I have a serious question here. My son is 13 months 25lbs & 31in. We have a Graco Headwise 70 & it goes to 40 rear facing but there is a small problem. We can't get the car seat in our car RF without interfering with how we are able to drive. My husbands seat has to be pushed back or he can't drive, he simply won't fit so driver side & middle are out. On the passenger side the seat has to be so far up that neither of us can see when someone is sitting there. I know legally he can FF due to KS state laws & the car seats limits. I don't want any crap about being a bad parent for possibly having to forward face my son & I don't want fighting in the comments, what I want is help. We can't afford the mini van right now, we can't safely drive as we are right now, and we truly don't know what to do.
I don't want to FF him but we don't have the funds for a new car seat or a new car. Do we just FF & pray nothing happens or do we RF & pray nothing happens?
And before anyone says it I KNOW REAR FACING IS SAFER!!! I know he should be that way until 2.
