    Re: 3 carseats

    How tall and heavy is everyone? I've never heard of an eight year old fitting in the Symphony in either harness or booster mode (the top harness height or highest booster setting is too low, it's no longer above their shoulders).

    Most eight year olds are booster ready. Does your eight year old have something going on preventing this? That would help us with figuring out who can sit where.

    Once we have this info we can see who gets a new seat and who sits where. But a boostered child may ease up a tether location (you'd need one instead of two tethered only).
