I look at it this way, would you rather have your little one safe and secure, knowing that the car seat he/she is in is strapped down properly, or do you leave some slack in the straps to save the leather in your SS? For me it is a no-brainer, I put my full weight on the car seat and tighten the straps as tight as I can get it.

There is hope though on the horizon, though - once your baby boy/girl is old enough and heavy enough, you can put them in a booster seat and just buckle them in with the regular seat belt.
Towel method here too. And I too put my knee in the seat with my entire weight and shorten the clips until I think my fingers are going to break trying to get the da** things clipped in. Luckily I'm past all that now. Good luck

I have question for everyone that has put there own car seat in there TB or Envoy. Where in the back seat did you place it? Middle or next to the one of the doors? I had my local fire department do both of mine and they place in the middle. Do you know how hard it is to get to them in the middle? I will take some pics tomorrow and congrats PANGGOY.

Depend on the car seat you have. It should have a base that the seat that child is in would attach to. I just had my first about ..... oh gosh she is 15months now. Anyways, I just bought another base for each car then you use the same seat for both cars. Saves time and hassle. I tell the TB feels like it has alot of room back there, but when it comes to standing on your head in the back seat you tend to think twice.

That's correct. The infant "carriers" have a base that is installed in the car, then all you do is unlatch it and lift it out. Yes, IMO, the middle seat is the safest if you are only transporting one child. I always went with the middle. I know it's hard to reach in there and get them out. Also, with the rear facing infant seats, they take a lot of room and it will fit better in the middle. I don't have any pics, but if someone doesn't get some out here for you, I'll take some of my nephew this weekend and post. My son is now in a booster.

My best advice, make sure they are secure. Tight as you can get them in the seat. We'd almost have to know what kind of seat you have to give you the most accurate advice. Also, make sure the straps are on your baby securely, if I remember right, you should be able to slip two fingers under the straps and make sure they are positioned correctly. Congrats to both!
