I have 3 car seats across the back (Volvo XC60 so very tight). DD1 has pretty much outgrown her evolve and I'm looking at going to a booster seat. How do those with 3 car seats in the back have them reach the buckle?

I have an xc90 (not sure if they are wider). And will have 3 across shortly. I have my eldest in a maxi guard so he can stay harnessed so I don't have to worry about the buckle issue as he will be the middle.

My daughter is about to turn 5 but is very large (over 35kg) and tall. I have a couple of cms left in the evolve straps but she can loosen it herself and often does even though she knows she's not meant too. So I think she would now be safer in a big girls seat belt.

My 5yo is in a slimline safety 1st custodian plus. She still uses the harness,because of the issue of the seat belt buckle.

Our solution was a 7 seater car ;-)
Sometimes we do need to put all 3 in the middle row though and it just means we have to help with the belts as they can't reach themselves. Basically pull the seat out a bit towards the car door, buckle up and then push the seat back in and make sure the slack in the belt is taken up.

I can't afford a new 7 seater car, though I would love one. I will try and pull the car seat out a bit as suggested. Thank you.

Seat belt extenders is what we used when we had 3 carseats across the back and one was a booster.
