I have a trailblazer and am trying to figure out the best/safest way for my kids to be in there. My daughter is 4 and has a booster. Son is 2 yrs old and will have the infant seat. Now, if daughter could buckle self no problem, I'd just say have her in the back. But, she can't. Three across isn't looking right- tried it today and all I can think is....they are going to be poking, hitting and driving each other crazy because there is no space and all barely fit. But, I don't have those extra locks/carseat bar things in the very back row. Is it safe to have the 2 year old back there but his car seat just attached by the seatbelt? [it's the 5 point one still for him].

Was thinking it'd be easy to flip seat down and her booster just moves out to get son in very back and then booster and infant in front row. but, worried he won't be safe back there. Any suggestions GREATLY appreciated!

She actually reached through from the front. I agree though, go to the firestation.

I can't see how infant seat would be safe in the back row. No LATCH stuff back there. ?? I think I'll see if the owner's manual has tips or call police station to find out where to go for help.

I had a friend who had this problem and even though it was a pain, she went through the trunk. Or the hatch to get the infant seat out.

I was just asking a friend today if there was a local place to go. Thanks, will call tomorrow and find out. Maybe I can take seats all up there and have them help. Thank you!

Local firestations and police will help ... there are workshops too (free) that will assist you with this. Not being there, I can't say and I am no kind of seat belt expert. I contacted the experts when my daughter used one.
