    Default Booster seats that recline?

    I need to get 3yo DD a new car seat (for her fathers car) but I really don't want to replace it because it reclines. It's the only car seat she sleeps in. She doesn't sleep in the one in my car because it's so upright.

    Are there any booster seats out there that recline?

    I've got a hipod senator and it has a flip out wedge to recline it.

    At 3 years old your daughter legally still needs to be in an inbuilt harness. You'll have to look at convertible boosters - most of which recline. The infa comfi grange and maxi rider easy adjust are both good seats.

    Thanks mummies why do you hate it?

    Sorry to confuse anyone I don't know what to call the car seats lol.

    The one in her dad's car is a 0-18kg one, used to be rear ward facing & is now forward facing but DD is 20kg & her head comes half way over the head rest of the seat/shoulders to high, it's mainly her length that makes me think she's far too big for this seat.

    The one in my car is a forward facing 18-28kg one (I think, don't quote me) it has a 5 point harness but converts to a lap/chest strap when she's old enough/big enough. But it's SO upright (vertical) & uncomfortable she complains about it & I never take it on long drives etc.

    They're both safe'n'sound target brand.

    Ideally I'd like 2 new seats, comfy & soft & slightly reclined.

    It doesnt have much support for if they fall asleep, DS2's head flops to the side, and both my boys have said they dont find it very comfortable.

    I have a hipod senator too. I use it in DH's ute where the back seats are bolt upright so reclining it just makes a normal seat angle. If I put it reclined in my car it is back enough for her to sleep. If we know she'll need to sleep we usually take a neck pillow now anyhow. I'm happy with it because we got it when she was about 2 and still using it now she 's 6 as it converts and the headrest adjusts up. Also has a seatbelt guide and anti-sub clip which were safety musts for me.

    Once she's 4 I'd recommend the HiLiner booster. The HiLiner instructions show how to use a rolled up towel behind to make it reclined. I do this in my car for long trips as DD finds it more comfy.
