    Default Position of Kids Carseats

    Hi all,

    Currently, I have DD1s carseat forward facing (on the driver's side) and DD2s carseat rear facing (on passenger side). I am wanting to put them side by side, and get DD1 away from the driver's side; and if I did this now, I would need to put DD1 in the middle forward facing and DD2 would remain where she is rear facing.

    Once both girls are forward facing, I'm just wondering what is easier, to have the older or younger one in the middle? I am thinking putting DD1 in the middle, that way she will be able to see the 'world' and leave DD2 where she is... or does it work better to have the 'baby' in the middle?

    TIA...

    I have my eldest (3 1/2yo) in the middle so he can climb in and put the straps on ready to be buckled up, DD is rear facing on the passenger and DS2 forward facing behind drivers seat.

    Well i haven't found the perfect position lol my girls seats get moved around at least every month.

    At the moment I have dd2 in the middle and dd1 on the passenger side (both FF). but they do fight sometimes about she's touching my seat, she's putting her foot on me etc.

    I had the same problem though i don't really like either of them sitting on the drivers side but previously i had DD1 on the drivers side and dd2 on the passengers side and my reasoning was i had to open Dd2's door while she was younger so i would unlick dd1's seat belt and she would climb across and get out the passengers side so we didn't ever have to get out on the road.
