Curretly we are using three. Erin will be 8 next month but is in a booster by law. Our law read 8 OR 80 lbs must be in a booster. Since she's no where near 80 lbs - she'll be out of it next month. Andrew just "graduated" to a booster without the 5 point harness. Shane is only three, so he is in a seat with a five point harness.

Hmm well Malayna and Nathalia are in the regular carseats, Alorah is in a high back booster and Thayer is in a regular booster. Xandria just turned 8 so she graduated out of them. It is funny though because Thayer is a pound bigger than her. She is 50 lbs and he is 51.

We were at 4, now down to 3 since my dd turned 9. I made her wait until 9 since she's really small for her age.

We do the same thing, it makes life so much easier! We only have one infant seat that goes back and forth, but both of our cars have two five-point car seats.

4, Brianne in a high-back booster (4), Colin in a 5 point harness seat (3) Kylie is a 5 point harness seat (2) and Bryson in an infant carrier still (5 months). Bryson will go to a rear-facing regular car seat soon b/c he's too heavy to lug around in a carrier anymore...as soon as he can sit in a cart at the store he's outta the carrier!

We have 7 carseats in the van, for my 7,6,5,4,2,1, and 5 month old.
We also have 2 in the car, so 9 in total. Obviously when we go together in the van we use 7.

Only one at the moment. My 5 year old is still in a full car seat, because he's very small for his age. We will be putting him into a convertible car seat/booster when this baby comes along

Well, the twins, obivously have carseats (6 months old)....so that's 2. Carsyn has one. Noah has one. Peyton has one....and Carter is old/big enough to not have a carseat OR booster seat. So, we have 5 right now....but soon, we will have 7 carseats (we've got twins on the way). We have a 10 seater Dodge Sprinter.

We have four carseats and two boosters! Whew! There's only one "empty" seat in the van without a safety seat (for me) and at 61 inches, I barely missed the requirement.
