When your LO falls asleep for a nap in the car, do you let them sleep in the car? Or do try to transfer them or just wake them up if it's not nap time?
LO2 fell asleep in the car today and he has been such a peach today, so I just let him sleep. I would have preferred him taking a real nap in bed, but I was more afraid of what would happen if I woke him up lol.

Totally depends. With the baby, I can usually pick up the whole car seat and put her in her room to finish the nap there. Or sometimes I just let her stay in the car (if I really want to make sure she has a long enough nap I won't move her). Now that we have a house and garage I'll leave her in there to run in and go to the bathroom or grab a snack.
Toddler, no way can I move her. So if it's near nap time and she falls asleep, I leave her.

Ughhhhh I hate it when DD naps in the car. She will nap for five minutes on the way back from the grocery store and then refuse to finish up her nap at home- she wakes up as soon as I turn the car off usually and if not she will definitely wake up while I carry her upstairs. The onky way she gets a good nap in the car is when we are on a road trip or if I drive around in circles until she is rested.
