Baby in a limo ??

SIL is getting married this weekend. We're getting ready at the hotel downtown (near the Reception location) and then taking a limo to the church on the northside. I will have DD with me.

Stupid question....but how do I take a baby in a limo? Do I take her carseat/base and just strap it in? I believe we're taking the same limo back to the reception or my mom could take her carseat/base with her from the church to the reception.

Re: Baby in a limo ??

  • Can you just have your mom take her in her car? 

    It sounds like a big pain in the ass to install the base in a limo, especially to get it leveled properly.  Will there even be enough room for her?  Then again, I avoid moving T's carseat at all costs because I hate trying to get it reinstalled and tight enough. 

    You could also just use the seatbelt, instead of the base installation, so read up on your manual.

  • Since DH owns a limo company, we have had the boys in the limo in their car seats many, many times.  If it's just a short distance, I would just take her infant seat and strap it in with the seat belt.  That's what we did - we didn't worry about trying to install the base.  The limo driver should not be in any hurry, and chances are you'll be able to sit right next to her.

    FYI - it's probably easiest to strap the seat in at one of the seats at the very back.  :)

    This.  When we travel we just used the seatbelt instead of the base and it worked great.

  • Thanks ladies!

    We'll just bring the infant seat. My mom can't bring her to the actual wedding because SIL would prefer that she's there for the daytime pre-wedding festivities. Mom lives too far away from downtown to come get her and then drive to the reception.

  • I'm totally going to get flamed for this, and in retrospect wasn't a great idea...but at SIL's wedding last year, the limo bus we used didn't have seatbelts so I just held Ella's infant seat.

    Yeah, I don't recommend that route...
