Hi! Could I get some recommendations for a booster? I will be needing one soon for my DD who currently is in a Roundabout. She is my last child so I want a booster, not a convertible. Her torso is 14.5. I am not able to get a Recaro Young Sport because they are so expensive, but how about a Turbo Booster or Britax Parkway?...How are those 2 different? I'm sure there are other good ones out there too, but it's been so long since I've purchased one. I need one that is not huge, since there are 3 in the backseat of my car. I have a Pontiac Bonneville (hoping for a Town and County mini van soon) and also a extended cab, full size truck). Thanks so much!!!

The Britax Parkway (and Bodyguard) have side impact protection, where the Turbo Booster does not. The Turbo Booster is still well-rated, but I went for the side-impact protection. It might depend on where you plan to put the seat (side or middle).
My DD will be 6 on Friday, and she has been in the Bodyguard since she was 3 1/2 with no complaints.
The only thing that might be in issue is buckling 3 seats in the backseat of your car. They will probably fit fine, but reaching the seatbelts might be an issue. I've had an infant car seat and two boosters in the back of my Camry, and I have always had to buckle the kids in the boosters because it is just so difficult to reach the seatbelts!
I hope that helps!
