feeling weird about my car seat set up


New member
Okay so we now have two Dodge Grand Caravans one is a 2006 and one is a 1999. I drive the 99.

Kids are
Ambyr - 16
Gabby - 10
Cameron - 8
Magnus - 6

In the 2006
I have Gabby and Cameron both in High back boosters and Magnus is in the Nautilus harnessed. This is the main vehicle we use.

In the 1999
Gabby is in a highback, Cameron is in a backless, and Magnus is in the Radian. Is is wrong that my 10 year old is in the highback and my 8 year old is in a backless? The reason for it is I lack head support in my vehicle. My 10 year old still needs a seat but is too tall for a backless. I just feel wrong about it. Also buying another seat is not in the budget for now until I start working.

I have no issue with an 8 yr old in a backless booster if they can sit well. Have you tried to see if your 10 yr old passes the 5 step test? My 9 yr old is almost there and he is not a big kid.

Can I tell you I love the name MAGNUS!! Awesome!
