    LBB and HBB suggestions

    Im looking for seat suggestions for my 7.5yo. Shes been in a Frontier in booster mode in both of our cars for almost a year and rides in a LBB occasionally in my moms car. She does very well in both types of seat. Im wanting to pass her frontiers down to little sister, so Im looking for new seats for DD. Id like a HBB for my car (04 Saturn Ion) and a LBB for DHs car (08 Jeep Liberty.

    DD is 7.5yo, ~55lbs, and ~51.


    ETA: a HBB is needed in my car because there are no headrests in the back!

    Since there are no headrests, I'd look at the Evenflo Spectrum and Peg Perego Flex 120. They're both super tall and don't require a headrest. If you get the Evenflo, just have her buckle it in when she gets out.

    For the backless, a Cosco Rise, Harmony Youth Booster, Graco Turbobooster backless, Evenflo Amp/Big Kid backless are all fine.

    Im leaning towards the TurboBooster XL for the NBB. I had her sit in it and she liked it.

    Im leaning towards the high back version for my car. I think I read it can be used without vehicle head support.

    Well probably have 2 new cars in the next year, so the lack of a head rest is temporary and well switch to NBBs in both cars.
