Unless you need the 4WD or just hate minivans, I would recommend a miniivan over a Pilot for three kid families.moomommy said:I have 3 kids in car seats - we are thinking about getting a Pilot. Where would I put them? I have 1 kid in a Britax Roundabout, & 2 kids in boosters - 1 in a Graco Turbobooster & 1 in a Century Breverra high back booster. Thanks!
Okay, so our situations are IDENTICAL, moomommy! Mine are 5 mos, 4 and 7. Baby in a Britax Roundabout (cowmooflage!) They are all lined up across the 2nd row. Plenty of room, and there's no problem getting into the back seat if you need it. The graco turbo booster should slide easily out of the way when flipping the passenger side 2nd row back. Put your baby on the driver's side door. and the least protective seat in the middle. The roundabout is the safest seat, move it to the outer position. This way rear seat access in not blocked by that wide infant seat, and you can get the baby out easier.moomommy said:Thanks for the info. My kids are 1, 4, & 7, so the older 2 can buckle themselves in. I don't know if it would work to have all 3 across in the 2nd row or to put the oldest one in the back, or maybe the 2 oldest in the back. One reason to keep them all in the 2nd row would be then I could keep the 3rd row folded down. My DH is going to be the main driver of the vehicle and he tends to haul stuff back there. Right now there's just a lot of junk in the back of his Subaru wagon! Much of which I put there for him to take to Salvation Army LOL!! It sounds like the Pilot is a lot wider than the Subaru, right now there are 3 seats across in the back seat and it's extremely tight & hard to buckle the seatbelts on the boosters.
Sounds like my husband's reaction when my first Roundabout (Big Cats) arrived... "Was this supposed to be leopard print?" By the time our Cowmooflage came around, he'd gotten used to it.74PILOTMOM said:Cowmooflage! Man we have great taste Does your husband hate it too?

Yeah, that's what you call him when you say "Wait until your father gets home, so he can spank you!"mcardle said:DH... designated hitter? Those bats CAN take up a lot of room.
There were a couple names I can imagine my wife has thought of for me using the initials DH, only some of which are appropriate for an all ages board like this... and Dear Husband wasn't one of them.tracy said:

You can tell you're on a board full of men when they don't know DH stands for Dear Husband. At least it does on our chick boards.
I got a great deal on my Britax thanks to the internet ... I ordered it from a store in Ohio which was posted on a car seat forum. It's non-latch but I got it for $99 plus shipping. I also got a leopard print one for the other car for $129 online. Gotta love the internet!74PILOTMOM said:[Cowmooflage! Man we have great taste Does your husband hate it too?
