Are we talking about an infant???  Please don't leave your infant in the car.  I've seen a lady at my son's preschool leave her 2 year old twins in the car when she runs the older one into school.  She leaves her car running (but locked) so I guess she thinks it's ok.  But there have been about 3 break ins to steal purses this school year, so I would NEVER risk leaving my little one in the car like that.  Especially if I couldn't see the child the entire time I was outside of the car.  You just don't risk it!!!

I would take him in.Your really not left w/ant other options.If you did you risk someone calling the police on you.I remember my parents always leaving us in the car.Back then it was ok.Its a tough call but to be safe I always bring them in w/me.
