My older son is 5.5, 45" (all of it in his torso) and 41lbs. He is current in a radian80 5pt carseat. My youngest son is 2, 37" tall (long torso as well), and 34lbs. He is in a britax roundabout, but I noticed today he will outgrow it soon as his ears are almost to the top of the back of the carseat. I have a scion xA, so it's a small car, so I can't have two giant carseats back there (which is why the radians fit so well). here are my questions:
1) technically my oldesst can move to a booster, but I feel he's safest in a 5pt. he doesn't really complain, but does love sitting in the booster when he's with my mom. should i keep him in the radian, or move to a high back booster?
2) what high back boosters do you recommend?
3) what kind of seat should I get for my youngest? he's a big kid, and while he fits comfortably in his brother's radian right now, will it be a good fit as he grows older? I was looking at the radian XT.
remember, I have a scion xA which is a smaller car so no two giant evenflow triumphs or graco nautiluses. thanks for the help!
