    Re: Shallow booster

    I'm not positive, but what is the age and weight of the child, and what vehicle is it going in? Normally we get asked for the deepest, widest, or narrowest booster. I don't know that I've seen the shallowest being asked for before. hehe

    Yes, this. Why do you need a shallow seat? Is the child short or are you trying to fit the booster on a shallow vehicle seat? (Most boosters do allow overhang if that helps)

    I'd probably saw the Vivo is the shallowest, but other seats have different contours that may let a child's legs bend even if they don't quite reach the edge of the seating area.

    Re: Shallow booster

    Do you mean low to the vehicle seat, or do you mean short from front to back?
