    wife expecting TRIPLETS!!

    The triplets are due in July and we have a 3 year old, a 5 year old and an 8 year old, all in booster seats. We currently drive a Grand Caravan and need something that can handle 3 infant car seats, 3 boosters and cargo. Any recomendations?

    Re: wife expecting TRIPLETS!!

    I would look into Sunshine Kids Radians for the 3-year-old and 5-year-old (they should still be harnessed) and possibly for the triplets. It is possible, however, that the triplets won't fit well in Radians (depending on their size, of course).

    Congrats!



    ETA: I just realized I think are you are asking about a VEHICLE, not seats. OOPS!

    Sorry, I can't be a big help then.

    A Chevy/GMC Suburban or a Ford Expedition EL.

    The 3-year-old would be much safer in a harnessed seat than in a booster, too. Same goes for the 5-year-old, depending on the child's size.

    My bad. The 3 y/o is still in a 5 pt harness. 5 y/o is a big boy and is in a booster with the seat belt.

    Your going to want to look at a large size SUV (Suburban/Yukon XL or Expedition XL) just for the pure fact you will have more cargo area then a minivan.
