help with 3 across

I currently have a rf 13 month old and a ff 3 year old. we are trying for another baby so by time baby gets here we would have The rf infant, ff 2 year old and ff 4 year old. How can I make this work in my prius. I dont mind buying all new seats.
TIA

Re: help with 3 across

I do three across in the back seat of my Passat 2005 wagon with three Radians.

Mine were - Newborn, 22 months, and almost 3 1/2 when we started this set up (actually we used the newborn Graco Snugride bucket first - and then the Radian).

Both scenarios worked with our three across.

We still use this now at - 2 1/2, 4 1/2, and 6.

Do a search on car-seat.org. There are a lot of techs over there who can help.

A quick search says that 2 Radians and a Keyfit will work. Diapers.com has free return shipping, so you can play, and if it doesn't work, send it back for free. I've done it twice, and it is super easy to return there.

Re: help with 3 across

The keyfit is a well-loved infant seat. It is amazingly easy to install.

We just bought a combi coccoro and it is so compact! You would be able to do three across very easily. I LOVE this seat and highly recommend it. Our 14 mo DS is rf in it and he loves it too.

I think 33# for RF, 40# for FF. The RF height is usually outgrown around age 2. It is NOT an infant bucket seat, so if you have your heart set on one of those, keep looking.
