Okay so here are our stats:
Vehicle- 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan
DD age 6 1/2 years, average height, long torso, 46 lbs. - Britax Regent
DS1 age 4 1/2 years, average height, somewhat long torso, 39lbs. - Britax Boulevard
DS2 age 2 1/2 years, short but 30 lbs - Britax Boulevard
DS3 age 10 months, 90th percentile height, 17.5 lbs - Graco Safeseat
The 4yo is on the max harness height because of his somewhat long torso and the 6yo seems ready for a high back booster instead of a harness. I would just pass along the Regent to the 4yo, but it is a floral girly print and frankly that seat is giant. I would like to pass along the 4yo's Boulevard to the baby (RFing of course) so both the little guys would be in the Boulevards. This means the older 2 need new seats and I am wondering if putting them both in high back boosters would be okay? The 4 1/2 yo seems mature enough for it or I wouldn't consider it.
So if this is okay to put them in boosters, I would love suggestions. I would really love something that is not so giant like the Regent, but with a tall height (because of long torsos) that will last until they are out of seats. Are there any that might fit 3 across ( with a narrow convertible as the 3rd) in case we decide to ever need to put 3 kids in the back row? I don't know if we will have any more kids, but if we did, replacing the van would not be an option. It would be nice to possibly have the option to put the older 3 in the back row to have room for another passenger in the middle row ( one of the grandmas, a friend, etc). That would assume we eventually replaced ds2's boulevard with something like a Radian maybe? It would be down the road if/ when the 2 yo got a different seat, but it seems like it would be smart to buy the two older kids seats that would work for that idea if we ever needed it.
Thanks for any help!
