View Full Version : Need Advice about BoosterCar Seat

05-07-2006, 11:45 PM
I have a 6 year old son who weighs close to 55 pounds. He has been using the Graco Turbo Booster. The downside is that when my child falls asleep in his TurboBooster, he falls sideways, over the armrest which will not be safe in an accident. Are there any Booster Seats out there that offer excellent protection while providing support for his head when he falls asleep?

The Britax Parkway is usually better at sleep support, and the Recaro Start is also quite good at sleep support. What also helps is pulling the shoulderbelt out and letting it retract tightly over your son (if your car does that?) so that it helps him stay upright, and teaching him to tip his head sideways like he's looking out the window, so that his forehead aims into the headrest and he's less likely to fall over/forward.

We've really had the best luck with the Parkway, though.
