Looks good to me! The lap belt is touching her upper thighs and is over the bony area (pelvis) and not on her soft belly. The shoulder belt looks good too.

Thanks Erica! I was worried that the lap belt was too high. I am going to keep checking it over the week. Is there a high back booster you would recommend, with a good price? Thanks!

Graco Turbobooster. It fits most kids pretty well and is reasonably priced. You can take the back off, so it should be the last seat she'll need!

I like it lower, but it isn't unsafe where it is. If it were up higher, it wouldn't be safe. Brinlee fits in it similarly, and it is safe. I wouldn't have allowed her to ride like that if it weren't safe. I even had it checked out by CPSTs, who also agreed it was indeed safe.




I actually think it fits slightly better (lower) on your DD than mine. Mine doesn't use this as a booster anymore, she's in a Britax Parkway SGL.

The Graco Turbobooster is also a great choice.

I keep hearing that the Nauti isnt safe as a booster but these pics prove me otherwise. I think the Apex will also make a great booster...

Keep hearing that where? I don't think we've ever said that here, and car-seat.org agrees that it is a decent booster for most children. However, it could fit one child well and could fit another child horribly. It wouldn't be my choice for a full-time booster for my kids.

I have always loved the graco turbo booster. Your daughter is a doll I have no experience with the Nauti as a booster though
