ugh- not thinking about car!!!
we were so done!!!
we need to upgrade to something that seats 8... we did have 3 kids and our dog in our honda accord for a long season.... i hated upgrading to a mini van, but it has served us well and i'm sad to have to think of another!!!
i love my Maya wrap for nursing and transport and keeping newborn on the boob. i have a homemade woven wrap, a maya wrap, and a maya wrap remade in summer gauze by my mom when i wore out the first fabric on my first 3 kids. she also made me a mai tai which is AWESOME for this little dude. i have different favs w/ each kid and their own traveling style. my newborns love maya (and they're invisible and i can nurse anywhere and no one knows) when they're older, i like the woven wrap for back carry and long walks, and for convenience (grocery store/library/getting baby tied on in parking lot while not losing the 2 year old) the mai tai is a life-saver!!!
otherwise, this baby will be a lot like the others in that i'll fudge it until i figure it out.... i pretty much just swaddle and do skin to skin for a couple of months (my 4th trimester), co-sleep (if they'll have it), carry all the time (i do have a bouncy chair for when they want to hang w/ sibs), and so other than diapers don't get a whole lot for the newborn phase!!! boobs are amazing.
I am considering getting a new pump to pump for another mama- but hopefully i'll be tandem nursing... if not, then i'll be pumping enough for another baby. and probably find another mama to donate to hopefully on a regular basis.
