I have a toyota corolla, and as it is now I have DS in a convertible seat on the passenger side, rear-facing. The only way to fit it is to pull the front seat all the way up, and DH and I are relatively tall/long-legged, so whoever sits up there is totally crushed (truth be told, DH can't even fit, so it's always me being crushed, unless I'm driving).
We had to do the same thing with our infant car seat before we switched to convertible, so I'm wondering what will happen when baby #2 arrives. We still have our car seat and had planned to use it, but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to drive if I need to be any closer to the wheel.
What has worked for you? I'm trying to avoid switching DS to front-facing for as long as possible, even though he's very tall and big for his age.
