    Fit check- 5 steps?

    How's she look without the booster? She's 5'3" and 82 pounds and getting too tall to fit boosters, even her incognito. Plus, we're flying this week and, although I'm all for car safety and much more conservative about this than anyone I know, even I'm feeling ridiculous bringing a booster for her.

    I can't see the legs in this pic so I can't say if she passes.

    This belt fit is great.

    Awesome!

    Sorry, I don't think I have one that shows the legs, but are you talking about the steps of knees bending naturally at end of seat and feet on floor? I can say with certainty she's passed those steps for a while.

    Anyone had a kid who was nervous about losing the booster and what did you do? I've told her she's safe and that I would not let her ride if she wasn't, but she doesn't do well with change.

    I explain the purpose of a booster is only to make the belt fit properly on their strong bones (not their squishy guts) and show them that the belt fits on those strong bones without it now.
