i was wondering ... me and my bf are nvr rly in the car togheter , cept like 1 day a week (he works alot) ... i was thinking puttin the car seat (w/ base) in the middle , so even if its just one of us we can still hand her sumthin or check on her (im also getting that mirror u put on the back seat) ... do u think thats a good idea , or should i just put it on one side of the car ... (if i put it on one side , itll go on mine , buuut if hes drivin and she needs sumthin id have to like get up on the seat to give it to her) ....

And after reading all that, you can't change me, you can try, but I won't budge .... So after that, My name's Tara, if you would like to chat sometime ;)

the middle is the best place in the car for a baby.  my son rides in the middle now but when this baby comes they both will have to ride by a door.  but for a singleton baby middle is the best.  and we all know you can't put 2 babies in the middle! LOL

Well there is only one place for her to go in our trcuk.. theres only three seats.. one for daddy, one for mommy, and one for her right in the middle.. lol...

but in a CAR, or other vehecile... the safest place for a baby is right in the middle seat.. in case of an accident.. there is more room on either side!

The middle is supposed to be the best place.  However we have a Navigator and there are 2 captain chairs in our 2nd row with a console in the middle.  When the baby comes my boys are going to both move to the 3rd row, and the baby will probably go on the passenger side 2nd row since my DH has to have the driver's seat moved so far back to drive.

I feel that baby is safer in the middle. I have my little girl there so that whether you are driving or passenger they are close and also if, god forbid, you are ever in an accident the baby will be away from both doors.

I just got a van. DS is in captian chair behind driver now, but will probably move to other side after baby is born because of automatic sliding door. I haven't really decided on what side each will go on. I do have side impact air bags and both chairs are latch equiped.
