    We did it this way too. I always get the baby out before the toddler. I find I'm rarely pulling up in the street anyway.

    We did this too to keep the 4 year old off the street.

    I always thought you were supposed to put the youngest behind the passenger seat. Like it was a law. Thanks, now I know its not.

    We put baby behind the passenger because the rear facing seat takes up more space, limiting leg room in front so much that DH wouldn't have been safe driving if baby was behind driver.

    Yeah, definitely bub on the passenger side & older child on the other side. My ds (now 5) climbs into his seat by himself and either does his belt up or waits for me while I put dd in on the kerb side. Then I walk around, do up ds's belt and jump in the drivers seat and off we go. Then we do the same in reverse and ds gets out with me & then goes and stands beside the car & waits for me. If I'm getting dd (5 months) out of the car & into the pram it's a lot easier to have the pram on the kerb side just next to the door so I can put bags on it, then her, then arrange a blankie over her, etc without worrying about oncoming traffic.

    If your car is big enough/your able to fit, you could get older child to climb into their seat, you get in yours, spin round & do them up from from the front seat.

    I get mine to climb in the car, close the door behind them & do them up from the drivers seat. No chance of them running on me.

    this is why we put capsule behind the passengers seat and DD1 behind drivers, then moved DD1 to middle once she could be trusted not to touch the baby all the time

    I left my daughter behind the passenger for a couple of reasons.

    First, I didn't want her to feel like her world was turning upside down and by moving her seat. I didn't want her to feel like she was being replaced.

    Also, she was only 2, so found it easier to place the capsule on the ground next to the car and put her in her seat and avoid a toddler near the road.

    I havent even thought of this yet. I know we will have the babys seat in the middle, then our older sons seat probably behind the passenger so we can get him in on kerbside but then behind drivers seat would be easier to pass him things and look at him. Also we live in a country town so traffic isnt busy anyway.

    I havent read all the other threads to this but have wondered the same thing. We're expecting #2 in 10 weeks and am wondering who should be on which side. My theory is that the toddler will stay on the passenger side and the baby on my side. Reason being is because im constantly reaching back to tend to her. Wheras when she was a baby, i dont ever recall doing that.
