We have a Nissan Altima, and will have 3 car seats in the back.

We bought a Honda pilot last summer knowing we were planning on this third baby. Our older two are 5.5 and 2.5. The older one is in a booster and our little one is in a front facing 5-pt harness seat by evenflo but it's huge. I am pretty sure an infant seat will fit but if not, we can set up the third row an let our oldest climb back there.
I will have to look into the radian that has been mentioned! I've considered putting my 2.5 yr old in a smaller booster that still has the 5 pt harness. Well see!! I refuse to drive a minivan haha. I'm very happy with the Pilot- it seats 8 comfortably! Last summer we took the four of us and another family of four to the beach in it- so it fit 4 adults and 4 carseats AND all our beach stuff!

The problem we are running into is that carseats that advertise that they are narrow say they are 17 in...which is what ours are.

Hi, Katie,

Amazon lists the width on the Radian as 17".

One in the back isnt an option, as this is our 5th baby. :)

Before you look for a new car, you should look for new carseats.

Could your 7 yr old get out of their booster by unbuckling their self? If so putting them in the back row would be an option and keep the younger two that need help or are completely dependent in the two captain seats in the middle. I guess even if all three still need you to get them out putting one in the back row would be a better option than the front seat, not very convenient for you when it comes time to get them out, but much safer.

I drive a Silverado with an extended crew cab, so three car seats would fit in a row in the back seat in there, but it would be tight and hard to get the middle person out.
