  • Usually one on each side.

  • We have one on each side. 1st because our car isn't big enough to put them side-by-side, with one in the middle. 2nd because I don't trust my toddler to be that close to my infant without constant supervision & I can't "supervise" properly while I'm driving.

  • I have three kids. The middle child sits behind the passenger side because he can do part of his carseat by himself. The baby is in the middle because then he is close enough for me to do his seatbelt. Then the oldest is behind the driver seat because when we pick him up from school it is easier for him not to run around the car. We have a minivan with duel rear doors.

  • I have 3 in car seats and a van. They sit on the outside and not the middle seat because it's hard trying to get the middle seat belt in the back fastened. I also don't trust them all close to each other because when they're in the mood it's hard to keep an eye on them while driving.
