    Narrowest booster? and booster expiry question (Monterey?)

    I need a booster to use temporarily for my 7 year old nephew. I have limited room, so I would like to find the narrowest booster possible. I also don't want to spend a bunch if I can help it. Out of the graco turbo booster, evenflo big kid, and SK monterey, which one is the narrowest? Or is there an even narrower seat? It will more than likely be beside a Frontier in a 3 across situation, if that makes a difference as to which one might fit.

    Also, how long to boosters have before they expire? If I am buying this seat now, I would like to keep it for my DS to use eventually (he is almost 5). Specifically the Montereys that are on sale right now at TJs - they are already a year old, would I be losing a lot of its life?

    Re: Narrowest booster? and booster expiry question (Monterey?)

    Monterey's have a six year life span, and they are certainly not a slim seat.

    The Turbo's are most likely the slimmest most in-expensive seat on the market. Just remeber to put the screws in the arm rest
