I have a little issue..

Luckily i have till july to solve this issue. I'm due in july with another baby, Which will give us three under three... I have a 07 (i believe) Jeep Commander. That had a third row with two seats back there... And the only way for get to the third row is to put down one of the middle seats (on either side) To get back there... Well we'll have my 8yr DSD with us till she goes back to school... And I need to figure out how to put the children in the car... I'll have a taller booster/carseat one for DD will be 2almost 3, A regular ff/rf carseat for DS how will be about 14mo, (and possibly ff since he's 7mo and 23lbs already) And then the bucket baby seat for the newborn...

And i have three seats in the middle and two in the third row.... Where is the safest location for every child to sit???


Also another more prevalent issue, I have DD on the passenger side and DS( rf) in the middle right now... But his seat always leans sideways... any ideas what i'm doing wrong?? No matter how tight i tighten it, it leans to the side.. Is it just my cheap walmart carseats?? I would love to get a Recaro, I was just drooling over them... But there's no way in heck i'd ever be able to afford it...


Please help, I could use all the advise you want to give.... thanks.

First, your 2-almost-3 year old, should not be in a booster. Your DD should still be in a harnessed car seat. That being said, she should be in the middle if she is the only forward facing child. Once your youngest starts walking he may level out with his weight. Ideally, he should be rear-facing to 35 pounds.

what seats do you have now and the sizes of you kids including your step daughter, she most likely still needs a booster seat

Okay wrong wording on my part.. it's a ff carseat with a 5 point harness, that can be converterted to a booster once she's tall enough to use a seatbelt with it...

Oh, ok! That's better. I wasn't trying to be harsh, though re-reading it, I can see how it may seem that way. Sorry!
