    3 across in 05 Toyota Camry

    We are expecting baby #3 this summer and I'm trying to figure out how to fit 3 carseats in my 2005 Toyota Camry.

    DD1 is 6 will be 6 1/2 when baby comes, not sure of her stats at the moment. She is currently riding harnessed in a nautilus and is even or just a smidge under the top slots, not sure on weight but a couple months ago was 54lbs. I was thinking a parkway sgl, she does pretty well riding in a booster

    DD2 is 3 will be 4 when baby comes. She weighs 37lbs not sure on height. She's pretty tall, but most of it is in her legs. She is rear facing in a myride and still has at least 2 inches above her head. I was thinking a radian. She will most likely be forward facing at that point, but I wouldn't mind having the option of rear facing.

    I have no idea for the baby. I'm fine with a convertible, but would prefer an infant bucket. I'm hoping to have the baby in the middle so the girls can help entertain while we are in the car. I figure it would be easier to move the infant seat in and out over the girls' seats then to move the baby and try to buckle them in a convertible.

    Cost isn't an issue. Dh figures it's cheaper to buy new seats then a new vehicle right now.

    Thanks, Brandi

    I'd put your oldest into a booster, your middle into a Radian, and consider a Combi Cocorro for the baby.

    This was my setup for a while in my Malibu, which has a similar back seat. We did use an infant seat before that, the Combi Shuttle. Also, check out the Chicco Keyfit because it is on the narrow side.

    Also the My Ride is GREAT in a 3 across! Put it in the middle and your 6yo will be able to buckle easily next to it and you'll have lots of room on the other side for the baby. It sits up really high on a very thin base so you gain a lot of inches. My backseat has Radian, My Ride, turbobooster right now.
