I realize you guys get car questions all the time, so I apologize in advance for asking another annoying car question ! DS will be 2 years 9 months when the twins arrive and we are trying to decide whether to get a bigger car. For carseats we'd like to use Chicco keyfit for the twins & Diono radianRxt for DS (he will be FF). We currently have a Kia sorento and it has tons of cargo space - ample for a double stroller. DS goes to preschool 5 mornings a week and needs to easily pop in and out of the car during carpool line (so the Diono would need to be on the side and the chiccos would be side by side). We are debating about getting a minivan or a large SUV with captains, but my issue is it seems DS would have to be in the 3rd row all by himself and it seems like a pain to strap him in and out of a 3rd row while he's still so young.
Those with 3u3 - did you choose a 2 row or 3 row vehicle ? How do you configure your carseats? If you have all the kids in one row does your 2/3 year old bother your babies ?
