Going out with a friend tomorrow and I'm a bit nervy about car seat safety!

Depends on the car and whether you can access the seatbelt sockets.

Will depend on the type of car and the seats

Never managed it yet in a Yaris or Prius. Might be possible in some people carrier types. Otherwise depending on age of children you might:

Put oldest in front seat (if you can turn off passenger airbag). Small adult (if you have one) squeezes in between two seats in back.

Try one on booster cushion in middle.

Take two cars. Terribly frustrating but often seems you just have to!

Yes....just with a bit of clever jiggerling, middle seat clipped in first then then the other two....and i have a small car, but although its small it is quite wide! What are your seats and what is your car?

If you choose narrower options for hbbs. (Vauxhall Omega experience)

Britax adventurers is also a narrow one.

We can do it but have a large car that we bought just to be able to fit 3 car seats in Ford S max

Depends - you can in a few of my friends cars, they are big 4 X 4 Mercedes or volvos

I can . But I have two narrow hbb and a large car (grand scenic) that has three individual seats in the back. I couldn't in my previous car that was a bench seat type arrangement .

We can in our Galaxy!!

Can in my zafira..but I have to pull side car seat (high backed booster) half out clip safety belt in...then shove car seat back in and tell them to breathe in!

I couldn't in my Honda Civic.

We have 3 hbb in a row in our Toyota verso. I don't think there are many cars that will fit 3 in the back though unless they are people carriers.
If they won't fit, I'd put the oldest child in the front (in the hbb) and the narrowest adult squashes between the two seats in the back.

You can get 3 in a VW Golf mark4, Vauxhall Zafira, Alfa Romeo 156 and Landrover Discovery smile
