    Question New Car Seats needed - help please!

    I have a 3 month old baby, an almost 4 yo DS (35 pounds) and a 6yo DD (45 pounds)


    My car which we use the vast majority of the time - I have the 4yo and 6yo in the 3rd row, and baby in the second.

    Right now both 4yo and 6yo are in Britax Marathons.

    Husband has a large sedan and in there is a Britax Marathon and an Evenflo Triumph Advance.
    In each car one Britax Marathon has just expired and the other one in my car will expire in Feb.

    Is the Evenflo a 5 yr or 6 yr expiry?

    Am thinking about getting Britax Frontier 85's for the 4yo and 6yo.


    For DH's car what about getting the Maxi Cosi Pria 70 for baby and 4yo to share and a Maestro for 6yo or 4yo? Was thinking of getting the Parkway, but 4yo couldn't share that.
    With those options DH could take a combination of any 2 of the 3 children.

    Then when baby out grows the Chicco Keyfit he's in now, put the Pria in my car and get a cheapish convertible for DH's car.

    Thoughts please!

    Sounds like you have it figured out!! What are the vehicles exactly? Is your 6 year old booster ready? If so, boosters are fairly easy to move, so it wouldn't be that big a deal to have a 2nd seat for dad's car.

    Mine is a 2011 ford explorer and hubs is a Taurus

    I really want to keep DD in a 5 point harness.
