narrow HBB suggestions for center of 2010 Subaru forrester


New member
I have been out of the loop for awhile on "new" seats and actually stuck with what we had for 2 years :p I need a booster for YDD that will fit center in a forester. The radian was the only harnessed seat that was narrow enough so I would like something not too much bigger as ODD still needs to have a HBB outboard. It has to be center as she has been blessed with horrible car sickness if she does not have a straight shot out the windshield. :(

Eee. Narrow.
Umm. I think the radians are 16-17" at the thigh. And I think Graco TurboBooster and Evenflo Big Kid are both in that range. But having room to buckle too... idk. Any way you can try before you buy?

I like the harmony folding travel booster. Its wider at the shoulder torso area but narrow at the bottom so it plays nicer than some others for buckleing.

I have to go see what BRU has this weekend. Right now I have an SGL, a cybex and a TB. The cybex and the TB did not play well together. The SGL is wider than both of those so that is staying in the van with YDDs frontier. I may have to buy two new ones, both narrow to make it work. The middle seat in this car makes me crazy!!! I think our Walmart might have the harmony. Worse case, I can order it and return to walmart I believe.

Harmony Dreamtime (Target, Walmart), I'm thinking, might work, too. Safety 1st boost Air might also work, it's very narrow at the belt path.
BRU has Amps and Turbos and Affixes (Turbo size and shape base and armrests) and *Maybe* a Parkway, if it's a fancy enough store, so don't expect much :/.
