Booster Recommendations

Nedra Ambassador
I need two different booster recommendations (can be the same seat or different).

1) What boosters are best for a smaller (40 lbs) 6.5 year old to buckle and unbuckle herself? Needs to be high back, but other than that can be booster-only, combination, 3-in-1, etc.

2) What booster is best for the 3rd row of a Kia Sedona? (I think it is a’s a 3 row Kia SUV....the one with only 2 seats in the 3rd row) No lower anchors or tether in that position so probably looking for a dedicated booster.

I’d say most highback boosters are fairly easy to buckle. My 7 year old does well in a Graco turbobooster lx and she fit well at 40lbs. The only booster that was somewhat tricky was the britax with the crotch buckle. That took a bit to figure out but all the kids eventually got there.

For the third row is there much room for head excursion? I might consider a backless if she can sit still. The harmony youth booster will probably fit her. My kids have gotten great belt fits with it.
