    booster recommendation?

    My oldest is 6, and we're just now looking into boosters, so I'm not in the loop on what's worth the money, which extra features are handy vs. hype, etc. So I'm looking for recommendations for our oldest, and five year old also, for once the oldest gets the hang of it and we move onto him.

    Very slender six year old girl. 35lbs, 44inches
    Large five year old boy. 50lbs 45 inches

    Narrow seats would be best, as being able to use three across is preferred. They'd be going into an 09 Suburban so LATCH is available, but not in the positions I'm planning to use them in So it isn't a must. I do like seats with side impact padding.
    With their ages I am looking for highback boosters.

    Thanks in advance!

    Bumping your post for some US attention (boosters don't start in Canada until 40lbs so I have no suggestions but someone will!)

    I would recommend looking at the Graco TurboBooster, Harmony DreamTime and the Evenflo Big Kid AMP. The TB isn't as three-across friendly as the others, though.
