    5-Steps or needs RightGuard??

    DD is newly 12yo, 58" tall, and approx 90lbs.

    She doesn't want to move out of her Recaro Performance Booster, but we need to pass it down to DS, plus she has about maxed out the height on the booster.

    She easily 5-steps in the 3rd row of SUVs and most vans. The last time we checked, she clearly did NOT 5-step in the 2nd row of SUVs or vans. Now it looks more iffy.

    So, I have some pics. Does she 5-step now?



    Here she is with the RightGuard booster.

    Which is better?

    We have no problem keeping her in a booster. Spending the $40 for the Rightguard is not an issue for us, so if she needs it, please tell us.
    DD actually prefers the fit with the Rightguard, but she hasn't ever been without a booster either, so take her preference with a grain of salt.

    TIA for your help!
