    Question Looking for advice!

    I have a 2014 Toyota Highlander that has 3rd row seating and have 2 daughters that are in Graco 4Evers. My oldest is FF and her seat is in the latch system; the baby is RF using the seat belt. I currently have the girls in the middle row, one on each side of the car.

    Looking for the best options of where to put there seats at and have them installed correctly. When we have people ride with us they always have to sit in the 3rd row by crawling in the hatch or sit between the two girls in the middle seat.

    Hi there.

    Your forward facer has to go in the second row. That's where your tethers are. You don't have any in the third row.

    If your rear facer fits in the third row you could put them there. That would leave two seats in the second row for adults. I can understand, though, if that's not ideal for you.

    If your four year old is under 40 pounds, you could put both kids rear facing in the third row, IF they fit.

    Thank you so much! I didn't think there was any other way to put them. The seats we have will not fit in the third row rf if the 2rd row is in position, I tried that. I would have to lay the seat back down for it to work.
