    Question slim booster for big kid

    We recently purchased an Acadia which has two captain chair's for the 2nd row. We have a 6 yo and 9 yo. I wanted a slim booster for the 9 yo. who was measured 53 inches several months ago. I wanted the safety 1st incognito, but it is too wide for the captain's chair. I was investigating the bubblebum and mifold options, but those seem like they are more for occasional use, versus daily use. Please advise. I would also love a recommendation for a slim booster for the 6 yo. who was measured 44 inches last. We have the Graco Turboboosters, but they seem too wide for the captain's chairs. The chair style seems to have a narrower center with sides that are slightly raised for comfort (but don't do well with wide boosters).

    Thank you!!!

    Re: slim booster for big kid

    I cannot recommend the Mifold due to fit issues.

    The bubblebum is fine for daily use, but a 9 year old will likely find it too shallow to be comfortable.

    I'd actually look at the Diono Solana. It has a tapered shape and LATCH which might do well, and it's deep and good for older kids.

    For the 6 year old, maybe the Peg Perego Viaggio Flex 120? That's quite narrow on the bottom.
