    HBB recommendations for a big kid

    Hi so looking for some suggestions on a booster for my son.
    He is almost 7 (Jan 29)
    Weighs 69 lbs
    Height is 51" standing
    28" sitting with back against wall to top of head
    18.5" bum to shoulder sitting with back against wall

    He is currently in a Nautilus as a high back booster but seems to be close to growing out of it. I don't feel like he is ready to be in a low back booster and he sometimes still falls asleep when on long drives on the highway.

    Is there a high back booster that would fit him better then the Nautilus?

    Thanks for any input.

    We have a sunshine kids Monterey which my 11.5 year old still fits in with the back. They are now made by Diono and I think the current version is the Cambria.

    Maybe a britax parkway? My older boys still fit. They are 9 and 10. But on the smaller side.
