Hi! I am looking for a booster for my DD. Space is tight as three sit in the backseat, so it can't be huge. She is my last child so I am looking for a booster, not a carseat. Her toro height is 22". She is currently in a Roundabout car which she is outgrowing and her other carseat she is too big for. She is slim, so that may be a consideration too. Thank you so much for any help you offer!!

I think you must be measuring her torso height wrong...the top slots of the Roundabout are only 15.5 inches, so she can't have a 22" torso height and still fit the RA. You should be measuring from her butt to her shoulders when she is seated.

What vehicle do you drive?

Is she mature enough to use a belt positioning booster properly at all times?

The Britax Parkway is pretty narrow (about 17 inches wide, narrower than the Roundabout) and doesn't have armrests, which is a plus when dealing with three seats across. Armrests make it difficult to buckle next to another carseat.

Oops, I measured her from butt to head while sitting. I guess her torso measurement is really 14.5. Thanks!
