    Cool Fitting three carseats into a 2005 Jeep Liberty

    I need some help. My dd just turned 2 and weighs 24lbs, I also have 10 month old twins who are about 20lbs each and rapidly out growing their infant seats. Buying a new car just isn't an option right now and I'm having a hard time finding a car seat combination that works. I currently have my dd in a Britax Roundabout and the twins in Graco infant seats. I'm expecting to buy new seats for all three, I just can't figure out which seats work. I'm planning to have the twins in rf seats for at least another 8 months. Thanks!

    A Radian will fit RFing only in the center seat. It is too "long" to fit behind a normal person in an outboard seat. It works great with LATCH in the outboard seats when it's FFing (future consideration.)

    I would try doing RFing Marathon (or other Britax seat) RFing Radian, then RFing Roundabout. I'm sure it would work with 2 MA/Blvd sized seat and the Radian, but I'd give the RA a try before getting three new seats.

    Depending on DOM on the RA I may suggest selling it and buying 2 Marathons and a Radian. Placing all three children rearfacing . Because the Radian is narrow but long like pp said it would go in the center and because the Marathons sit up on a base they fit really nicely next to the low Radian when facing the same direction yet another reason they should all be rearfacing.

    Albee has Marthons on sale for $210 (Aqua & Plum are cute) so you could get those and has the Granite Radian 65 for $200

    If you choose to keep the 2 year old forward facing I might suggest Frontier outboard/ Radian rearfacing center for taller twin and roundabout (if it makes more sense to keep it) or Marathon (since their on sale and could take the twins much longer rearfacing)

    Just my Good Luck I hope you all fall in love with your new carseat arrangement.
