E70 Baby Car Seat Mirror Help

To all of the Moms and Dads out there in Xoutpostland - I have a 3 month old and I have yet to find a car seat mirror that will work in the center of the rear seat. The center headrest doesn't lift up or allow anything to go underneath of it (but 90% of the mirrors out there require a strap of some sort to go under the headrest for extra security), and the one I did find that doesn't have this strap doesn't sit high enough on the headrest for me to see my baby.

Has anyone found a car seat mirror that works on the center headrest?

Why not use the passenger side rear seat? A regular strap baby mirror works there and if you put a bag of wipes behind, it will angle it for a perfect view. And you will never be without the forgotten wipes. It also makes the inevitable “hold the bottle while driving” situation doable.

The car seat we have doesn't fit behind either the drivers seat or passengers seat. It only fits in the center.

Most child seats you have to slide the front passenger seat up a little for.

Yup, and that's not an option for us.

You could always try something like this if you are willing to spend a bit.
