Even though travel systems are great for transporting babies, they really aren't ideal when trying to get your baby to nap. A 2015 Journal of Pediatrics study found 47 deaths in children under 2 were because of car seats used outside of a car, over the period of 4 years.
It's so hard to get that precious nap in, it's quite tempting to let babies continue to sleep in car seats. They're not really designed for safe sleep because they don't lie flat, meaning they can slump forward and suffocate from their heads blocking their airway.
The safest places to sleep while out on a stroll are in a bassinet, where babies lie completely flat. If you'd still like take a walk or be mobile while your baby is asleep, getting a great bassinet and stroller combination is the key to getting out of the house.
