<p>I SAH, but I need to start bringing in some income. DH and I have discussed it, and it seems like childcare would be the most logical choice for me right now. The issue is that I have to be able to leave the house to drop DS1 off at preschool every morning, so I'd need to be able to fit another carseat in my car. It is a 2001 Honda Accord. Currently I have DS1 in a Graco Nautilus, and DS2 FF in a Britax Marathon. We also have a roundabout. I am open to buying new seats in order to make this work, since the alternative is buying a new car which seems silly when mine is paid for and perfectly fine. I don't have a child lined up yet, just trying to get a "business plan" in order to present to DH so we can figure things out. I'm trying to find out how much our start up cost would be if I were to take this route. So I'd love some ideas for seats for my boys as well as the possibility of needing a RF seat or another FF seat.</p>

<p>Looking at your dates your youngest isnt quite 2 yet, do you realize that rear facing is 500x safer than forward facing?</p>

<p>I have 3 across in my 01 Accord.  We have a nautilus, a graco safeseat (baby bucket) and a radian.  It is a super duper tight fit, but it works ok.  When ds3 is ready to move to a convertible we'll be buying another radian.</p>
