Unhappy Children on the back of a SL?

Although some SLs do have children seats on the back (as my 1990 300 SL-24V has) I am reluctant in sitting my 3 year-old there.

The abdominal seat belt poses some problems:

(1- Any car, any make) In case of accident it will put all the body "pressure" on the kids abdominal area increasing the probability of serious injury

(2- MB SLs) Given the available space between the front and rear seats, any child using an abdominal seat belt will definitely hit the (hard) front seat with the head

Is there any way of adapting a safer shoulder seat belt on SL rear seats? Where can I order?
