    Default Car seats for playdates after school

    DS has started prep this year and has started to be invited to playdates after school. It's mainly been with one boy and he lives in walking distance from the school so nice and easy, the Mum walks them home from school and I go pick him up later.

    We don't live in walking distance from the school but would like to be able to offer playdates but I don't think I can fit 3 seats in my car. DS has a HiLiner which is nice and narrow but DD is still in a SnS Maxi Rider which is massive.

    I just don't think another hiliner will fit, can you still buy the cushion booster seats? Do I have any other safe alternatives (really not keen to put any child of that age in the front seat).

    My nephew is in the same position and I'm not sure where, but my sister got a cushion booster in one of the baby specialty shops. Perhaps google where near you might sell them?

    Kmart, big w and baby bunting still had the cushion ones a few months ago (the ones that are just the seat part with no sides)

    There seems to be some issue as to whether or not booster cushions should still be sold, Big W are out of stock (the store I went to and online) and the baby bunting I went to didn't have them either. On one of the government road websites it does say they soon won't be able to sell them in shops.

    Arghh.
