    Booster Recommendation

    My DD is 8 and seems too big for her Vivo
    She is around 4'2 and 55 pounds. Her legs hang over the Vivo and it looks like she has no leg support.
    DH wanted to put her in a Low back booster but we do not have a headrest where she is sitting.
    Do you have any other booster suggestions?
    Also, how long do kids normally fit in an EFTA? Just wondering if it will get my 3.5 year old to booster age. She is 39 inches and 33 pounds. Thanks!

    My 8yo looks like she is about to rocket out of a Vivo. Her legs are just so long it is silly looking. My DD's regular rides are an Oobr and a Frontier in booster mode. What is your budget for a booster?

    How far does your 3.5 yo have to go until she hits the top harness position?

    Re: Booster Recommendation

    My budget is less than 100 if possible. She'll have a headrest when we get back to the US in 1 year and I am thinking she will almost ready to be in a LBB.
    I guess I am looking for something with a deeper seat.
    I'll have to check how much room the 3.5 year old has in the EFTA since there are no harness slots to count.
