    Re: Shallow Harness Booster

    Hi! Sorry, it's been a very busy week for me.

    So, there aren't many boosters that are going to fit there with no overhang.

    Most harnessed seats allow up to 20% (1/5) of the seat to hang over. Since your daughter is small enough, and an age when it's appropriate, I think I would lean toward trying for a harnessed seat if you want her in that center seat. Do you have a budget?

    Thank you! No apologies!!! I’ve been super busy too.
    We’re definitely thinking a 5 pt. harnessed seat. The one she has now fits great there but expiring. Was hoping that I could purchase a combination seat (if I’m using the correct terms.... harnessed to high back booster).
    We’re definitely not on an unlimited budget but if the weight and height last for awhile and it doesn’t expire right away, I’d be able to invest in it. thanks again!!

    Ok. Some to look at might be the Evenflo Maestro, Graco Transitions/Wayz, Harmony Defender, or even perhaps the larger Britax Grow With You; it might still fit 80% on. MAYBE even the Evenflo SureRide (which is harnessed only but taller than most combination seats, and at a budget price point.)

    I'd advise buying from somewhere with easy returns in case you need to try again. Feel free to come back for more feedback or help if needed!

    I'd try the Evenflo Maestro first. It's easy to install. The Harmony is great, but buy may not be as easy to install.
