3 kid momma's, I need your help with something!

Hello all!

My husband and I currently have two kids (7 and almost 2). We are talking about trying to expand our family very soon. My question is, what kind of vehicle would be a really good option for fitting 3 smaller children in? Right now, I have an Acura TL. I love it, I REALLY don't want to get rid of it but the miles are getting pretty high and it isn't very roomy if we add another car seat. I have my eye on the Ford Edge. Do any other mom's drive this? How do you like it? What are some other options? Oh, yeah, and we need something with a decent price tag lol!  I'd really appreciate some feedback. Thanks!

Once we had number 3, we went to a minivan, a Honda Odyssey. I thought I wouldn't like it, but I love it. We also can fit all three kids in the back of our Hyundai Sonata, but they're a bit older now. So we have two in boosters and one in no car seat.

I love my Dodge Grand Caravan. I was reading on another group that the Edge is very tight on space with three across. It can be done but it might mean buying new car seats all around to accommodate three.

I would personally go with a mini van though.

I have a chevy suburban, it is my 2nd suburban. I had a minivan and wanted something with 4wheel drive. I have 4 boys and did daycare in my home. I could get 5 carseats in it. They are expensive i bought both mine used and have had very little problems with either. Good luck.

I will never , even after kids are grown, drive anything but a minivan. They really are THE most practical vehicle around.

We bought our first van while pregnant with our third baby....but we knew we were going to have more babies (we always planned on having 5 children).
