ProSport in booster mode

Anyone using theirs as a booster? I seriously love this seat, but I'm not thrilled with booster mode.

This was DD1 in it when we first got it--she must have been almost 6, 44" and 37 lbs



highest setting


and then DD2 today (5, 42", 31lb)




the belt bunches in the belt path and is hard to get it to lay flat. One setting on the headrest is too low; the next is super high.

I don't like how far out the shoulderbelt is on her shoulder... I've seen it fit other kids great, but I don't think it's a good one for her.... she looks very narrow in the shoulders.

I'd probably go probooster (since she looks leggy, I don't know about the vivo for her)

It actually fit my DD great as a booster, the lap belt didn't bunch up and it laid flat across her legs.

I think the shoulder belt is bad on her too. Your kids are narrow! :)

It fits both my 8 year old, 49" and my 5 year old, 41" really well in booster mode. It's normally the 5 year olds in harness mode. They can't buckle it either when it's in booster mode. Does the height on your seat belt adjust? It seems to come in very high up.

Which kiddo actually uses the seat? Were you just trying things for fun with the 31 lb'r or is she using it as a booster?

The belt fit is good on my kids, but it's SO wide, I don't like it. Plus, there's no way my kids can buckle themselves in it. It's a FF only seat for us.

My oldest uses it in daddy's car in booster mode since she's outgrown the harness. I just put it back in my car for DD2; she rode in it in booster mode once but I put the straps back in.

She can't buckle anyway, since it's so tight back there. She can buckle in the other vehicle. The seatbelts are adjusted all the way down.
