im sure some of the mammies can give their experience but id imagine its all up to you and baby and how you are both doing. Id also guess that in the spring/summer its easier to get out and about sooner as its not as cold and wet (well supposed to be!)

If your baby is anything like mine, they will just fall straight to sleep when in a car anyway so cant imagine you having any problems no matter how young they are. only thing would be that they recommend babies arnt in car seats for longer than 2hrs at a time for their spine, so maybe just stop off a couple of times to give baby a break, bottle and a stretch
