Our unit follows the AAP guidelines without exception. We do car seat trials on all our patients, even the full-term ones. The nurse assigned to the patient is the one who does the trial as part of the baby's stay. We are always in sight of the baby, though, so whether the baby is in a crib or the car seat, it doesn't change anything.
Our bigger challenge is ensuring parents bring in the car seat before the last minute. It's a treat to see parents walk through the doors with a car seat in their hands, they're always grinning because they know they are close to going ____ (shhh, I can't even say the word, I don't want to jinx anything )
