Reccomendation for tall 6yo
A friend of mine just asked me a question regarding her son, and since we aren't quite to the booster stage yet, I though I would ask for your opinions. He is six, tall for his age, & needs a new seat. I was wondering if I should just get him a booster or a bigger car seat? I thought I would ask you! Any input would be helpful!
They also do have a 4 yo and a 3.5 mo old, so I'm guessing at some point they will need a newer seat for the baby. I know that there are some pretty high combo seats, but don't know offhand what all they are (I only know convertibles). (Oh, I'm not sure how much he weighs, but he's always been a bigger kid who looks a lot older than his age). Thanks!

What is he in now? I would just get him a high back booster, unless he has special needs.

I'm not sure what he is in now. He has no special needs, so I was thinking a HBB would be fine also unless she wanted something that she could later pass down. Thanks!

Any suggestions for a HBB?

I really like my Graco Turbo booster, and they are cheap, cute, and widely available. If she wants something 'nicer', check out the Recaro Probooster, Britax Parkway, Sunshine Kids Monterey, and the Cybex X-Fix. There are loads of different boosters, but those are my personal favorites :)

My son is 5.5 and we are researching boosters for him now. He is a skinny thing though so we need cushion on the back b/c his back hurts on his Nautilus. We went today and tried the Monterey, Parkway, Cybex and Probooster. It is between the Monterey and Probooster as of now.
