Is anyone going to have 3 under 3?

Lol, me. I am a little petrified. My daughter just turned 2 on 7/31 and my other daughter will be 1 on 8/18. I don't even know where to begin with strollers and car seats, etc...

This will be my 4th child, but two are from a previous marriage and are 8 and 10.  So I'll have two under 2, lol.  The only vehicle we own that will hold all 6 of us is the truck.  I can put 3 in front and 3 in back.  So the back seat will contain a convertible seat for ds and an infant carrier for the baby.  Dd#2 will be out of a booster next week (at least in that vehicle) so that will help.  The most streamlined base I've found on infant carrier's was the Chicco Key Fit 30.  One of the reasons I went with it this time around.  The car seat board will be able to help you solve that dilemma.  As for strollers, it depends on how often and what type of use it will see.  You could always get a tandem for the older two and put baby in a sling while he/she is little.  Hugs.  As overwhelming as it sounds right now, I can guarantee you'll find solutions for it all.  :smileyhappy:

My oldest will turn 3 a few month after this baby is born and my youngest son's first birthday would have been a few months before (he died the day he was born) so tecnically I should be in the 3 under 3 category but only 2 of them will be at home with me

I do! :smileywink:  We went from 1 to 4!  I had to sell my Jeep Wrangler... :smileysad:  I loved that car.  My DD loved that car. I'm now in complete denial of being a mini-van owner.  With 3 carseats and a booster..  there's no choice. I have a triple stroller, a double stroller and a single stroller.  I also have multiple carriers and the Ergo :smileyhappy:  They're only 10 weeks, so I'm new to this..  but as I figure stuff out, I'll share it with you!  :smileyvery-happy:

I do. I have a 6 year old, and then also a 3 y/o and a 1 y/o.


It's tricky. Preschool is a good thing these days for me.
