car seat help!

We just bought a Nautilus for my daughter. When trying to put it in the buckle part of the seat belt ends up being right where her back will go. So it will be digging in her back the whole time. That can't bee safe right? Not to mention it would hurt. What can I do? We have a 91' Lumina. It seems the buckle stalks are too long. :(

Anyone know?

Please find a tech closest to you. Www.safekids.org. They can't better to help you trouble shoot. I'm not comfortable giving you such delicate advice over the computer.

When I bought my new car seat for DD I went to our local firehouse and they installed it for me. Our personnel at the firehouse go through training for this. I was to scared that I wouldn't install it correctly. Maybe they have something like that where you live.

I had this seat- hated it.  The release attachments are too hard for any of us to manipulate.

Many municipalities have a fire station that is certified to install safety seats.  Even if they are not certified, many of them are trained and can help you make sure it is installed correctly.  Check with your local fire station...

you can twist the belt stalk up to 3 times.. that may help

 also be warned not all fire/police stations have CERTIFIED carseat tech, most have a 30min video they watch and say they are "trained"
