I've got ds1 - 4.5, ds2 - 3 and am expecting a 3rd in the spring. We have a renault scenic which we're not too fond of but that's a whole other story! Anway we were assured it would take 3 car seats when we bought it last year but now we're going to need it to we thought we'd make sure.


The ones we have don't fit!! We have maxi-cosi one Rodi highback booster, 1 priori stage 2 and then we'd need the cabrio for the baby. There's no way we can get these in so what do you use??

a graco auto baby, a young sport and a rodi.

i don't have three kids but have fitted three seats in. i find it easier if we move the two end seats back and pull the middle one forward so that you can get to the seat belt sockets more easily.

we have a senic, have 2 boys but often have lo's friend in car. We have had a maxi cosi rodi, max cosi priori and a graco autobaby in the back by moving the seats like choufleur. We have also had a rodi, priori and britax first class si rearfacing.
I found it easiest to put the rodi and graco/britax on the outside seats and the priori in the middle. i did this as i wasn't sure if the rodi would be as safe in the middle as the seat was forward so the seatbelt was stretched more. Have no idea if that is true or not that was just my feeling.
I I suppose if it is as safe it would be easier to have the eldest in the middle as they would be able to climb in and stap themselves in. The people over at the essex car centre might be able to advise the best combination. Hope this has helped.
