    Which booster would you choose???

    Michael is in a full-time booster now (If you seen my other thread about the car sickeness and hurting his "boy" parts).
    So, right now for boosters this is what I have:

    Graco HBB(2 of them)-one stays at grandparents
    Fisher price Safe voyage booster
    (and 2 low backs-but he doesn't use those).

    He sits beautiful in them(shocking, cuz 2 months ago he was horrible in them).
    Anyways... he is normally in the 3rd row center.....and boy does he hate and I hate the tipping....

    He falls asleep alot in the van(but, usually when he falls asleep he is in the captains chair though-since daycare kids aren't with us).

    So....what booster would you feel more comfortable with your child in out of these 2 seats? Buying another booster right now is out of the question, since hubbies job is guaranteed after November....(I mean he has a job, but he is a union iron worker and the job he is on is ending the end of this month(mabey) and who knows what jobs are out there, he might go straight to another one or have to wait).

    He is 51 pounds and about 50 inches tall(6 years old this week) (where does time go)?

    I do drive a 2007 Kia Sedona with side airbags......(base model)
    And the other car he would drive in is a Ford Escape(2008) with his grandparents-about 1-2 times a month.

    I would use the TB. Is has better side impact protection and it just feels more substantial than the other.

    I agree, and locking the shoulder belt should help with the tipping.
