Trust me to wait to the last gasp, but we bought our car seat months ago, and this evening i suggested to H that we test to make sure that we know how it fits. problem is that we can't seem to get the blasted thing to go in the car the way t he woman at the shop did when we bought it. i am really annoyed about it too because not only am i now officially overdue, we won't be able to take baby home if we can't get them strapped into the car seat and into the car properly.

Can you buy a base for it? We didn't at first for ours, but after similar a similar experience to yours, I realised I'd never be able to fit it properly by the seat belt so got one later. H could fit it fine though. Don't panic. I can remember getting a neighbour, who had kids, to help us as we were pretty clueless! Once you have got the hang of it, I'm sure it'll become 2nd nature. x

It's a Graco junior car seat. We can get it in the car, but I wouldn't want our new born baby in the seat while it was being fitted! We're going back to the shop we got it from tomorrow to ask them to show us again as we've followed the instructions but still can't seem to get it right. There is a base you can get, but the reviews aren't that great for it.

My advice is to get the base! Mine is a right faff to belt in evennow it drives me mad. Iwas nearly in tears coming out of hospital trying to fit it. Can you try the base at the shop and then decide?

I would second getting a base, I wouldn't be without ours, we have one in each car, makes life soo much easier!

As it transpired, the seat didn't fit in our car properly. I have NO idea how the girl managed to make it look like it would! Went back to the shop this morning and the lovely ladies there were very apologetic that we'd been sold a seat that didn't really fit. We got the base for free from them because they saw it as their error! So i'm now much happier, and we will be able to take baby home no bother when they finally decides to make an appearance!
