I recently found out I’m pregnant with twins and have a 20 month old currently who is rear-facing, and will be for as long as possible. I have a Subaru Forester and am stressing about fitting three car seats in the back seat. Is it possible to fit two infant seats and a rear-facing (or forward facing if necessary since she will be 2.5 when babies are born). Where can I go for help? I can’t seem to find the answers through internet searches.
It unfortunately won’t be possible to get 3 rear-facing seats in the Forester. You can put a forward-facing Diono Radian in the center (use the seat belt + top tether) and 2 Cybex Aton car seats on the sides.
“Since 90% of all car seats aren’t used properly, don’t assume you’re doing it right; get the installation checked by someone trained.” Can’t agree more on this one! Baby car seats are legally required in many countries, including the United States, to safely transport children up to the age of 2 or more years in cars and other vehicles. However, we forget that it’s a necessity to get the installation checked by someone professional.
I’m curious as to why you recommend the graco Classic Connect 35 over the Graco Click Connect 35? Th both state that they have passed the same front and side crash tests. Secondly, your review is spot on – I had the same concerns as you when reading their reviews and was dissapointed with their obvious inconsistency.
The Click Connect does not typically have a lock-off on the base, and none of the Click Connects feature a European routing path for the carrier without the base. The 35 Classic Connect has a very easy to use lock-off on the base, and a European routing path for the carrier without the base.
Also, there’s another site (http://thecarseatlady.com/) that has the exact same content… is this you as well? Thanks!
@Sarah – yes, this is us as well. We recently redid our website and incorporated our blog into it (so we are no longer using thecarseatlady.wordpress.com)
Is there a work around that you know of to use the Cybex 2 with the BOB stroller?
