    As in two car seats? Ours goes baby behind passenger (so they are next to the kerb and easy to take out) and 3.5yo behind driver.

    I don't think out seats would go nicely next to each other if I put the 3.5yo in middle - her booster sticks out a bit.

    Huh? Passenger is kerbside in both, unless you drive a UK car into Europe.

    ETA: to answer the question, baby closest to the kerb and behind passenger, older child behind driver and gap for the dog in the middle.

    Lol baby brain moment kerb is driver side where we park each night ( private road- so we are on wrong side to park) so I was purely thinking of getting in and out each day at home, not when we are out and about

    We have DS toddler behind driver in 5point harness seat, DD2 in middle in booster seat and DD1 on the passenger side - we set up this way for ease of using the school pick up & drop off zone each day

    We have oldest behind driver in a booster, 5 point harness in middle and capsule behind passenger. We can't fit seats in comfortably any other way. Ideally I would have 5 point harness behind driver as then I don't have to climb into the car to do the belt up.

    We're planning to put DD's convertible booster behind the driver, and the rear facing baby seat behind the passenger, because my car is small & if DH were driving, he wouldn't have enough room to put his seat back far enough with a RF car seat behind him.

    Dd is 3, passenger side
    Ds is in a convertible rf behind the driver.

    I don't remember the last time I parallel parked so it doesn't affect me putting them in/out on the kerbside
