    Re: Big family problems

    Yes, it'll work.

    I'd put the two boosters in the third row on the sides (if they're backless, make sure there are headrests). Two forward facers in the second row anywhere they fit well. One rear facer in the second row, one in the middle of the third row.

    Only a rear facer can safely go in the middle of the third row, as there's a lap belt only (no boosters) and no tether (no forward facers). There are tethers for all seats in the second row, so the forward facers go there.

    You could do a booster in the second row with the forward facers, and two rear facers in the third row with a booster. That's another option.
