Car seat problem

I have a 5 yr old a 2 yr old and here in 9 weeks i will be having our last one.Is there a triplet car seat out there that will fit all 3kids into it? i know the baby needs to be rear facing but the hubby and i just bought a wagon (b4 knowing we were prego) and we dont think 3car seats will fit in it. really dont have the $$$ to go out and buy another car.

  • i don't get it? a triple carseat? not sure what you mean by that...the 5yr old is in a booster, and 2yr old is in a 5 point harness forward facing right? so all you'd need is an infant seat...yeah ok i'm confused lol

  • yeah i mean the 3 car seats we have will not fit into our car so i was kind of hoping they made thinner or a group together car seats that will fit in our car and if so where?

  • When I was looking at car seats for my son, I had read that the Sunshine Kids Radian car seats will fit 3 across one row. It might not be your solution, but it might be a place to start. Yes, they are expensive, but it will be less than the price of another car.

  • I know that the Radian seats are known for fitting 3 across. Post in the carseat group, the type of car you have and what seats you'd like to use and your budget, they'll have great recommendations.

  • you could also ask a policeman or fireman, they often have car seat checks and may know of some brands that work better for 3 across.

  • SOME cops and firefighters know. Unfortunately, there are some who are not certified, and give poor and unsafe advice. Make sure whomever you check with is a CPST.
