    3 carseats in 2005 Uplander

    Hi, I have recently bought a 2005 Uplander. I have two sons (almost 5 and 2.5 yrs) who are both in FF Britax Boulevards, and I have a Graco Snugride for our baby due in Nov/Dec.
    Seating options are: two middle buckets and a rear 50/50 split bench.

    There are no built in carseats on ours. From what I read on here, the two Boulevards can be installed on the middle buckets and the infant base can go belted in the middle of the rear bench.

    I have not personally looked at the options for the carseats in my van because I get frustrate installing them, so my boyfriend gets them put in good. What are any suggestions for how the seats should go? (My idea of putting the infant base on a middle bucket and putting the two Boulevards in the back bench would not work for whatever reason, he said something about the headrests??? To me it made sense to have an available bucket next to the baby to have an adult to assist all 3 kids).

    So he put the infant base in the back and the other 2 on the buckets. I this arrangement best? I have read alot of problems with installation in the Uplander but not experienced them myself (i.e., headrest in the way, not enough LATCH or tether locations inside???) so I don't know how we should go about this and everyone be safe and content. Any suggestions?

    Also, when the baby is at weight/age for a RF bigger seat I want to get the same, Britax Boulevard for him/her....what would I do then? And when I can have 3 FF Boulevards??
