I have a 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan. I have twins and I am due again in October so I was wondering how should I set up the car seats.

 Does your van have the middle seats wear you sit together (one person on the end, one in the middle) or does it have two seperate seats?

they are 10 months but will be 14 months when the baby gets here. I am going to keep them RF for a bit longer though so I will have 3 RF

That is a hard one. Can you take the back seat that shoud seat 3 and move it to the middle that way you can have all 3 in the same row. If not you might be better to put the twins forward facing when the baby gets here.

I would put the twins outboard in the back and the baby in one of the middle seats.

Definately keep them rf!! Much safer for them. Not familiar with the van though, but I think most vans can do 3 rf.... Just play around with them until you get the right placement.
