Hi everyone,


We are expecting baby #3 in May.  I currently drive a 2008 Hyundai Tuscon.


DD is 40 pounds and 43 inches.  She will be 4 years and 8 months in May.  She is forward facing in a Britax Marathon.


DS is 30 pounds and approx 36 inches.  He will be 2 years and 8 months in May.  He is now rear facing in a Britax Marathon.


We have a combi shuttle infant cars eat.


I don't mind buying new cars eats to make this work.  Ideally though if I need to buy new, I would live a harness/booster for Dd so that I don't have to buy her another cars eat when she is ready for a booster.


Any ideas? Thanks!


Mama to DD1 2007, DS 2009, DD2 2012, What a Journey this parenting thing is...

Buying a combination seat for your daughter is probably not the best plan.    The Tucson is a tight car, and buckling in boosters in a tight 3-across is a royal PITA.   AND combination seats tend to be very, very bulky.  You would be better off buying a narrow harnessed seat now and then buying a very narrow booster when you're forced to. 


I'd grab two Radians for your older two, to be used forward and rear facing.
