Can I hold my baby in the back seat?

Can I hold my baby in the back seat?

Road safety experts recommend that children use booster seats until at least 10 years of age provided they still fit in it. While it is legal to do so, the National Child Restraint Guidelines recommends that children under 12 years of age are safest in the rear seat unless they are travelling in a single row vehicle.

Can you put a baby seat in the middle?

The middle position is technically the safest position, but not always practical. The outboard positions are still extremely safe. The passenger side is favourable, rather than the drivers side.

Can you put 2 car seats next to each other?

Safest place for 2 car seats The safest place to install two car seats depends on if you’re installing the car seats in the rear-facing or forward-facing positions. If both of the car seats are rear-facing/forward-facing, place the younger child in the middle and the older child behind the passenger seat.

Can 3 booster seats fit in a car?

Fitting 3 across can be difficult in many cars and in some actually impossible to do it safely. With the RideSafer, you can easily, comfortably and SAFELY fit up to three children in one row in your vehicle — even if one or two are in traditional car seats!

Is it better to put car seat behind driver or passenger?

Place the car seat in the backseat. The safest spot for your baby is always in the backseat — preferably in the middle spot, away from passenger-side air bags. If your car doesn’t fit a car seat securely there, place the seat on either side of the backseat (or, if you drive an SUV, in the second row).

Which side is better for car seat?

The safest place for your child’s car seat is in the back seat, away from active air bags. If the car seat is placed in the front seat and the air bag inflates, it could hit the back of a rear-facing car seat — right where the child’s head is — and cause a serious or fatal injury.
