Lifting babies out of car seats

There has been much talk in the press about the potential risks of leaving your baby asleep for long periods at a time in their car seats. We talk to many parents about this and the common thread is always the same. If you get home and your baby is asleep most parents will just lift out the car seat with baby in it and carry them into the house, and let them carry on sleeping. The main reason is that you don't want to wake them, and when your baby is snuggly ensconced in the car seat it is hard to get your hands under them to get them out without waking them.
Browsing through the many articles on the internet really does highlight the main issues as being that the car seat is for the protection of a baby during journeys and not as a replacement for a crib in the home. Your baby needs to lie on a flat soft surface rather than sleeping at an angle, which is ultimately better for their breathing and for their posture.
On long journeys you should try to take your child out the seat for breaks.
This is one of the main reasons that the Snugglebundl baby lifting wrap is so ideal for lifting your baby from car seats without waking them. The Snugglebundl fits safely and securely in the car seat with your baby on. In this way when you arrive home and baby is asleep you simple take the handles and lift them easily out as they sleep. The Snugglebundl is cleverly designed to keep them in the same position as you lift them so they don't even realise that they are being moved. This means that you lift them out into your arms and lay them down somewhere soft and flat without disturbing them.
The Snugglebundl is the only baby product in the world that can lift a baby out a car seat without waking, and as such our awards and commendations are rapidly growing in number.
Being able to then transfer your baby into a pram or supermarket trolley seat as they sleep, or just into your arms to carry safely indoors is obviously a real help with your day to day parenting and not having to carry that heavy car seat is a real help for not injuring your back.Go to our homepage to find out more."
