    3 boosters in Tesla Model 3

    Our family recently bought a Tesla Model 3 and was wondering if anyone has been able to fit 3 boosters in the back. I want all my kids in a booster (5, 6 and 8). I usually drive an Oddy and my youngest sit in 2 Frontiers and my oldest in a Pioneer. Thank you in advance.

    Re: 3 boosters in Tesla Model 3

    With Teslas, you're dealing with a couple of problems: a buckle that's even with the seat bight (crack) and you can't use LATCH with boosters. So even if you weren't dealing with a 3-across, you'd need a narrow booster just to access the buckle.

    If you're looking for a combination seat (harness that converts to belt-positioning booster), I'd look at the Chicco MyFit. It's narrow and the harness adjusts smoothly and stores on-board.

    The Evenflo Big Kid Amp is narrow and inexpensive. It doesn't adjust very tall, but it can become a backless booster.

    The Peg Perego Viaggio Flex 120 is a narrow booster that doesn't have arms, so you don't have to worry about those getting in the way. It's very expensive and doesn't convert to a backless booster. So basically you're spending a lot of money on a narrow booster without arms, but that's kind of what you're looking for. The Evenflo may accomplish what you need though.

    Depending on how heavy your 8 yr old is, the Safety 1st Incognito may work. It has a 60 lbs. minimum weight limit, but it's narrow, thin, and discreet (and inexpensive).

    The Harmony Youth Booster is also narrow and if I remember tomorrow, I try it out in ours.
