    Good booster fit or no?

    I have read all the manual and all the tips for good booster fit and I think it fits great but I would love tech input as I am still new to this.

    Long story, need to use until Saturday, but he is doing BEAUTIFULLY. I haven't had to remind him to sit back once and he hasn't offered to get out of place yet. He is hoping right up into the van and sitting down ready to be buckled in. Though this is all happening a little to fast for me. Still wasn't expecting this level of maturity this quickly.

    Thanks

    He is and I didn't even say anything about new seat, he just sits and starts grinning. I can't get over how his knees are past the end of the seat. He is growing so big.

    The Vivo is wicked shallow, which is part of it.

    I think it is a good fit, but I am not a tech.
    He is just a cutie! The booster looks so comfy!

    Re: Good booster fit or no?

    I would be positively thrilled if half the booster'd kids I check fit that well ... sadly, my organization can't afford to keep most harnessed until they do, unless they have certain diagnoses (sigh)

    Yay for you guys!

    He might eventually want some more foot support -- my kid prefered an old rolled up comforter, but we've also used a laundry bag filled with packing bubbles or a styrofoam/cardboard box successfully

    I would have gone nuts with all the foot-stomping/bubble-popping if I tried that. I used a sleeping bag in a stuff sack for a foot prop. Worked out pretty well and solved my dilemma as to where to store the sleeping bags.
