The job of a booster is to properly position the seatbelt on the child. The seatbelt restrains the child, just like it restrains...
So here's another question that I couldn't find the answer to while searching last night: Do the boosters (with the back) use the LATCH system? Or do they just 'sit there' on the seat? I read one review last night that made it sound like they are not secured by anything other than the regular seatbelt. : I can't imagine that's true . . .

As far as boosters go, I'd look at something with good SIP (side impact protection), like the Britax Parkway, Sunshine Kids Monterrey, and Recaro Vivo. Of those, the tallest is the Monterrey. Yes, her shoulders are still under the top straps. I was just looking at the Parkway but it does not convert to backless and I think I'm going to eventually want that. ...

My almost 6 year old dd is ready to move out of her Britax. She does not weigh 60 pounds and so we *can* use it longer, however, her legs are really long and today she sat in a friend's booster and was MUCH more comfortable. What are the best kinds for safety? I think I want to find a good one that has a back - we won't be taking the back off for a while I don't think. I found the Britax through recs from MDC mamas, so here I am again asking, what do you all...
I always used BI cinnamon but have not tried the fermented. Does it taste the same? Do you take the same amount?
This is a norm referenced test I believe and so yes, she's compared to other (mostly public schooled) kids in the nation. What were her percentiles? You can't evaluate giftedness on the basis of one test alone. Lots of other things are taken into consideration when assessing that. I wouldn't worry about challenging her more if she seems happy. It sounds like you're doing a fabulous job!
Wowee! That is incredible. There are sooo many wonderful things for us eh? One more thing to blog about . . .

And it's gluten and corn free! I think it was $8-9 for a ginormous tub. Seriously!? I had...
