Did any of you ladies do this when you're kids where younger.
When dd was smaller I always sat in the back seat with her.
We had to drive an hour just to go grocery shopping and she always got very fussy in the car.
She also had a problem with acid reflux and vomiting and was always puking and getting chocked up on it. (Very scary.)
I couldn't reach her well from the front seat when she was in her rear facing bucket type car seat.
When she started forward facing I started sitting in the front again, because the acid reflux had gotten much better, she wasn't choking on it anymore, and I could easily reach her from my seat without having to climb half way back into the back seat.
(We only have one vehicle. Dh always drives. If we need to get anywhere during the day while he's at work we walk. So I've never had to drive alone with her and try to reach her.)
Did any one else sit in the back with their kiddos when they were real little?
