I got my safe and sound maxi rider fitted today. My daughter is 23 months but on the 95th percentile for height and weight so would have been ok weight wise for the normal booster but the maxi rider is safe from six months can recline if you want it to. It takes no more room infact it is less bulk than a normal booster. The advantage is it a standard childseat seat belt meaning they are a whole lot safer it converts to a standard booster after 18kg (I think). It is supposed to take them to 7 or 8 yrs old. The slots for the seatbelt go up higher than on the car seat - great if your bub is tall like ours. We trialed one when our daugher was put in a cast for her hips at six months and it was great. The downside is they are more expensive at just under three hundred dollars, but since we have our second due in 6 weeks it will be used again.
