One of the most common car seat questions I’m asked is, “Is there any way to get three car seats into one row in my backseat?” People are often surprised to find out that the answer is, “Yes, you probably can!”
Three-across is like a puzzle. The smaller the car, the trickier the puzzle becomes. In some cars, it may truly not be possible to safely seat three children in the back. In most cases, though, it’s just a matter of finding the right seats. Here are a few to check out if you need to fit three kids in car seats and you don’t drive a tank.*
Please note that the prices listed are the suggested retail prices. These car seats are often available for significantly less from various retailers, so be sure to shop around!
