    So excited - new booster!

    We got a sapphire blue Recaro Performance booster yesterday!

    I finally gave in and grabbed one from target.com last week when they were on sale for $105 (and after red card and a $25 gift card for spending $150, it was a steal!!) I really wanted a latched booster for dd in my car- our old probooster works fantastic for her but she never remembers to buckle it in and it's right next to her baby brother.

    And guess what! It was manufactured on 3/23/16! One week old!

    But oh boy is it wide! It is much larger than our probooster and won't fit where I had the pro. I hope dd doesn't mind switching spots with her cousin...

    Re: So excited - new booster!

    Ha, I have these in my Civic. I have had them for a few years but I see they are so wide...that I honestly want to change them up b/c it's too hard to buckle and sometimes the belt stays loose and we have to pull.

    We've dealt with it.
    I just know my 9 YO 57" kid still fits in it though so obviously it'd be silly to get a new seat for him but we have the other kids.
    I don't know if Rodifix is just as tall or taller. I need them tall.
    We have a Diono one too for Nana's car (2 of those) but it's wide as well.

    Clek Fllo (3 YO, RF)/Graco 40 (15 months)
    + 2 Recaro Performance boosters in spare car

    It's pretty nice.

    DS9, the kid that asks daily when he can ditch his backless, tried to steal it from DD today. He was pissed that it was for her and not him.
