a nap - and when we got home from running an errand, I decided to leave her in the car seat with the car doors open to let her sleep.

Of course, my husband will be home soon, and we'll see how he reacts to this. Another crazy move by his crazy wife?

Am I the only one who knowingly leaves baby in the car seat in the driveway at home to let the baby sleep?

Actually, I know I'm not because I learned that this move may not be a one-way ticket to Mommy Hell when I witnessed a girlfriend of mine doing the same thing - only her car was parked in her garage. She said that both she and her husband did it often rather than risking disturbing their baby's naptime.

Okay, are we the only two crazy moms doing this?

I hope we aren't the only three! My daughter is 4 months old and I have let her nap in the carseat. Now that she has outgrown the "bucket", I know I can't move her to the house without waking her.

My son, age four, has always napped in his car seat, and we've parked in the garage. He's yet to nap in his bed.

I always called it the $3/hr nap. I'd keep driving around until my son woke up because it never worked if I tried to transfer him to his crib.
