Congrats to you. Yea i hear ya on the car seat ordeal. My son is two now and finally forward facing. The only way i could have him in the jeep was to put his seat in the middle. The front seat would have to be too far forward when he was on the side. When he did transfer to a convertible rear/forward car seat it actually fit better in the jeep because it wasn't as leaned back even when rear facing. Now he is forward facing and we are all LOVING it, that is a huge step. BUT now we have a second coming and now we start all over again. LOL just remember its all temporary and before you know it the car seat headache will be a thing of the past.
