    3 across 2006 Odyssey

    I am needing to get 3 across the 3rd row of a 2006 Honda Odyssey.The kids that will be riding in it the most are as follows:

    7.5 year old 51 lbs approx 43"
    5.5 year old 63 lbs approx 42"
    3.5 year old 31 lbs approx 34"
    6 month old 19 lbs

    The seats I have to work with currently are:

    Graco Highback Booster (I think its called Affix- it has lower anchors)
    2 Graco Nautilus
    Diono Pacifica
    Graco Snugride
    2 Harmony no back boosters

    I would like to have the three older ones in back all harnessed forward facing. Due to back problems I don't want to rear face in the 3rd row. The 3.5 year old was just turned forward facing. A few times a week there will be another 3 year old riding with me and than this fall a newborn. The other three year old is about the same size as my 3 year old. I am wiling to purchase new seats but am running into the problem of finding a narrow harnessed seat that harnesses over 65 lbs. The new Diono seats are only labeled for 65 lbs now when they use to be 85 lbs. I was think of purchasing 2 Britax Pioneers for the outside seats of the 3rd row and putting my Diono Pacifica in the middle. Then putting 6 month old in snugride drivers 2nd row. When I have the other 3 year old I was planing on putting her in one of the pioneers since they have the no rethread harness I can just adjust it to her and put the 7.5 year old in a booster in 2nd row next to the baby.

    My concern is if the two pioneers would fit in the 3rd row with the Diono seat. I am not against purchasing 2 more Dionos but the 5.5 year old is almost at its limit and he is not mature enough to be in a booster.

    I don't really have an answer for you, but I just wanted to confirm that you listed the heights of your oldest 2 children correctly. Should they be 53" and 52"? I think putting the Pacifica in the center might be a good place to start, but I don't know your chances of fitting Nautilus or Pioneers back there. I wouldn't buy more Dionos either.

    Yes. Thanks for catching that. Was typing on my phone and must have hit the wrong button. What about a Britax Frontier, Diono Pacifica and a narrow booster like the bubble bum.

    You aren't going to fit 3 across with seats as wide as the Frontier or Nautilus in the mix, unfortunately. And fyi, I found the Diono seats nearly impossible to properly install in the rear center, to the point I'd call it incompatible. (With some yelling I did get it in outboard.) (I had an 05, same body style.)

    Perhaps the Pacifica (to be later replaced with a narrow HBB), a Maestro for the 3.5 year old, and a narrow booster like the Bubblebum? Once the 5 year old is a bit larger you can switch to a booster (maybe the Peg Perego Flex 120, not sure on its dimensions.)

    I think you could fit a bubble bum backless booster in the middle, between any other two seats that you have. I have a 2008 Ody, and we have a bubble bum between two FR85's! It's tight for my 8 year old to get buckled in the bubble bum, but it works.
