    How to fit 3 seats in a sedan?

    How can I fit three seats safely in a sedan (honday accord, 2 boosters and one infant seat)? The problem I am having is that the two boosters tilt to the side when I move them all the way to the edge of the seat because the seat is slightly elevated on the sides. I read that you cannot use foam noodles to correct this with a forward facing seat. However, I cannot fit an infant seat in the middle without moving the toddler seats to the side. I cannot buy a new car - what to do????

    Re: How to fit 3 seats in a sedan?

    What vehicle do you have? And what are the ages of the children using the boosters? Also what boosters?

    There are so many different boosters out there, maybe a different booster would work better, perhaps one that is narrower? I am not an expert on boosters so I will let someone else give advice there

    It's absolutely possible - although perhaps not with the seats you currently have. What seats do you have and what are the ages & weights of your children?

    Also, if your boostered children are small enough for the larger harnessed seats, they might be easier to use than boosters in your 3 across situation.
