DH's car, a 2 door Civic, sucks with the rear-facing convertible carseat. He has to actually climb in the back seat, with C in his arms, to buckle C in. The infant seat, he could buckle up beforehand (obviously) and just drop it in the base. He is actually considering buying a new car because it's so difficult.
There are a lot of factors at play when it comes to purchasing a new car, but one is that in two months we can put the seat forward facing and that would make getting him in and out tremendously easier. BUT, I know that, generally, you're supposed to do RFing as long as you can. So, what did you guys actually do? Also, if you have any good literature links about rear facing car seat safety, please enlighten me! Thanks!
