We will be playing tetris this weekend to get three carseats in the back of our car. Ugh, pray it works because I don't think we can swing getting a bigger car for a few months!
This is us. Jaleigh is still in a high back Graco booster, Kiefer is in the Graco MyRide, and the new baby will be in the Graco SnugRide. Since I already know they will all fit I may just take them all down to the fire station and have them do it...otherwise, it's DF's problem to deal with. I can barely tie my shoes, let alone install 3 freakin carseats.
Your carseat base must be parallel with the ground in order for the seat to be pitched to the desired 45 degree angle (the angle at which your baby's head will rest and not have the head/chin rest on their chest and potentially cut off their air way). What the towel/noodle/wedge does is help lift the base. Many back seats in cars are not flat because having them angled helps make more leg room in the back. But this means the car seat base will not sit flat, hence the prop.
@MommaMandaPanda89: I hope not in the front of your truck!
Thanks for explaining. I will have to check this out soon.
