baking soda, KH?

I know to raise your KH you can add baking soda. So if you raise your KH and your adding CO2 then that would make a higher saturation of CO2 in the water, correct?

Only if the pH remains the same. For example, if the KH is 4 degrees, and your pH is 6.5 according to Chuck's Calculator the CO2 level is 38 ppm. If the pH stays the same, but you raise the KH to 5, your CO2 would then be 47, but to do this you would probably need to increase the amount of CO2.

So the baking soda will alter the pH also?

Correct. It will raise the pH.
