We recently discovered that we are having twins this spring(), and I need some help thinking through our carseat situation. In addition to the babies arriving this spring, we have a 4 year old DD who weights 41 lbs and is VERY tall for her age (43 or 44"). She'll turn 5 this summer.
We recently bought a used Honda Accord (you know, about a month before getting pregnant with twins), and while I'd love to trade up for a minivan, it's just not going to happen right now. To go with our Accord, we also bought a Britax Frontier SICT, thinking that it could go on one side, and the baby (we really were just planning on one baby!), could go on the other, in DD's old Marathon, which still has a couple years left on it.
Now we need to figure out to get all three of them across in the backseat, and sadly, it doesn't sound like the Marathon OR the Frontier are going to be part of that equation. Thoughts on how to make this work? What kind of seats do we need? Where does everyone go? Realistically, how long will DD stay harnessed in a Radian? Should I just plan on a booster for her once the babies are here? One other thing to add to the equation is that DD gets dropped off at school in the drop-off line every morning, so she'll somehow need to get in and out of the car.
Any thoughts welcome. Or a spare minivan if you've got one hanging around.:)
