Help with carseat!

Here's the situation. We have a 2004 Toyota Sienna and 4 kids with #5 coming in about 7 weeks. Our current setup has the 2 older kids in booster seats in the 3rd row seat and the 2 others in the 2nd row (both in convertibles). We need to move the 3 yr old to the back between the older 2 kids in order to have a place for the newborn in the 2nd row but her current seat will not fit in between the 2 boosters (which both of them still need) plus they need to be able to buckle themselves towards the center. So is there a 5 pt harness seat that has a smaller base that will fit back there and still allow the other 2 to buckle?

Re: Help with carseat!

Are you wanting to keep the youngest two in the middle row because you need easier access to them to assist with buckling? Or is there some other reason? When you're trying to fit 5 kids into 5 seating locations, the more flexibility you have with who goes where, the easier it is to find a solution. It would help to know the manufacturers and models of each of your current seats (including the boosters), weights and heights of your kids (and how well they fit in their current seats, if possible), and also what your budget is for purchasing new seats.
