    Random booster questions

    Which ones have LATCH? Do you think it i safer to have a booster seat with LATCH? Is the SGL safer because of the SG thing, or does that not really matter?

    Re: Random booster questions

    Cybex, Parkway SGL, Monterey, Oobr....I think thats it with latch. The SG strap on the Parkway helps to reduce the chance of a smaller child submarining under the seat belt in the event of a crash. Yes, I think that it could make a difference. At the same time, I removed our SG strap for my 8y/o because she hates it and at her age & weight I don't see the need for it anyway. My dd2 cannot ride in the Parkway because she is not yet 40lbs.

    Re: Random booster questions

    Yes, I tried the Cybex and didn't like it. My kids felt like they were being launched out of the seat and hated it. I really wanted to like it but oh well. And this was just my experience, many other love it. I think its a nice booster, but wasn't there a really scary crash test video of it

    I can't find that video, but really it is a good booster and worth considering.
    Here is my dd2 in the Cybex and you can how it provides a great fit.

    Re: Random booster questions

    That is the best way to do it. A booster is going to fit your child and vehicle differently and finding the right combination is key. Have a good time and be sure to take lots of pics for us
