Car seat placement

I have a 4 years old, FF and will soon have an infant RR. I was wondering what is the best placement for the car seats? I drive a car that has the latch system on the sides, but not in the middle. Yet if we use the sides we won't be able to access the 3rd easily.

I would personally put the 4-year-old on one side for easy buckling and the infant in the middle since you just need to clip the seat into the base. Or just evaluate how often you would use the middle and see if it is worth the extra effort to you.

my husband is a firefighter and they have firemen specially trained by the state to help with that. if you go to your local fire dept or maybe the police dept may have people trained in that also. i would suggest going to your local fir dept and asking or call them and see when you can stop in and they will check to see where the best placement for the seats are and that they are placed in the car correctly. i had taken mine into my hubbys dept several times to have them check that the seat was in right. i hope i helped.
