hi all. i currently have a Skoda Fabia and have just discovered i'm pregnant (early days). getting another car is not an option right now sad. i have a 5 year old, a 14 month old and will have another one coming along soon. please tell me i can fit 3 car seats into the rear of the car?? not sure i'm asking too much here but we only have one car between us and it would make family outings impossible if we couldn't all fit in the car!

I'm not sure if three car seats will fit in the back but what you can do when all five of you go in the car is put one of kid's car seats in the front (I usually put our eldest there cos its nice to chat with him) then the other grown up can squeeze in between the othe kids seats in the back. Not perfect but at leat you won't have to buy another car!

yer i was thinking that, it's just so painful!! i've spent hours researching trying to find options and everyone seems to think the mamia babyseats are fairly slim so it might at least be a bit more comfortable for me to fit between em! thanks for the reply, i guess i'm hoping for some sort of miracle!

We had friends with an Octovia who had to get rid of it upon birth of 3rd child (similar ages to yours). They just couldn't fit 3 seats in the back!
Have you seen carseat Although it looks expensive, it could be cheaper than changing your car!

Wow that would be £1099 on carseats! I'm not a fan of how awkward they'd be to remove but they are a really good idea! I've discovered and ordered a bubblebum booster. Gonna test this out when it comes, been looking at bigger cars too x

What about a Bubblebum in the middle for the 5 year old?

Do you have one? I've ordered one just waiting for it to come! Is it any good? X

I use the bubble bum as an occasional only, but for that is has been great.
