So I have 3 kids all in carseats; infant carseat, highback booster, and booster seat. I have a 2 door dodge stratus. The back seat doesn't fit all 3. It can barely fit my skiny 6 year old if two carseats where on each side of her. It is that small.
I take my niece to her visits with her mom on wednesdays. I take her back home on sundays. So my grams has been letting me use her van when I have all 3 of them from sundays to wednesdays. But she is complaining that I don't fill up her tank. I'm not going to spend money that I don't have on a gas tank I won't be using. She won't let me use van.
So I'm torn on what to do with my daughter since she is the oldest... putting her in the front seat of my car with her booster or not. I know that she should be far from air bag if it came to the point of putting a child in front seat. But I really don't want her there for her safety. And I don't want to get pulled over. I don't know what to do. I'm the only one who can do transportation for my niece since I'm her foster mom.
Update: I was sort of able to fit the carseats. I had to put ds's and nieces carseat on the raised edges. My niece's highback booster is fine.. its tightly secured plus with latch. My dd's booster is in the middle and we both have trouble buckling her up because my ds's carseat is on the other side of her and well basically they are so tightly close together its really hard to buckle her in. I have gotten a couple scrapes. And my ds's carseat is loose. No matter how much I tighten the seatbelt. Its also latched on but its still loose.
