Sorry if this is (a) a stupid question and/or (b) has been asked before

but

having just returned from a long-ish car journey with dd who is finding it impossible to sleep in her car seat, does anyone know of a good booster seat that is comfortable and that allows a child to nod off easily?

At the moment she is too upright, has no-one to lean her head against and keeps flopping forward and waking herself up.

Thanks for any info.

Sorry! No WHERE to lean her head against (sides of current seat very unforgiving and upright)

DD has one of those neck pillows like this which we keep in the glove compartment in case she wants a kip

We have the Maxi Cosi Rodi XR. It reclines a bit and the sides are big. Both dd's have slept in their Rodi's, although tbh we have never actually reclined them....

ah ha .. may be that's the way to go ... thanks Scootergrrl

Was looking at this:

www.mothercare.com/gp/product/B000VD6HJO/sr=1-50/qid=1216142964/ref=sr_1_50/026-6390669-1938000?ie=U TF8&m=A2LBKNDJ2KZUGQ&n=44453031&mcb=core

but didn't want to invest without getting some feedback first ...

OK will investigate Rodi's too then VanillaPumpkin - thanks for info - x-posts!

We also have the maxi cosi rodi and ds1 aged 5 still manages to sleep in his without the recline (new car means the plastic bit that slips under the back of the seat will not fit now)

Our ds (3) has this one and its very comfy and he sleeps in it lovely.

or maybe this one is more suitable.

Thanks Fizzylemonade and Nobody's Fool

I will print out this thread when I go shopping ...

I can see all the ones recommended have nicely padded head supports - I'm afraid I just got ours (a really basic model) from the nearest chain store and I'm really regretting it now ...

Thanks again
