We have our old one we can just give you. If you travel in a car, even a taxi, you must have baby in a proper car seat, rear-facing. Body weight times velocity = smushy ba. This is undesireable.

Baby bicycling horror sighted on Woodstock Rd a few years ago: Chinese dada on bike, on the back of which, tied with lots of twine, wobbled a cheap moulded plastic garden chair of child size, in which was bungee corded a smallish baby without a helmet.

If you really don't need your car seat any more that'd be fab -- thank you so much! I definitely owe you lots of nice dinners or similar -- you've been incredibly kind & generous & I hope I can repay you in some way.

Can we arrange a car-seat-and-furniture handover some time soonish (I don't want to sound demanding when you're being so lovely, but I am starting to get twitchy about Having Things To Hand)? Also, if you're interested in taking our surplus bookcases off our hands (or getting the name of our shelving chap -- though you may want to wait & see how well he does ours ;-) then let me know & I'll give you the measurements.

Point taken about the car seat -- it's just depressing to find that society really is set up so that everybody has to have a car (or at least behave as if they have a car). :-/ And part of me thinks "well if they're going to put me in the hospital against my will then they can damn well supply the means to get me & baby home again safely". That's just the grumpy badger talking, though -- I don't want to fight with them. But I do want to stay in my sett if I can! :-}

I expect you'll be in your sett for the duration, and if not, there will be a good reason for getting you out. The thing to recall is that at the end of it you have your baby on the outside of you in good shape and you and her dad will be able to take care of her. The weird bit will be sharing this: after all, you have a nine month head start on him...
