    Thanks for all the suggestions. Of course my child's safety comes first and I'll do whatever it take to make sure he's safe. I was just looking for suggestions for a new dad.
    I'm thinking of swinging by the local fire department. From what I'm told they take a special course on how to install and secure a car seat properly and can show me how.

    The one I have in the rear has an adjustable base to angle it/make it level with a leveling bubble.
    By law I'm suppose to put in in the center of the rear seat? I haven't even heard of this. I'm going to have to look into that. I'm learning all kinds of new stuff, Like tummy time is a real thing you're suppose to do with your kid. LOL

    Yea I was going to look into this. I wasn't sure if they were even worth it.

    We decided on a stroller car seat travel system for know. Once He gets older we'll look into getting a different car seat.
    This is the system we bought.

    Sounds like a KISS (Keep it simple, stupid) suggestion. This sounds like the old school way of doing it. But hey it sounds like it'll work.

    I think my sons were in the stroller system type seats for about 8 months, they out grow that seat quick unless they are little peanuts, my kids are tanks, my 3 yr old is as big as his 5 yr old cousins. My wife paid way too much for the fanciest seat contraptions lol, pick your battles I guess. If we didn’t use it for both kids I wouldn’t have said it was worth it. As soon as they could sit upright I switched to the 20$ stroller though, I hate big bulky strollers, I can’t stand when I’m trying to leave the house and next thing you know it like packing for a weekend trip with 5 trips to load the trunk! I travel light, diaper in my back pocket and the cheapo stroller if I even took one, and away we go.

    Yep. It’s the other stuff the kids do that’ll ruin your seats, like spitting up, or peeing all the way through the car seat. I stopped worrying about the car seat itself.

    Well.... I have 2 kids.... 1 girl 1 boy with 1 boy due any day now. My rear seats look flawless. I have ALWAYS had a sheet down under them and over bottom part of seat due to their feet and seats. Leather and suede still look like no one has set on them

    Maybe a cover designed for pets they buckle around the headrests to keep them up and protect the entire seat

    Try putting a knee in middle of the car seat base and with your weight pushing down then cinch up the straps. Works like a charm, talk about tight!! Baby Audrey is ready for the Indy 500 now LOL

    That's exactly what I do every time I put the seats back in, both knees actually and shoulders wedged against the ceiling. With no pad I can snug that sucker down until it doesn't even budge...with a pad the bottom wiggles around.

    Please take it to your local fire department for inspection. They will help you make sure it's installed right.

    I did try a few protectors from but but baby.

    Congrats on the new baby, been using a car seat (without protection) for two plus years with the grand baby, and no issues at all. But its not a fixture in my car alone, it goes between the 300 and the Nitro.

    This is what I would do. Ebay or junkyard a nice seat bottom out of a non-SRT, so it is flatter than what you have. Put a cover over it if you are concerned about color matching. Use this while you need the car seat in there, and put the sculpted seat bottom away in storage until you no longer need the car seat.
