Question Carseats for TRIPLETS!



Hi! We are parents of 2 yr old triplets and we are about to buy a car (a 7 passenger crossover) and three convertible car seats as well... We are a little overwhelmed because there are different types of cars and car seats, and It seems that we can´t find the right combination for us, we have seen three different crossovers and none of them have the latch system in the third row... besides, I was wondering if the safest place to install the car seats is the three of them in the second row (if they fit) or two in the second row and one in the third row (if we can find one car that has the latch system? We are not sure what is best for them.

We would really appreciate your help so we can know what is the best/safest option for the three of our children... Thank you very much!

Hi there.

How tall and heavy are your kids? Are they rear or forward facing? In what seats are they in now?

Lower anchors aren't required, and they have a weight limit anyway. You can always use the seatbelt to install. But the top tether is vitally important for forward facing, so I'd make sure you have that if you plan to put someone in the third row.
