Car booster seat

I've been looking for a car booster seat that looks like it will be durable, stable, and safe. I've finally found one that I thought I'd see if any of you have used yet, or might be interested in. I tried to copy a picture of it, and it didn't work, so check out the site. It's about $80 plus shipping. It's washable and has a molded plastic base made from the same stuff as baby car seats. It looks bigger than the soft ones I've seen more commonly.

Any one used this one? Or have any input about good or bad points?

Sorry, I haven't used it. I use the Oversize Lookout II, which is also machine washable - that's good because after an hour in the car Kubrick will inevitable throw up on it. I've tossed it in the washing machine with no problems. Here's a link to it: http://www.allpetsconsidered.com/xq/...uctdetails.htm

Hi Sheri,

I also have the Oversize Lookout II that Carolina mentioned. Scout loves it. It is very comfy - all dense foam underneath a removable, washable cover.

The regular Lookout II is a little smaller, but I am glad I got the Oversized one. Scout is 14.7 pounds.

I use the lookout seat too. It's hysterical watching Bailey climb up into it with Milo and they look like a dog sandwich. Mine is the regular size which I bought when Milo was a little puppy.

Hi, I have one of the Lookout 11's as well. But I like the look of the one you posted. I like that the length of the seat goes toward the front seat rather than along the back seat. Looks like it would put the dog more within reach from the driver seat. I might be tempted to get one. I didn't get the oversize Lookout one as I didn't want to take up so much of the back seat. But the one you show looks like it would provide as much room as the bigger lookout and still give two seat spaces in back. And it looks very durable. Hope someone will post that actually has tried one. Thanks for your link.

I have a constant problem of keeping Henry in the Lookout seat. He pulls all the way to to front.

Lina - how do you keep Kubrick in there? Or he is just a good boy....

Is this the one you all use? Mine love theirs. One is large and one is reg. They stay in them pretty well unless Vinny gets to hot in which case he gets down on the car seat between them because the air vent is there. I really should strap them in but I'm afraid they might try to jump off and strangle themselves.

mellow - yes I have one of those too (in a blueish green plaid). Anyway, yes, I attach Henry and he pulls to me, you are right, he doesn't exactly strangle himself, but he will dangle if he needs to in order to get to my lap. ugh.
