    Default Three school age kids in small suv - options?

    Currently we have two boosters in the back seat of the car to carry a 5 & 7yo. I'm wondering what are the options for adding a third booster for another 7yo, just for occasional before and after school trips?

    Does anyone have three boosters in the back seat? Or use a booster in the front? We have an x-trail so it's not tiny but we can just about squeeze a slim adult into the middle of the back seat now, with the two boosters chairs. I don't think there's room for another booster (unless there's one designed for that space maybe? )

    I know the legal age for needing a booster is 7 but neither 7yo child is 145cm yet which is the recommended minimum size for travelling out of a booster.

    Any ideas on how we can safely carry another child?

    I can just get two 0-8 seats (one forward facing and one rear facing) plus a 6mth-8 seat in the rear of my xtrail.

    All three of mine are infa secure (sold at Pram Warehouse which also do online sales). Clipping up the seatbelt for the middle seat was difficult during installation. These seats are relatively tall but you can get the 6mth-8yrs one for around $189 http://www.pramwarehouse.com.au/prod...ster_Seat.html

    The problem is reaching around to plug in seats. If they were younger and going to be in boosters longer I would recommend this
