Mothers of three in car seats! i need your help!!
January 23, 2013 at 1:37 PM

so i have two girls who will be 1 & 2 next month. i am pregnant with my third now and we have a ford focus. theres like a foot inbetween the two car seats if that and i need a bigger car to fit three car seats. any one have a car that holds 3 car seats? ive been looking at vans i just hate the look of them so was seeing if any women had a regular 5 seater car that fit allt the kids. it will be a lot better on gas than a suv or van plus im too young to be a soccer mom with a mini van, im only 20 :p any help would be lovely :)

    I have fit 3 in my friends focus. It just depends on what carseats you have. Assuming all three will be rearfacing just get narrow seats.

    yea im crazy :p but we can provide for them and i like the idea of them being so close in age. after this one i want to wait about 5 years and possibly have more.

    no i have my oldest forward facing and when my second gets bigger (shes still perfect sized for the rear facing) she will be switching too. just my personal choice to forward face. i probably wont switch her around till shes a year and a half which will be a month before the new baby gets here

    I don't know about 3 carseats but my friends new Jetta fits 2 with a lot of space in between so maybe enough for 3?
