No, not mine but I have a mom and dad to be coming to a clinic tomorrow to figure out carseats for there upcoming triplets. What is the best suggestion for 3 across? Anything other then RN's?
My concern would be fitting seats that will fit babies who are likely to be preemies/low birthweight. They may not be able to safely take all three until someone grows a bit.
If all RNs or RN/infant seats is too wide, consider the Graco convertibles. Both the MyRide and Size4Me puzzle well with the RN and should fit newborns fine.
featherhead said:The infant padding on the Canadian MyRides really sucks. It is just a pad under the bum. Nothing on the sides, or behind the back. It would definitely not be supportive enough for a newborn, especially a possible preemie.
What? Did this change? The myride I had included a thick cushy infant pad that went up the seat back as well... The new ones on the TRU website on the other hand don't show the bum pad but do have a nice looking head support:
I really like the myride and how it puzzles with the radian. Though I might well prefer buckets also if possible. Is the first years bucket narrow, or does it just look it because of the shape?
I believe even with the old pad a crotch roll was needed for the itty bitty babes.
I was recently told the SR30 measures the narrowest width-wise. It also has very low bottom slots (comes out of box on 2nd lowest,) and an adjustable crotch buckle.
Others to try are the Sure Fit and Keyfit - I don't know how the Keyfit puzzles, but I know the Surefit isn't a very wide seat.
I think the Fusion is pretty decently spaced too so she very well could do 3 infant seats. (And I think I'd want 3 infants seats with 3 babies...)
