    Canada Best high back booster for long legs? - Canada

    Looking to move our 4 year old (44", 41 lbs) into a high back booster. He is in a britax advocate right now but his baby sister needs it ASAP. He also does not fit well in the advocate, very long legs with knees out way past the edge of the seat (complains is uncomfortable), and although very slim he has broad shoulders that are already pressing into the sides of the seat a lot. Best option for him? Main vehicle is a VWJetta. He still sleeps on the car fairly frequently. Need help as few of the recommended seats on the site are readily available in stores to try where we live. Comfort and convenience more important than price.
    Secondary vehicle is a Honda CRV, will likely get a second seat for that vehicle. Ideally something a bit more lightweight for lugging through airports on trips but still easy to use and comfortable to sit in. We like the features on the britax advocate but it weighs a tonne!

    Are you open to keeping him harnessed? 4 is earlier than I'm comfortable recommending a booster, particularly for kids who sleep in the car.
