In about two weeks, we'll be adding a newborn to the mix, so I need to shift our seats around. Currently both kids are in the captains chairs.
6 y.o. FF Nautilus, nowhere near weight or height limit
2 y.o. RF Marathon, also has lots of weight/height room left RFing
newborn infant seat
My thought has been to put 6 y.o. in the center back (where the only top tether is located), keep 2 y.o. in Marathon behind driver's seat, and put the infant seat behind the front passenger seat. That way, 6 y.o. can climb in (she is excellent at buckling herself up and always snugs herself up nice and tight), I can snap the infant seat in, and then put the 2 y.o. in her seat before I get in the car.
I'm not sure if that would be better, or if I should fold down the passenger seat captain's chair and put the baby next to the 6 y.o. in the back (if I can get the two seats installed properly next to each other). Any thoughts on that? I suppose we may just have to play around with it and see what works for us, but any BTDT advice would be greatly appreciated.
If I can't get the two to fit next to each other, does the Nautilus *have* to go in the middle of the bench seat, since that is the only location with a top tether? I'm sure I'll eventually have 2 RFing in convertibles so will have to move one of them back there at some point, regardless of what I do now.
