    Re: Best boosters for sleeping

    DD's never fallen asleep in a booster. In fact, I can count on one hand, snoozing in her Regent.

    However, if it's any consolation, her best friend has nodded off several times in our Monterey. Quickest was within 5 minutes of getting on the road at 3pm on a sunny bright day. She was 7 1/2 at the time. Tucked her head back into the corner and was out like a light. No head bobble. DD was a bit freaked out since she has never any desire to sleep.

    Sorry, no picts. I was driving.

    That's the way my oldest DD sleeps in her Turbobooster. Its almost like "how is that even comfortable?" She slept like that for about an hour on our last road trip.

    Benjamin sleeps fine in the monterey, sorry no pics. I don't think he has slept in the pro booster but I suspect he would sleep fine in it.

    Re: Best boosters for sleeping

    She's home now and has an opinion.

    Her first choice is the monkey Oobr. (So not happening unless someone can give me a darn good reason to spend $300 on just a booster.)

    Her second choice is the Girls Rock Turbo booster.


    But I know she just likes the patterns on these best. I still want to get her the FR and let her use it harnessed since she gets floppy when she sleeps AND she can buckle herself in and out. I have to help her in a booster since her seat is right next to CJ's.

    Re: Best boosters for sleeping

    My 7 year old is a car sleeper. She's okay in her Turbo when she sleeps in it, but she's got such a skinny little build (and enough room to grow) that I think I'm getting her a Cybex X-Fix when we get a van and have room. She would LOVE being able to lean her head back when she gets sleepy!

    Re: Best boosters for sleeping

    Kate sleeps in her turbo sometimes. I actually think the new Boost air would be a great option for sleeping...the headwings, ridiculous as they might *look* really curve all the way around the head, and the child can lean their head against the nice cushy Air pillows...we've tried it in the store several times, and DD says she REALLY likes it and wants one.

    Re: Best boosters for sleeping

    We drove to Florida from NY and back and DD did not sleep for a single minute the entire way.

    But she has slept in a TB and an (old) PW and a (discontinued) Monarch.
