Joseph is in the back in my car but the front in DH's. My car doesn't have rear airbags but DH's has them everywhere. He has the option to turn off the front passenger airbags so that's where we put Joseph's seat and we have those airbags off.
It's a bit weird because his car has the Isofix system for the back seat and yet we can't install the seat there because of the airbags.
I have no airbags at all, its a P reg Peugeot 106. Someone told us to get another car - pah! Only of hey want to pay for it!
I would feel safer with her in the front as my back seats can come out, and as I have had them out a lot for moving things they come out easily - mayb too easily now, so if something was to happen I would worry that they would come out and thus move the baby seat.
The back seat is MUCH safer for the baby... I think your baby's life is wroth more then the trouble of putting the seats back in.
The only time I know of people putting a car seat in the sfront is in a truck, but it still doesnt make it safe. When given the option you should always go for the back seat.
I work in a hospital and a year a half ago we had a family be brought in to the ER who's baby was in a carseat in the front (actually she was 5) and the carseat ended up going through the front window... they didnt have the harness done up properly and she died.
The back is much safer, but if u need to put LO in the front, then u can deactivate the airbags. Usually when u open the passenger side door theres a lil sign with a slot for ur key to turn the passenger side off, its in the hinge of the door. But never put her in the front with air bags. xxxx
