Installing three car seats in one row, also known as three across, is one of the biggest challenges a growing family can face when it comes to car seats. The words “three across” might send fear down the spine of any caregiver or CPST, but they don’t have to!
We were excited to see a new seat arrive that keeps some of the greatest features of the original Nautilus, improves on its quirks, and rivals the Harmony Defender as the narrowest recommended combination seat on the market. Meet the Graco Tranzitions!
Do Britax ClickTight series Convertible car seats, such as the Britax ClickTight Advocate, Britax ClickTight Boulevard, or Britax ClickTight Marathon fit next to each other?
Why do children keep growing? I’m guessingso I cankeep buying seats. Our newest addition is the Cosco Pronto. With the seat belt geometry of our van, my 10-year-old needs a high back booster still in the third row. He was pushing the height limit of his other boosters so needed something tall and yet affordable.
The Harmony Dreamtime, one of Harmony’s multiple belt positioning options, serves a niche market in that is one of the few high back boosters still available that may be an acceptable option in a three across, due to its narrow lines and plumb sides. While it doesn’t have the bells and whistles of many of the market’s more showy options, it is affordable, and provides an excellent belt fit in high back and backless mode, and as such, does what it is needed to do.
Let’s be honest, all day at a dealership trying car seats in all the vehicles would be a dream come true. Ain’t nobody got time and well, the dealership wants to sell those cars without us in them. So, we are just going to make do with a 2007 Chrysler Town and Country and a 2012 Dodge Journey. My CSFTL colleague, Jess, and I both have three kids, in seats, in one row. This is our reality and we know it’s many other’s reality as well for many reasons.
Ready for a backless booster for your not so little Little or maybe you need to have spare boosters on hand for friends or when your child travels with others? The price of the Harmony Youth booster and compact size make it a great option for many reasons. Let’s check it out!
