Position in car for rear-facing infant seat

Just curious, as I have read that the center position is the safest, then the passenger outboard, then behind the driver seat. Clearly, we all have different vehicles, and that will vary, and some have multiple children...but where did you install the seat with your first?

Check your car's manual to see what is best for your car.

That said, our DS was in the middle in the infant seat, then the passenger once he went to the convertible

You definitely need to check your car manual because ours specifically said that the middle was not safe for the car seat. She has always been behind the passenger seat.

We have them on both sides. No other choice.
