Here is my situation. We have a 2010 Hyundai Sonata and two other cars (1987 and 1966) that only have lap belts with the tabs that you pull to make them tighter. Our DC are DS 6.5 and DD 2.5. At the moment, this is what we have for car seats. In the Sonata, DS is in a Graco TurboBooster and DD is in a Graco Comfortsport. When we drive the older cars, DS rides in a Nautilus and DD is still in the Comfortsport. The Comfortsport expires this month, so I need to get something else for her. Since we don't plan on not having the older cars, I have to have something that will keep her in a 5 point harness for as long as possible, because when they both grow out of the Nautilus and whatever else I get, they will be in a lap belt only. Cringe :|
I have been looking at another Nautilus, but I feel that with her build (she is average, but I'm comparing her to my skinny son) the crotch strap might be an issue with her. DS doesn't complain about the crotch strap at all and it doesn't appear to be too small for him. Also, we may have another child. When this happens, I will need three across the back of the Sonata. There are no minivans in our future.
So, if I was in the future to need a TurboBooster and some sort of infant seat (I will have to get new, as my Snugride is expired that I used for both kids), plus another seat FF, what is my best best for fitting all this in. A Radian? Will a Radian FF, a TurboBooster and, say, another Snugride fit across the back seat of a Sonata?
I am just trying to figure out what is the best car seat for the future of needing three in the back. The Nautilus is WAY too big to have two of those and a SnugRide, right? How about the Frontier, a Nautilus and an infant seat? I am going to assume--no. I do realize that with the Radian I will have to eventually get a booster.
Does anyone have suggestions? This is my first post ever!
