It's so hard isn't it. We r due to have our second Bub in a few months and I was just thinking about the seat/capsule placement issue.
My 2 1/2 yr old is currently behind the passenger seat. I was going to put him behind the drivers seat & the capsule behind the passenger seat for easy access as we have a small car.
Now I'm just totally unsure :-(

I prefer the baby behind the passenger seat and the toddler behind the driver. That way the toddler can climb through from the kerb while I strap the baby in. I think you need to factor in the type of driving you do. I do country driving. Most accidents on my road are head on collisions. If I saw a car coming towards me I would pull to the left off the road, if there was an impact it would be on the drivers side. Since I have 2 kids though I refuse to think about what positions are safest as it would mean I'm prioritising ones safety over another.

Our lil man is rf on passenger side in our triton ute only spot it would fit. In our Camry hybrid he's in the middle. This was my choice as I wanted the seat free next to him for roadside nappy changes etc.

Rf on passenger side. I was always told that's where they should go. Ive only ever been involved in accidents where drivers side was hit so I'm more comfortable with bub being passenger side.

I've always had the knowledge that it was the most dangerous spot in the car since I was a little girl, maybe because my aunt was a nurse. No way would I have bub in that spot, middle or behind driver.

I think it depends where you live too. I'm in inner city and no way I would put my baby behind driver seat - it would just defeat the purpose as it would be more dangerous to have baby get in the car from the road.
And my friends you were in a car accident last both got impacted on the driver side.

If your car seat is installed properly and your child is restrained correctly then trust that the seat will do its job. They're designed and tested from every angle.
Wherever the seat fits best and your kids are safest getting out is what you should focus on.
