I'm thinking forward, trying to find the best seats that will both fit 3 across and serve us as long as possible.
We have an 05 Corolla. My kids will be weeks away from 6.5, and close to 4 when the new baby comes in August.
I've been thinking about a narrow high back booster (turbobooster?), FF radian, and either a RF radian or coccoro for the baby.
The radian seems like an economical choice for the baby, being that it will last nearly forever, while it seems that the coccoro won't last much past age 2. But the coccoro would probably fit better in the car RF and might even be a better fit for the infant, right? With our current Evenflo triumph advance RF, I occasionally find that someone else has sat in the passenger seat and adjusted it back (not supposed to touch). So even though I usually sit there, or it's empty, I see how this could be an issue. Is there a safety issue for the adult in front being so close to the airbag if the radian causes the front seat to in the most forward position?
Let's suppose we go with the coccoro. What are my options when it's outgrown? I still need a seat that can fit 3 across, and would prefer that one is RF. Do I move a just turned 6 yo to a booster and use the radian RF with the angle adjuster? Any other ideas?
Even if we have a bigger car by then, someone will need a new seat. Would you get a booster for the just turned 6 yo, or a new convertible for the baby?
