    Yeah it's hard when they grow faster than expected! Another option might be a cheaper harnessed seat with an adjustable buckle to get it higher away from her thighs? I don't know which ones have the adjustable buckle though. There's a Facebook page, "child restraints, is your child restrained correctly", hope I've got the name right! They have quite a lot of good information and might be able to suggest a cheaper alternative.

    Oh yes good idea will join that group! The evolve has the adjustable buckle, as did the rallye but that IS fully extended . Before I extended it, it sat well down between her legs. Will go join group now and pump them for info whilst enduring the judgment that's she's not still rear facing

    Default Best booster seat for big kids

    What about a safe n sound maxi rider - my DS got to 9 and a half in one of those but really got too tall on the highest extension. The submarine clip is really expandable too.

    This is the maxirider on its highest extension. It would do for now but definitely not to 7.

    Hmmm that's about $220... Is there home brand versions of these seats around?
