Question 2006 ford Taurus LE- 3 across - Canada



I have a 2006 ford Taurus LE that I need to fit a 10 month old (in an evenflo infant carrier currently), a new born (due soon don't have an infant carrier yet) and a 3 year old in a secure kid 100 stage 2 convertible car seat.
Any ideas on how to make this work? Any really skinny seats I could invest in that r safe??
Thanks :)

Hello and welcome to!

I would suggest buying at least one Diono Radian. I would try the newborn in the infant seat outboard, the 10-month-old in a rear-facing Radian in the center, and the 3-year-old in the Secure Kid in the other outboard position.

You could also try the SecureKid in the center (which would normally be the preferred position for forward-facing kids), but you might run into two issues with that arrangement. 1) It might be hard to get the center child into the seat with the two rear-facing seats (unless you put in the infant seat last) and 2) It might now fit.

I did a three across in my Taurus but I did have to puchase a Radian and a Keyfit to make it work. I BARELY had room. Third seat was a (discontinued)FisherPrice Booster. I agree with Radian RF with your other seats, or two Radians. However, I COULD NOT get a good outboard install with seatbelt and a FF Radian so you may have to keep a FF Radian in a Latch position or Center.
