Anyone fit three car seats in the back?

We are expecting our third child in May and are looking for any parents who have been able to do it. It's hard to get an adult to sit in with the two seats we have now. If you have been able to configure this, what car seats do you have?

I have a 2010 terrain though, so no third row seating I really am not sure what to do if we can't fit three seats in there! Thanks

We only have one kid but planning on more. This is what we use http://us.diono.com/en/car-seats/radian-rxt and you can fit 3 nicely i think. It really just depends on what car seat you are using.

There is a picture on page 2-49 through 2-55 of your owner's manual on how to safely secure three child seats as long as they fit. I hope this helps.

I have a 2011 Terrain, 1 yr old and a 3. With the 1 yr old being rear facing and the size of the good seats, there is no way!

We tried. And failed. No way in heck can we fit three car seats back there. I cried like a pregnant emotional baby because that means we won't be able to keep our Terrain. Thanks to everyone that responded. Happy New Year!

There are some car seats that are narrow so you can fit 3 seats in the back. An example is the Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat. Its width is about 17 inches.

They just barely fit in my Traverse..... and its obviously wider than the Nox.
