One of the most difficult tasks is to keep three of them entertained during our road trips. The youngest one adores toys with sounds (refer to this page), while her siblings love watching cartoons. Listening to some new music or even playing an audiobook is also quite a useful idea.
Working toward this end, does anyone know of any stores that will let you try test fitting a carseat into your car prior to purchase? I’m in the market for a baby seat for my Ascent but hate the idea of not seeing it installed first. As soon as we get one we’re putting a high back booster in the 3rd row for the next youngest. Babies r Us was awesome for this back in the day; I’ve heard Target will throw the seat away if you buy then return.
Here is the inside of our 8 seat. We've gone 2yo in the back with 4yo and infant in the middle row. Still get 2/3 cargo space, easy enough to load, and we can flip up the third 2nd row seat for Grammy in a pinch.
