My 3rd child was just born and I've discovered fitting the seats for all my children into the car is a real problem.
My oldest child is using a booster, my middle child a car seat and the new baby is still in an infant carrier.
My car is a large compact (Citroen C3 Picasso), and the 3 seats only physically fit in the car if I use the seat belt (and not the ISOFIX/LATCH system) to secure the car seat - even then the 3 seats completely cover the entire car back seat and there's no way to get to the seat belt for the booster.
I've also tried with my parent's car that is a roomy family car (Hyundai I30 CW) and have the same problem.
We tried putting the baby carrier in the front seat but this didn't work because we need to also fit two adults in the car (and putting the 2nd adult in back between 2 seats isn't practical)
So, what's the standard solution for this problem, how can I get two adults and 3 children into the car safely, reasonably comfortably and legally?
Are there special narrow car seat models? I've seen seat belt extenders on the internet, are they safe? is there anything else I'm missing?
Let's assume I don't have the money to get a bigger car right now.
