Where in Canada are you?
At my recent Cdn tech course, we were told that while hospitals may TELL you this, they have no legal bearing to actually prevent you from leaving, or keeping you from your baby. Humour them if you want to, but you certainly don't have to.
And if you're using a convertible and they want to check it (and you want to let them), they may accompany you down to the car. It makes absolutely no sense to pull a convertible out and then reinstall it.
Call ahead to know what to expect -- and realize that most hospital staff are not techs and may not (read: won't) know what they're talking about or be up to date on current regs or best practices. Good luck.
That cracks me up, because at OUR hospital, it's the opposite-- you aren't allowed to carry them out in the seat. It HAS to be in the MOTHER'S arms. Even with the twins-- they made ME carry both of them, which was so wrong because I was only five days past a c-section, and it was so hard for me to manage both of them at the same time. The babies would have been WAY safer with one of them in a seat, or in DH's arms.
