Does anyone know if the Britax B-safe infant car seat fits into grocery cart seats or not? I've been hearing mixed answers....Thanks!

It fits, but it sits at a weird angle. Not level with baby. In my experience the car seat was elevated forward.

Thank you! Did you feel like it was still safe enough to use that way?

You should never ever put your baby on the top of the shopping cart. If anyone bumped the cart, your baby will go flying. Read your car seat manual! It will tell you to never put it up there. If you want to bring your car seat in the store with you, put it in the basket. Or you can just wear your baby and leave the seat in the car.

It depends on the cart -- they're all difference sizes at different stores. And Lauren is right; even if it seems to fit, it's not a good idea to prop the car seat up on the cart. There is no way it is totally secure. I did it maybe twice at Target -- their carts are plastic and seem to have a little more "give" -- but I did NOT feel right doing it. I have the Britax Chaperone stroller and it had plenty of storage underneath, so until my son was old enough to sit in the cart by himself, I just stuck to the stroller. Yeah, it was kind of a pain, but it meant I bought less (always a plus). If need be, I brought my husband to the store and one of us pushed the cart and the other pushed the stroller. Or, like Lauren said, use a baby carrier like a Baby Bjorn. By the time your baby is old enough to feel really heavy, they'll probably be OK sitting in the cart.

It is never safe to put the infant seat on top of the cart.. But that being said, I have this seat and love it! It feels safer than other seats and that's all that matters.. But it's bulky and only fits inside some carts.. It fits in Walmart carts well

Do any of you find that the B-Safe car seat base seems unstable? I recently installed mine for the first time and I double checked the installation guide multiple times, but the end opposite the end secure by the seat belt, seems to flip up quite far. I do not know how this can be a safe and secure base. OR if it;s the design of my car that's causing it. Also, do y'all put it in the middle backseat or on one side? It is so bulky for my small car, I don't see how my small family of 3 will even fit, much less with stuff! The only way is in the middle which is where my seat has the least depth, making the instability issues even more noticeable. Any similar experiences?

When my daughter was born the hospital offered a car seat class. The instructor told us that the #1 mistake parents make with car seats is finding a way to tighten the "loose" end when that ability to flip up a bit is actually a necessary safety feature. The base needs to have that give.

Are you installing it with Latch? If so, how secure does it feel on the side where you're installing it (and the latch is)? If you have a good install, it should barely be moving side to side when you wiggle it there. I'd recommend taking it to your local firestation and having a certified tech look at it if you can't get it secure enough. My husband has installed ours so many times and it is very wobbly, but when I fix it, it is very secure. Regarding placement, the middle seat is the safest spot. We have ours behind our passenger seat though for three reasons -- 1) we do not have latch in our middle seat -- latch anchors in our car are only for the two side seats 2) so our boys aren't sitting within touching distance and 3) the passenger seat is moved very forward and that way the driver has as much room as he/she wants.
