Need help with new seat for infant and placement

Hi there,

Its been a long time since I posted. I'm a mom to 3 and I'm 33+ weeks pregnant with our 4th and I just realized that our Combi infant seat is expired. Help!

This will definitely be our last kid. I don't want to go buying a $300 infant seat that we'll only use for 3 or 4 months. Also, where do I put the car seats?

Shiloh is 8, 53", 65# in a Graco Affix HBB. Joey is 6, 49" 62# in a Graco Affix HBB. Finley is 2.5; 35" and 28# FFing (very newly FFing) in a Graco MyRide 65. Right now I have all 3 in the middle row and we have the third row laid down so that we have cargo space.

What seat would be good for the baby? And ideas on configuration? The older 2 are able to buckle themselves, they sit correctly in their seats, and I can trust them to behave. So I could put them in the back, and the 2 babies in the middle row on the 60 side and fold down the 40 side so that they can climb to the back. But I'm not sure.

I don't mind spending a chunk of change on a good seat, just not an infant one that we won't use again.

Thoughts?

What vehicle are you in? Are you interested in using a convertible, rather than a rear-facing only, seat from birth?

Oops, sorry I forgot to mention. I'm in a 2012 Honda Pilot. And yes, I'd rather use a convertible. I moved my last one to a convertible at 4weeks. My kids were 10#, 8#, & 7# at birth. This one is measuring a little big so far, so I'm not too worried about her being too small for a convertible.
