The shoulder belt doesn't adjust.I'd say it's acceptable, but would be better with a bit of a boost. I also think the way she has to squeeze in is the problem, since the lapbelt fit is only weird on the inboard side. Is the Britax overlapping the belt a bit? Does the shoulder belt adjust down?
That was the old set up. She was in the bubble bum in the center. She seems really slouchy in the center when she puts her feet on either side of the dividing hump there, though maybe using the BB had something to do with that. There is no center headrest but she still had support above her ears in the BB. The shoulder belt in the center is also comes out from the top of the seat back So the fit would probably be better. Hmmm. Maybe I will try that tomorrow and see. Thanks for the idea! I will be back with photos if I give it a try.What about putting her in the center?
I don't think you're being silly. DS was in a booster until he was 11. Would have kept him in it longer if he hadn't passed the five-step test around the same time. (Does she pass the REST of the five-step test?)If it was summer I would probably be more relaxed about it. But we are in the middle of snow and ice etc and I feel maybe a few more months would make it better. Maybe I'm being silly.
Yes, she does past the rest of the five step test in this car.I don't think you're being silly. DS was in a booster until he was 11. Would have kept him in it longer if he hadn't passed the five-step test around the same time. (Does she pass the REST of the five-step test?)
