I do plan on asking about this when I get to the hospital but I hated feeling that rushed when I am trying to secure my child. I drive 1 hour to deliver at this hospital so it isn't like I am going a few blocks (not that is right either!).

So basically what I am hearing is if on the off chance they call the police, which isn't going to be far because we have national treasures a few blocks away, then I could tell them that I was making sure my child was secure and I would be in the right?
It's illegal to drive away with an unsecured child. So yes, you'd be in the right. A child must be secured properly in an appropriate child seat for their age. Everyone else will just have to put on their patient faces while you make sure your most precious cargo is well secured.
