    4 car seats in a 2012 Odyssey - Canada

    We currently have in the middle row, a Diono R120 rearfacing with a 3 year old behind the passenger and a Britax Marathon 65 forward facing with a 5 year old in the middle seat, the captain chair behind the driver removed from the car. In the third row we have a 7 year old forward facing in a Britax Frontier XT on the passenger side and an 11 month old in a infant bucket on the driver side.

    We would like to have the 3 year old and the 11 month old rear facing right beside each other in the middle row, the 7 year old (has been booster trained) in a high back booster and the 5 year old forward facing in the third row and have room for a low back booster if possible in the middle of the third row for carpooling purposes. The Diono and the marathon both fit rear facing in the middle beside each other but the marathon is about the expire. We donít want to use the frontier as a booster because itís so wide (didnít realize when it was bought). What should we buy to make this happen? We are also in Canada so not all seats are available.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Is the baby outgrowing the bucket? That would be the first thing I would try.

    The only Canadian seats that work in the +1 rear facing that I know of are the Clek seats (Foonf and Fllo) and the Cosco Scenera NEXT. Oh, and the Graco Extend2FitóI think thatís what Iíd get if itís in your budget.

    Thanks. I looked up the Clek Fllo and I think that might be the best option for the middle seat since itís on sale at the moment. I have a harmony defender 360 for the 5 year old, so Iíll just have to find a narrow high back booster for the 7 year old, but there is no rush on that since she doesnít complain too much about being harnessed.
