Soft Lump Near Spine After Sitting In Car Seat

Last Saturday we drove to Cornwall, a 7 hour journey. The next day I noticed that three year old DS had a small soft swelling next to his spine. It went down completely after a couple of days. For the journey home I padded the seat with a towel and he has no sign of a swelling again. Could it just have been that the car seat back is too hard, especially for long hauls?

yes could be, babies arent meant to be in carseats for more than 3 hours without a break, but im assuming you stopped? or did you travel thought the night?
