Today I have two questions that I hope you can help me with
Firstly, when Immy was a newborn we went straight with a carseat, no capsule carrier. I didn’t think it was necessary. I thought a combination of baby carrier and pram would do for most scenarios and it did. This time I am not so sure. Wouldn’t a capsule be useful for the twice daily, two to three times weekly kindy drop off and pick ups? Times when I am unlikely to get the pram out and might want to minimally disturb a (hopefully) sleeping baby? Any mamas of preschoolers and newborns able to shed light on how they managed this one???
Second question… Immy’s carseat has always been in the middle or too the left of the car (behind the passenger seat which, for non-Australian readers, is the footpath/non-traffic side in Australia). When the baby comes along who goes where??? Does the preschooler go on the traffic side of the car or the baby? Or is it best to have one in the middle and one to the left hand side? Who gets buckled in and out first? How do you manage?
