Morning ladies! I have an issue... currenly I am unemployed and expecting a little one in November - not the best of timeing, but we do love her already. Anyways, we were hoping to get a new bigger vehical before the baby came, but that isn't going to happen. So, here's the deal - I currenly have 4 in carseats/booster seats (7 yrs, 6 yrs, 4 yrs & 1 yr) and we are adding another one. None of the kids are able to get out of the seats because of age/wieght/hieght and current laws, so we have to find a booster seat we can use that will let us fit 3 in the back row of my Chevy Voyager (mini van). Do any of you know of a booster seat that can work?? The other issue is cost, since we have to get 3 of them - they have to be some what inexpensive, after all I'm jobless right now. I did see a backless booster at Walmart.com for @ $14 with good reviews, but I don't know if I can fit 3 in my back row... have any of you had any luck with this issue, these seat or even another one that will work?

Thanks ladies for your help!!!

Hi. I used to have a daycare and fit 3 full carseats in the back of a 2 door toyota tercel. Tight fit, but they fit. I'd suggest you keep the younger ones in the full carseats. If you switch to boosters, then they will have to manuever between the boosters to buckle up and it gets really tight. If one moves, they'll pinch the others hand. It's much easier and safer to have them in a 5 point harness anyway. You'll be able to move them faster and easier. Good luck.
