For those seats that do have LATCH, it's aimed far more at making sure the seat doesn't fly around your car in a collision if it happened to be unoccupied than as a safety feature. Read your manual, and it will tell you all you need to know. Make sure to buckle the booster whenever your daughter isn't in it.

I generally have an 'everything in moderation' approach to things like the exersaucer. We had one, we use it moderately. We also had a swing and a bouncy chair. None of these things seem to have caused DS any permanent harm. Just don't leave the baby in them all the time, and I'm sure you'll be fine!

So if we were to get 3 Radians to go across the back, does a Radian really fit a NB in a way that is ok? I still have the Graco Safeseat from ds2 and I really do prefer a bucket...

We've never broken one, and I used to give them to the daycare kids with milk in them. Evenflo brand. We also have carpet and linoleum.
That's correct. Below for rf'ing, to keep the child from "ramping up" the seat in a head on collison and above for ff'ing to avoid compressing the child's spine.
Convertibles actually take up less room than a bucket seat, generally, because for an older child they can be much more upright. (Up to 30* for most seats, vs. the 45* a newborn needs) I have a truefit rf'ing behind my tall husband with no problems in a Mazda Protege. Some seats I would recommend: The Cosco Scenera The First Years/Learning Curve True Fit The Graco MyRide 65 The Evenflo Triumph Advance The Safety First Complete Air. Your goal should be to keep your LO...
As long as the middle has a lap/shoulder belt, I don't see any reason why it couldn't.
You need a convertible seat next. They look like big chairs, and have a 5 point harness inside of them just like your bucket seat. There are buckets with higher weight limits, if a bucket is important to you and you have the money to spare, because you will still need a convertible seat down the road. Some convertible seats I would recommend are: -Cosco Scenera -The First Years/Learning Curve Truefit -The Graco MyRide 65 -The Sunshine Kids Radian and -The Safety...
