Hi all, I have a 4 year old in a forward facing Britax Frontier, and a 1 year old in a rear facing Britax Marathon. Anyone know if I could squeeze an infant seat in between those two, and if so, which car seat would be best? I'd like to keep them all in the same row, but if I need to I can move the 4 year old to the third row seat. Thanks!!
The frontier is a beast, so I doubt it. That being said, if you're willing to move the 4yo, pick your infant seat and try it out, worst case move your 4yo. If you really want 3 in a row, you probably will need to move the 4yo to a narrower seat.
That said, if you can get to a Buy Buy Baby or Babies R Us you can try seats out and see if they puzzle together. The Marathon rear-facing is fairly high, so it might gain you some space if it could puzzle over a seat. If you're open to skipping an infant seat, the Combi Coccoro is only 15" wide. You can add the widths and compare to the width of your car, but that doesn't *really* work since some seats puzzle together well and others don't.
Here is the measurement database for info:
My sister has people go through the back of her pilot (her old one at least, she just got a 2014 and I'm not sure on the seats). She'd keep the smaller back seat folded and just have people go through the hatch because it was such a PITA dealing with the middle row carseats. I wouldn't have thought of it myself.
