Baby and a 2 door?


CleanGSR

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering for those of you that have a child/baby and a 2 door car, is it a pain getting your kid in and out of a 2 door? We'll be taking my wife's car most places we go, but would still like to use my car a lot with the kid. I plan on upgrading to a 4 door Subie down the road, but for the next couple of years, I'm stuck with the teg, so post up your experiences please.

It's not as convenient as with a 4-door, but I never thought it was as terrible as some people tend to think. Of course, I wasn't transporting a baby/small child every day or even on a regular basis, so maybe it's different when you have to do it regularly.

It won't be a whole lot, but on trips, we'll be taking my car (as unpractical as it sounds) Her car has no cruise and the most uncomfortable seats in trips more than an hour. Also, I'll have to pick up the baby every now and then from her parents house.

No, it's not easy for me to get into the backseat by anymeans....but I'll be leaving the base of the baby seat in the car, so I won't have to completley climb back there. Once they "graduate to a front facing seat, The entire car seat will stay in the car so it should be even easier at that point.....of course I don't know any of this for sure....but I'm just wondering if it's going to make me never want to take my car anywhere when the baby's along.

You *should* be alright, then, and by about 2 or so, he/she should be able to get in and into the seat on his/her own, so then all you'd have to do is buckle. Just push the passenger seat all of the way up, you'll probably need one leg in and that's about it, so start practicing if you're worried, lol.

yeah, nate, unfortunately it is a pain riding a baby in a 2 door. especially in an integra youre gonna have to scoot the pass seat forward just so the seat can fit because the baby has to face toward the back. but later on you can get the seat i got and ride fine. plus its always better to have someone ride in the back with baby just in case he/she starts to cry. i have a mitsubishi galant that i use when i take out my baby, i never mentioned that car cause its not a honda :) .

its fine hung , ive been doing it for 10 months now , no problems man , always use the passenger side , cause when you crack the seat , it goes forward as well as leans forward. its easy man. throw him in the seat , step one foot in the back floor , strap him in , done. i told my woman , dont even bug me about my car , you go before the civic , haha , no i didnt say that , i like sex too much , hehe.

Sex?? What is that? I've forgotten what it is ever since she got pregnant. My passenger side seat doesn't slide forward when I access the backseat, but I really don't see it being all that difficult. When my folks used to own this car, we rode in the back sometimes and it wasn't horribly difficult to get back there. My other concern is if the baby seat will slide around on the leather, but I'll deal with that when the time comes.

haha, well, she'll probably be sex-crazed at some point during her pregnancy lol, so good luck with that haha.

 

as for the leather, don't worry about it. as long as you have a car seat that fits, then you won't have a problem. we never had a problem with either of my niece's seats in my mom's gsr.

havin a 2 door isnt bad at all...... when i first had my daughter i had eclipse...if you have the carseat with the base that stays in the car you can just snap the baby in and go...... i never really had a problem carting her around at all.....its a little different when they move up to the front facing one though.... you just have to put one leg in and buckel them in like civicracinggirl said.....not difficult......as for the whole leather thing just put a thin towel under the carseat , make sure you get it really tight....i usually kneel in my daughters to get it tight. the towel also helps not put creases.....

Don't feel bad you're missing out on it.

 

My significant other.. she tried to pull some crap in the old hatchback.. You'd think it's roomier than it was. Ugh.
