Wide booster?

My 10yo no longer fits hipwise in our parkway or kidfit. The lap belt is too high on her in the incognito. The connext still works, but we need a second booster for her, and the connext is discontinued, right? Today we tried the harmony at walmart and the Cosco pronto but both of those were too small. Suggestions, please?

Interesting. Anyone know how the height of the Diono cambria compares to the height of the Chicco kidfit? I have vehicle support for the cambria, and don't need to do a 3-across. I'd like to keep kids 2 and 3 in a high back in our old car if I can.

No. Don't say that. I don't want to be tempted to buy another booster. Argh.

Thank you all for your help! Seriously!

I've never noticed my incognito lapbelt being too high, is it car dependent at all? Leah's been in them for a couple years in a couple cars with no problems, lapbelt on hips (not across lap, but on hips is good).
I was going to say cosco Stack it, but it's awfully hard...and hard to find... I think I added some foam to it to prevent utter rebellion :eek:

Thanks for the info, I will check the incognito fit again. It might have been the huge sweatshirt she was wearing. And last night I found my 2nd connext! Still smells like cat pee but oh well.

LOL! You know you're a carseat nerd when you literally have so many boosters that you lose one (or more). Sometimes I find them in random closets, usually forgotten.
Ugh, cat pee... maybe a short soak of the cover in baking soda will get that out?

I wouldn't be afraid to use nature's miracle or bac-out or some other natural enzyme cleaner on my own seat. A) because I've never noticed any wear or tear on any of my other fabrics after 10 years of nature's miracle on my not-potty-trained dog's messes :p and B)the LATCH straps only hold the weight of the seat, they aren't holding your child in place. If you have a sunny fall day, that might also help, just fresh air and sunshine can do wonders.

Thanks, I might try that. One reason it was put away so far was because all the airing in the world hadn't helped. It only smells when it's hot. So the car this summer was a no-go!
