    Maxima car seats, three across —help

    Hello all, I have 2 kids but due to an emergency I’m gonna have to watch my niece this summer. So just for the summer I will have to fit 3 kids into my car. I have a 2009 maxima and a 2013 cx-5. I have a 21lb child that rear faces, 43lb child forward facing and my niece is 65lbs. Her mother has her in a backless booster. I currently hv a Britax Marathon and boulevard, graco nautilus and a Cosco scenera. I am willing to buy one more seat to make this work. Has anybody been able to get 3 across in either of these vehicles and what do you recommend I do. Only 1 child needs to rear face, 1 in convertible and 1 in backless booster but I can put her in a Highback if it’ll fit easier.
    Thank you so much to all,
    Jonathan

    Do you have a Scenera, or a Scenera Next?

    Is your six year old booster ready?

    What seat does your 6 year old normally ride in? If you put a seat for her outboard (the narrowest one that you have that she fits in) and the Scenera on the other side for your toddler, how much space do you have in the middle? Install both outside seats with seat belts and try to move them as close to the outside of the car as possible.
