Nevertheless, a baby is not harmed by sitting for a short time in a car seat, and when newborn babies have to go home from the hospital, they are often transported home by car. However, it is not recommended that infants be strapped into a car seat for more than 30 to 40 minutes at a time. If it is necessary to drive a longer trip, the baby can in rare cases sit in a car seat for two hours at a time.
In that case, it is recommended to take breaks along the way so that the baby can get up from the chair, put on a dry diaper, and get his body moved.
