    Help! Odyssey at Capacity

    Hi all,

    I need help- havent bought car seats for infants in about 6 years and dont know what's what anymore.

    We have 4 kids, all age 5 and up and in Britax Parkway SGLs. We are expecting again, and trying to figure out the best option for the car. As many of you techs know, the 2007 Odyssey seats 8, with a removable middle middle row seat. Not sure what we can get that will fit, or the right configuration. I love the Boulevards and so do the kids, and I cant imagine buying all new seats....

    We also have a Honda Accord 05 for when we have 2 kids and the to-be baby (blended family, so sometimes we dont have all the kids with us). Also has Parkway SGLs.

    We'd like either a baby bucket or a long-use convertible. Plan to keep rear facing as long as possible, plus we have long-torsoed kids (generally) who never outgrow by weight but do need a high height limit.

    Re: Help! Odyssey at Capacity

    Welcome to

    How big and old are you four older kids? Are they all riding in boosters at this point? If so, I'm wondering if any of them might be able to move into a no back booster if that helps with space.

    Thanks! I'm hesitant about the backless because I like the shoulder placement, but they are:

    5, 50lbs, 42"
    7, 46lbs, 43"
    7, 43lbs, 43"
    6, 54lbs, 46"

    They will all be older and probably at least an inch taller by the time the baby is here...

    If they are backless, should I put them in the center?
