Ive heard alot of conflicting info regarding this.
Dd is currently in the middle but yesterday I pulled a muscle in my tummy while trying to get her out ( im pregnant so everything is stretching - ouch!) and im thinking I may have to move it.
So which spot do u have ur lo ( middle, right side, left side) and which do u believe to be safest and why? And if u have two in the back do u put one seat either side or one in the middle and one on the side?
I was told by the red cross installers who put in the seat that the middle is the safest.

I've also been told the middle is apparently the safest spot because if the car gets clipped on either side. My D D was in the middle until she was in a booster seat.

Ds was in the middle but is now on behind the drivers side as it will be easier dd will go on the other side

Middle is the safest I believe but we couldn't fit the seats in the middle as it restricted moving both front seats forward. Our seats are on the left hand side (kerb side).

Our car is a 4wd so having a rf child in the middle seemed too hard - esp seeing as I had a csec. Our youngest is on the passenger side and eldest on drivers side. If we need to have an adult in the back we move DS1 to the middle.

Ds1 was in the middle until ds2 arrived. Then ds1 went on the drivers side and ds2 on the passenger side. We did it this way as ds1 could either climb over the baby seat to get in/out.

The middle is the safest, but not the most practical. In fact, it's pretty unpractical. The left hand side is the next safest (and still extremely safe and pretty close to the middle really) ... the left hand side is so that you can get out on the kerb. I always had my youngest child on the left hand side and the older child on the right hand side. I have a dreadful back, so the middle was just never going to happen.
