3 Across in Durango

Hi there,
We have three kids (7 months RF, 3 and 5 both FF). Currently the 3 & 5 year olds are in the third row as I cannot get their seats to fit three across in the middle row. They both get extremely car sick and I need to move them to the middle. We need to buy a new seat for baby as he is ready to move out of his bucket seat and wonder if there is a way to use our current seats and add the third? Current seats are: Britax Boulevard Click-tight, Britax Frontier Clicktight
Or we could move the 5 year old into a high back booster (she's well past the size), use Frontier and get another seat for baby.

Besides going to 3 cleks or 3 dionos, are there any other options?

What year is the Durango? The new Graco SlimFit3 LX is actually even slimmer than the Dionos and Cleks so thankfully we have a new slim option available at a more affordable price. What is the 5yo’s height and weight?

oh that's wonderful news. I hope they approve it in Canada soon. My 5 yr old is 44lbs and 43" and my Durango is a 2015

So you are in Canada? That’s good to know since there are different options available than in the US.
Is the 5yo newly 5 or closer to 6? If she has the maturity to handle a booster, that might be an easier long-term option. The Maxi-Cosi RodiFix is now available in Canada and is a great 3-across booster option if you can swing the price. You should be fine to use the Boulevard for the baby. The Frontier will be the wild-card and the least likely to work for 3-across due to its width. It does sometimes work though and the magic of ClickTight generally gives you more room to work with by being able to really hug the outer edge of the vehicle seat while still yielding a solid install. I’d give it a shot and see how things go. If the Frontier ends up too wide, the Chicco MyFit or the Graco Tranzitions SnugLock are slimmer options that still have seat belt lock-offs.
