Looking for a pushchair? Find out which stroller is our Mumsnet Best of 2017!
I've just fitted my car seat for the first time (phew!) and I just wondered is it better to have it behind the drivers seat or the passenger seat? I seem to remember someone saying to me one was safer than the other, but I can't remember which.
not sure one is safer than other? well not heard as much as i had a baby behind each seat (twins) so I hope one wasn;t safer than other!
Anyway, if you only have the one and you are the driver, i would suggest that behind passenger is better as at least you can kinda see them if needs be.
thanks for that... I figured with one child seat behind the passenger seat was best as I can kind of reach round and see the baby (well I will do when I'm no longer hugely pregnant )
I think in the middle at the back is best if you have a 3 point seat belt there (not just a lap belt), then any side impacts are less likely to hit baby.
