... We have a 2008 Civic, and two kids in booster seats, and expecting another baby at the end of the year. We are short on funds at the moment BUT I feel the need to shell out on three seats at once. (Yikes.) My kids are almost 5 and 5.5, about average for their age I guess. They are in backless boosters since DH thought they were old enough - and they are pretty good about sitting up straight and not slouching etc - but I would prefer them to be in a high backed booster. And of course the baby needs a new seat. I don't need a travel stroller thingie; we don't really use strollers and just use baby carriers.
I need to figure out the most economical way to get three across where they all have the ability to buckle themselves. (Well, baby obviously excluded.) It's kind of hard to buckle themselves as it is because the seat belt thingies are always hiding under the boosters... but they're pretty good with it right now. I'm not sure how that would work out if they were back in high backs WITH the baby seat in the middle... How does that work? (They can even buckle more easily than I can crawl in there myself to do it for them anyway. We do a lot of short in-and-out trips around town so I'd be in there half the day buckling and unbuckling them if they can't do it for themselves.
