Hi everybody, my almost three year old is in a front facing carseat. We have been strapping her in at the booth dinette in her carseat where we only have lap belts. Anyway, when we make a sharp turn her carseat starts to tip over. Any suggestions on how to make her more secure without spending a whole bunch of money? I was thinking even a booster seat might be better because it doesn't sit so high but she is teeny tiny so I know that technically she doesn't weigh enough to legally be in one.

Been a while since I've had one in a car seat. But have you tried putting things next to the seat to prevent tipping? Cushions, towels, stuffed animals...

Nope, haven't tried that one. I can see it helping on the right side closest to the window but I don't know how much help it would be on the other side with so much space for stuff to roll around.

This may sound odd and it may not even work but -- could you get a bungee cord and run it through the back (like where the lap belt goes except higher up on the seat) then take the two ends of the bungee and run them up over the back of the booth seat to the underside of the outside of the back of the booth seat? -- That sounded really confusing but do you get what I mean at all? In my mind it seems like it could totally work... Or a very short bungee cord with one of the hooks in the back top of the carseat with the other hook under the back of the booth -- is there a place for the hook to "catch"?

what blessed said sounds like a good idea if you use something sturdier than a bungee
