I am expecting twins and have a toddler. We have a safe n sound compaq and were planning on getting two more.
We have been thinking though about getting two isofix seats instead (britax slimline ahr as they look narrow enough).
Does anyone know if it's possible to fit three seats in general if you are using two isofix seats?
I have read things suggesting only two seats of any type can typically fit if both use Isofix

Yep as ISOFIX usually sits more towards the middle of the seat, it makes it harder to fit a third unless you car has 3x ISOFIX points (Prius V, Citroen Picasso, Peugeot 308 SW and 5008 have this).
You may be able to squeeze it as the ISOFIX here are flexible belts, but that would be done by offcentre installation of the seat.

Thanks so much for your reply.
And do you know what the situation is about anchor points- do you need a separate one for each seat? Would it be unsafe to attach two seats to the one anchor point?

Anchor points: one child seat to each anchor point, you can't put 2 seats on 1 point. If a child seat has a tether it must be used.

Yep one seat per anchor points top tether and lower anchorage points.
