  • I have two and I LOVE them. They are the only booster with a harness that I could find to fit the height/weight of my kids now and they go to a booster up to 100 lbs. My kids love them too, because they have a cup holder and two little areas to put toys.

  • Thanks! I've read some reviews that the crotch strap is tight & since my DD is so tall already I was a little worried that the harness wouldn't fit her & I really want one that transitions that way.

  • The Natulis is FANTASTIC!!!! When CHP installed our car seats (they have a CPST on duty), he raved for a good 15 minutes about them!

    The crotch strap - has TWO positions you can put it in. So if it's too tight, you can move it forward, away from your DD and it will give her more room :)

  • It's a great seat. My son is 42" and he still has a few inches left in the 5 point harness.
