When did you buy an SUV?  Before first baby? After 2nd baby? After kids were "older?"  Over a year ago, we bought an SUV, but now we are thinking we should have gotten something different that costs less. But how could we go back to an sedan at this point?

It's so much easier to take them in and out of car seats! We bought a Ford Flex before no.1, it fits three car seats in the middle row! At least if two are narrow. We love it, and it's still pretty cool  : )

We bought used at Offlease Only and felt like we got a good deal

lol! The coolness sacrifice!

I had my 3rd and we had an SUV, but then (surprise!) found out I was pregnant with my 4th and I dropped my last shred of coolness and bought the mini-van. But now I'm hooked, I love my mini-van so much!

Immediately if you live in a snowy state. It just feels safer with the kids in the car and think you will grow into it eventually.

Never, I had three kids and three car seats in the back of my Impala. We drove across the country in that car many times, it was cozy but we saved so much money on gas compared to an SUV. I'll probably get an SUV once my kids all move out.

After baby number 2, we needed it! If you plan on having more kids it is a good idea, especially if you ever do road trips. You want everyone to be comfortable and safe with room for all the gear that comes with kids.

Right? I have never wanted a SUV in my life. I have a child and all the things they come with has me looking up models and gas mileage. I am thinking right before baby #2. My car is great and almost paid off so I'm going to use it for awhile.

I had a convertible when I was pregnant. I thought it would be ok when my baby was born-until I tried to install a car seat! After that I took the plunge and bought something bigger-you just have to!

My husband bought me a Honda Pilot after we had our second baby. It was my dream car and I'm in LOVE with it! The space is perfect, it drives really nice, safe car, all of the boxes are checked and it is affordable too!

We might buy an SUV here soon, we just married and realize that it could benefit our current travels and to see family.  It just seems like it would be more convinient. BUT, can also help for future with kids.

I wanted something with sliding doors as soon as i got pregnant with my first but that didnt happen.  I got a SUV after I had my second

Minivans are where it's at!

More than 2 kids you need an SUV 😂🤣😂

We got ours when our first born was almost 2 years old.  We only have 1, and we felt like we needed more space from the previous car, however we travel by car a lot and wanted some adventure so opted for the Toyota Highlander.

I had every intention of being an SUV mom (volvo xc90 or range rover to be specific) but alas I'm a simple Chrysler minivan mommy. Glad for all the extra room. Still use the old sedan for quick errands when I'm by myself and it feels so zippy!

We have a minivan and its a necessity especially on road trips. I suppose one day, way in the future, we may all be able to squeeze into a sedan again. If its a really roomy sedan and if we all stay lean...shrugs --- 3 kids what can I say??

We bought ours after we found out we were expecting again. I will never drive a car again, I love it haha.

With 3 kids we had to go get an SUV. We didn't even have room to take their friends with us and it always sucks to leave someone behind

We have a mini-van as well, it runs amazing and had it for over 6 years.  Worth the money, but my husband traded his truck in for a sedan, and thats nice too if you have only 1 or 2 kiddos with you!

So we had a jeep with two kids, bought a pilot when we had three.  I legit hated it, so then I went and bought a mini-van more expensive but 100 % worth the money.  I will tell you, I can't go back to a sedan even after they grow up lol
