    Travel booster

    We are flying to Florida in a month. My youngest 3 kids are all in boosters. The older boys are in LBB and the youngest kiddo is in a HBB. The kids will be 10, 10 and 8 at the time of travel. We will be renting a Nissan Armada (or "comparable") and driving from Miami to Key West. I'm not worried about the bigger twin. His seat is an Incognito and should easily fit in a suitcase. It's the other 2 I'm worried about. The smaller twin isn't big enough for an Incognito at just barely 50lbs....and the 8yr old is a major car sleeper, so I worry about her in a LBB. She is also not big enough for an Incognito. She is approximately 50lbs as well.

    Any suggestions? Is the BubbleBum the really only viable seat??

    Harmony youth booster is pretty small and would work for both your younger kids.

    Or- what seat does the youngest use at home? If it comes apart, you could pack the back in your luggage and bring the base onto the plane with you. With an incognito and harmony youth/bubblebum, I would think most highback boosters would work in a 3 across in that size vehicle.

    That is a really good idea. I hadn't thought about carrying on the boosters, I was trying to figure out how to pack them all! Youngest uses a Parkway, so yes, it comes apart. The rental car is 7 passenger, so no worry about 3 across. There will be 6 of us anyways. The twins will be in the back row, with my adult son and youngest daughter in the 2nd row.
