car seat
WTF; surely you only need one if you were planning to, um, take a car? I guess maybe a lot of non-car-having people get a cab? Is there no bus (surely you don't use a car seat on a bus? I see loads of people with prams on the bus)?

I think the idea is that you do take the newborn in a carseat even in the bus, as being safer than carrying her in your arms - yes, you do see people with prams in buses, but a newborn needs to go in a carrycot style pram bit which doesn't secure her in case of accident. To be honest, though, a sling will hold a baby just as well as a car seat, if not better IMHO.

Unless you or someone else falls on her. A carryseat has rigidities useful in the event of vehicle accidents...

I'm not antinature, but even buses aren't natural.
