How long can baby sit in car seat?

It's generally recommended that babies spend no more than 2 hours at a time in a car seat. This is because prolonged periods of time in a car seat can put pressure on a baby's developing spine, which can be particularly problematic for newborns and young infants whose neck muscles are not yet fully developed. Additionally, sitting in the same position for an extended period of time can lead to discomfort, and can increase the risk of developing a condition known as positional plagiocephaly, or "flat head syndrome." Therefore, it's important to take regular breaks during long car trips to allow your baby to stretch, move around, and change positions.
