    As per the title, I was wondering how people are handling adding a booster to the third row. My 5 1/2 year old is currently sitting back there, but the way the seat cushions are built up causes the booster to tilt to the side. I've considered cutting out some cushion material (that we already happen to have) and essentially create a flat seating surface to level it off, but wondering if there isn't a better, or more aesthetically pleasing, solution.

    Thanks in advance.

    After buckling, we were able to just push the booster back in place. What brand are you using?

    It's a Graco. It sits flat when he's not in it, but once he's in there he looks like a listing ship after 5 min.

    Interesting. Same one I have. Cloth vs leather seat bolster difference? I have cloth seats.

    Thanks for the information, it may be better to just order a new seat.

    I do have leather seats, but didn't consider there would be that much of a difference.

    Thought I'd update:

    Went ahead and got the Cosco seat, and it seems like it'll work well, though I think I'll add a bit more padding under the cover. My son seems to like it, and he's no longer listing. Thanks again for the suggestions.

    Hi I just joined this forum because I'm considering a Model X and was curious to see what issues I may need to consider. There's a booster brand called "clek" that snaps into the "latch" anchor and keeps the seats from shifting around. Wonder how these would do in the 3rd row?

    Those should work fine. We have a Graco brand booster that also has latch attachments.
