  • My dd is in the middle only because if someone parks close to me on the side I normally put her in I can always go to the other side of the car and put her in.

  • I put him on my side. makes it easier for me to get him. He'll probably be going in the middle soon though because I'm having another baby.

  • In my husbands truck they take up the whole back seat. So one in each of them. In my car I put two in the back row on either side. In the middle row there is one neat the door and the baby that is coming will go in the middle. I would have to have a car with 5 rows for each of them to be in the middle. I tend to put the baby in the middle and work the car seats around that.

  • As infants in the middle. I kept my first in the middle until he outgrew the infant and next stage seats and had to have the booster that fits the door side. Now that I have two they each are on a door side. For the first year and a half my youngest was in the middle in my car. It broke down and I had to share DH's SUV so there was room to keep her in the middle. My car is running again and is way too small to have her bigger seat in the middle.

  • In the middle until my second was born. I now have one on each side.

  • Middle for the youngest (or only kid). If have 2 kids - put the youngest in the middle (if possible) and the older one on the right/passenger side. You are more likely to parallel park with the passenger side towards the curb and that's a safer place to deal with getting a kid in/out.

  • On each a side.
