carseat questions *new question in post # 13

I asked below about 3 across in an 03 crv. DD is almost 4, about 34 lbs, and is RFing in a Graco MyRide. DS is 20 months, about 24 lbs, and is RFing in a True Fit Premier. DD will be 4 1/2 years old when baby #3 is born and DS will be 2 1/2 years old.

We need a second car anyways and were looking into getting an older accord, but are now looking into a 2000 or 2001 honda odyssey.

I'm guessing the true fit and myride will fit just fine in an odyssey? Who would you get the third/new carseat for? And what carseat would you get? I'm thinking DD will be in the third row (FFing?). Is that the best placement?

Thanks so much

Re: carseat questions

I would get a new combination seat for the oldest that is FF only and then turns to a booster. Just check and make sure where all the FF top tethers are in the new vehicle. Good job on rear facing so long as well.

Search for "combination seats" on this page:

The Frontier and SecureKid 400 seem to be really popular on the car-seat.org forums!

Re: carseat questions

I agree- get a combo for the oldest and pass the MyRide down (I LOVE the MR for newbies, BTW). For a combo, look at the Britax Frontier, Pennacle 90, Recaro ProSport or Performance Sport, Graco Nautilus or Argos, Evenflo SecureKid, and Harmony Defender. I have a ProSport and a Nautilus that I love.

Re: carseat questions

Are the above choices (fronteir, pennacle 90, recaro prosport or performance sport, nautilus of argos, securekid, and harmony defender) better options than a radian?

If you will have the space (i.e. won't need a tight 3-across), then yes. The Radian is pretty much useless as a booster because most kids will have outgrown it by height in that mode by the time they hit the minimum weight to use it (50lbs), so forget it does that. The others have taller top slots, and do make good boosters, so will last longer both harnessed and can be used after.

Re: carseat questions

If you're looking for a forward facing/booster seat I'm not sure if I would invest in a Radian. If you're thinking of using the Radian to keep one of the kiddos rear facing longer then it sounds like a good idea, that is its real strength IMO. For example you could use the Radian RFing for your 4 yo and pass down the MyRide to the newbie. Then when you want to turn your DD you can pass the Radian down the line to DS again.

If you want to put your DD forward facing anyway then I'd probably go for a different seat rather than the Radian.
