Where to put infant seat?

I was going to put it in the middle of the back seat, but the middle has a two part seatbelt. Aren't I not supposed to use one of those? (It is the style where there is just a lap belt, and then the diagonal chest part comes from the trunk area and plugs into the lap belt.)

Thanks for any advice! This is our first infant car seat, and I am a bit overwhelmed by it!

Oh, and it is a Graco Snugride 35, and the car is a Hyundai Santa Fe.

Re: Where to put infant seat?

We ended up putting ours behind the drivers seat, where we could use the LATCH. Our car has the belt come from the back of the SUV and has a weird buckle, one part that comes across the lap and the other that goes across the chest. I felt more comfortable using the latch, and I didn't do a lot of research into that seatbelt to know if it'd be safe enough to put the infant seat there.

That sounds like ours. My car doesn't have latch, which I found surprising bc our older Audi does.

A Hyundai Santa Fe that is model year 2002 or newer does have LATCH. Do you have an owner's manual? It should have the details.

This is funny, because my inlaws' Santa Fe was a MY 2003, made in Sept 2002, and didn't have LATCH. Apparently they snuck in right under the deadline to incorporate LATCH.

Sneaky! I stand corrected!
