    We have a mothers choice convertible booster that is quite slim (I have 3 seats in a VW Jetta) and also a Hipod Senator which is slim also. Bith are harnessed and then can be removed for use as a regular booster.

    Thanks for the video but I'm pretty clear on how devastating it would be to lose a child in a car accident. There is no way in the world I'd put my child at risk.
    Good to know...it wasn't very clear from your previous post.

    I meant I didn't want to buy another one if I didn't have to.

    I can understand that, however I do know people who put their kids in boosters far too early because they just didn't want to 'fork out all that money' for something they might only use for a year, or they find it more convenient to have them in a booster. My (wrong) assumption was that you were like these people, and I can only assume that the people I know who do this don't realise how dangerous it is. Surely no one would knowingly put their child in an unsafe car seat?
    Anyway, sorry for the wrong assumption

    That's ok, this thread has made me realise how much I don't know about car restraints so I'm going look into it further. Thanks for the info

    So what you already have is a convertible baby seat if thats what your DS2 is needing after outgrowing the capsule?

    For your almost 3yr old you need to look for a convertible booster seat they typically go from baby to 8yrs old.

    We have a maxi rider which is a convertible booster but its pretty wide, most brands will have something similar if you look around
