  • We have a minivan (a Plymouth Grand Voyager if you're curious). My older daughter's in a booster, but my younger daughter's in a regular carseat. When the third comes in November, we'll be putting Jill all the way in the back and keeping Beth and the new baby in the front.

  • I have a regular sized car (Chrysler 300) and I have 3 youngins. My two older boys are in boosters and my daughter sits between them in a regular forward facing carseat. The backseat of my car now is bigger than the backseat of the Jeep Grand Cherokee I used to have.

  • We can fit three large Britax car seats across the back seat of my mom's Buick LaCrosse. They are snug together, but they fit.

  • I drive the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT--black. My 22 month old's Britax seat is behind me in a captain's chair and the other two have booster seats that they use in the way back and in the other captain's chair.

  • I have a Honda Pilot and LOVE it! I only have two kids righ now, but I always have someone else's kid with me. You can fit 4 or five car seats in there if you wanted to. It seats 8, but the back seats are kind of narrow.

  • I don't think a sendan can fit three carseats, but let's try. I think 2 boosters seats and infant carseat in between may do!

  • SUV! Two in the middle row and two in the back... (when my nephews come to visit)
    we figured out that a minivan wont fit three in a row, and neither will an SUV.. its just too tight of a squeeze.. so a third row was the only option. The only downside is if we have more than two adults they have to sit inbetween the carseats and they better hope they have a small butt...
