You're married.... And he takes his Mums and families wants over yours?? Wow.. Im genuinely sorry you have to deal with that.

Does his family own the car? If not, tough luck.
That doesn't safe at all. With a newborn and post-pregnancy hormones raging, you'll probably feel even less happy when your little one arrives than you do now, so worth trying to resolve now!
My son spewed all over his car seat so I had to disassemble it and wash the cover. That meant I had to re-install it. My husband attempted that but it was moving and I wasn't happy. When I took it to a fitting station (I think racv in Vic has a list - maybe the other auto club bodies in other states have similar?), the guy who fit it put his whole body weight on the seat and reefed it into place. My point is - my husband and I hoped he'd got it right but, bless him, he just hadn't. Once I went to the fitting station, it was so clear how unsafe our "fiitting" effort was. Worth the $30 or so bucks to be sure.
I agree with one of the earlier posts - worth taking your hubby with you (if you can convince him) so you can both hear it "from the horses mouth".
Good luck and have a safe, healthy and happy rest of your pregnancy and birth and beyond!
He would be an ex husband of mine if he carried on like your dh. Pull all the seats out and tell him to sell the car straight up. Not negotiable.
I have found a place an hour away and are taking it to the professional fitter tomorrow. I actually put the seats in the car and I couldn't get the doors to shut. My dad was able to push them enough to shut the door but you had to shove the doors and the seats moved when you did this. The babies seat is only half on the seat. Fingers crossed the fitter says it isn't safe and I will get a written letter or something and put it to DH then. When I put the seats in they were only sitting there bc there was no way I could get my hand in between to belt them up so fingers crossed the fitter guy says the same. Either way I won't be putting the seats in the back I don't think it is safe so we won't be able to go anywhere as a family (which will mean I am stuck at home as I can't take the kids anywhere with out a car).
How did you go. I really hope you push the issue on this one.
