What is a good booster for sleeping?

My 6 yo doesn't usually nap, but now that school has started and she is exhausted, she has started taking cat naps in the car. Are any high back boosters "better" for sleeping in? She looks so uncomfortable in her Turbobooster! The last trip we took she didn't sleep in it at all even though she wanted to because she couldn't rest her head anywhere. She has even mentioned wanting a "regular" carseat just to be more comfy. But I don't think I want to do that- she is very responsible and sits straight in her booster and can buckle herself in (I double check it).

Re: What is a good booster for sleeping?

The Britax Parkway has nice deep wings that work well for naps. Any of the seats that offer "side impact protection" are probably going to be better than those that don't.

Re: What is a good booster for sleeping?

Thanks so much! Looks like I'll be ordering the Tiffany. I've been wanting another booster anyway so the TB can go stay in dh's car- I hate moving seats.

Re: What is a good booster for sleeping?

The other nice thing about the Parkway is that it's one of the easiest for a child to buckle; there are no armrests to get in the way.

Re: What is a good booster for sleeping?

I noticed that in the photo. Not sure if she'll miss those, but that would be great if it made it easier to buckle. She does fine if she's patient, but when she's in a hurry or tired she gets frustrated and I have to do it.
