    booster recommendation 8YO and 4.5YO

    my 8YO rides in high-back Turbo-booster. She's skinny, and the booster fits her perfectly. I'd like to get for her a low-back for occasional car pools in town. The Turbo low-back is OK, but in 3 across the arm rests in some cars make buckling hard, so if I could find something narrower, it would be great.

    My 4.5 year old rides full time in a Radian. He's much wider than his sister, weighs at least 42 pounds. He rode in a Turbo booster twice for a 5 minute ride, and did pretty well. For him I'd like to have soon a hbb for booster training (he's almost at the top slots in the Radian)
    This one too needs to be narrow. Not sure if the Turbo booster is best for him, it's the only one we've tried.

    thanks!

    Hi!

    What is the other seat in the car, weight of the 4.5 year old and weight of the 3rd child?

    ETA: what car are we talking about as well?

    Re: booster recommendation 8YO and 4.5YO

    we have a Honda CRV 2004, Radian in the middle and Turbobooster on the driver side. Passenger side we use backless Turbo or Parkway (the old model) with variable sizes of 7-8 year-olds :-)

    My 4.5 year old weighs at least 42 pounds.

    My daughter rides occasionally with different friends, in various cars, which is why I need a narrow booster just to be sure it will fit even in smaller cars with 3 across .
