    Re: 3 rear facing carseats in Suburban

    Is there a certain car seat that you use in the 3 re row rear facing so that the captain chairs will fold back into a usable position? I have twins and a toddler. I can't fit a car seat in 3rd row behind the captain chair( babies are still in infant seats) because the captain chair won't go back into place.

    Can you take the head rest of the captain's chair? That is what we did, v and then used a rf radian in the third row.

    I haven't tried the above suggestion, but when I had a Suburban, I couldn't find any seat that would install RFing in the 3rd row.

    I am having the same exact issue! Have you found a brand of car seat that fits rear-facing behind the captains seat?
