I'm trying to find a booster rated higher than 100 lbs.


My 7 yo is 97 lbs and about 4'3" (he's had a big growth spurt this summer so he could be a little taller).


I need to replace his current backless booster - does anyone have a good recommendation???

The Britax Parkway is rated to 120 lbs.

The Sunshine Kids Monterey booster is also rated to 120 lbs.


We have a highback Graco Turbobooster for our 7 year old who's the same height, but she's 'only' 71 lbs, and it only goes to 100 lbs.


I don't know of any other seats, but I'm sure someone else does.

The Harmony Olympian and Sunshine Kids Santa Fe both fit larger kids very well.  A backless booster can be an appropriate choice if there is head support (headrests or high seat backs) up to the child's ears in the vehicle.  A child that size is likely to be more comfortable in a backless.
