If your baby slouches to one side in the seat (common with newborns), place rolled-up cloth diapers or rolled hand towels on each side of the shoulders. There are supports specially designed for car seats, but only use them if they came manufactured with your safety seat. Never place any kind of padding or blanket under your baby — this can affect the harness‵s ability to restrain your little one. If your baby‵s head flops forward (also common with newborns), check the angle of the seat. Use a towel or blanket to tilt the seat back slightly (a 30- to 45-degree angle is best).
An infant-only seat should be placed in the back seat, ideally in the middle of the back seat, but most important, in a position where it fits securely. Read the owner´s manual for your vehicle to find out how to use its seat belts with a child safety seat. Use your knee to push down on the seat as you tighten the car´s seatbelt through the belt path. The car seat should not move more than 1 inch (3 centimeters) from side to side or forward and backward at the belt path. If the seat wiggles or moves on the belt path, the belt needs to be tighter.
