Ask Jamie: Carseat Plans
I’m curious to know your carseating plans for three little ones. How is Bo currently carseated and what are your plans for your girls?
I currently drive a GMC Acadia, which I love. We have no plans to trade in the Acadia or switch to a minivan. My car will be the family car and will house all three carseats.
I have put a lot of thought into how we will arrange the car once the girls arrive and I think that a lot of the organization will be trial and error. I am unsure at this point if it will be smarter to put Bo in the far back and the girls in the captain’s chairs or to leave Bo where he is currently (captain’s chair behind the driver) and put both of the girls in the far back, leaving the second captain’s chair empty for another passenger and to move forward to place the girls in the back. Any thoughts or input on this would be greatly appreciated!
As far as actual carseats, we have two Graco SnugRide carseats for the girls. One is the seat that we bought new for Bo and we bought another one, new, recently. I still need to purchase a Double Snap N Go Stroller to haul the carseats. While I do not think we’ll be going too many places when the girls are really little, I know that there is no way I am going to be able to carry both carseats and corral Bo on my own without a stroller.
Bo currently has a Britax Marathon and we plan to buy two more of these for the girls when they are ready. The Marathon holds little ones to 65 pounds — so it is a long-lasting carseat and has the top safety rating.
We have two extra carseats that we inherited from cousin Charlie and one of those is in Mike’s car and one is in my mom’s car. I assume those will stay in their respective vehicles, as Bo will probably leave the house more than I will for awhile!
I am also still pining for the Valco Twin Stroller with the toddler attachment so we can go for walks in the neighborhood and have a stroller that will hold all three. I just can’t justify the cost at this point.
How have you arranged the carseats in your car? Those of you with experience with three under two, how do you do it? What products do you recommend?
