What Parents Are Saying About the Diono Solana 2 LATCH Backless Booster Car Seat

Take a look at what these families love about this essential XL backless booster for big kids.

“I am so glad I found this car seat. My 6-year-old is 105 pounds and 51” tall. He has low muscle tone which makes it hard for him to sit up. This seat is perfect: it’s wide enough that he can sit comfortably, it has him up a bit higher the his last so the seat belt sits correctly and it has a slight incline towards the back of the seat so he can sit and relax. It has a wonder LATCH system that was easy to install in just seconds. It is also easy to uninstall and move from car to car. It’s lightweight and easy to clean!”

“I was in the market for something for my 6-year-old daughter (who is very petite but TALL), and glad I stumbled upon this while browsing! Very reputable brand. Just as a word of caution though, it is on the ‘wider’ side in terms of ‘normal’ boosters, but as I mentioned, my petite 6-year-old fits fine and hits the important safety belt areas fine. The seatbelt is a little bit difficult to plug in, and I have a fairly wide backseat (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee). I usually have to wiggle the seat over a tad in order to buckle her in, and then readjust.”

“I bought this for my 5-year-old granddaughter as she is at the age when a car seat is too small and a seat belt alone is not an option. First is high quality, good cushioning, and very easy to install. Second, it is inexpensive for the quality I mentioned before. Third, my granddaughter loves it! The color is bright and sits sturdy in the car seat. You can't go wrong with this booster seat, I highly recommend it!”

“I have bought multiple booster seats and not one has fit my child. She is 8 years old 4'8 and 85 lbs. This booster not only has the LATCH system, but it also fits my child with room to grow. The LATCH straps get hung up by the fold in the strap so you may need to tug on it to get it through. And the part that goes behind the shoulder to hold the seat belt doesn't work for me. Those things aside, I give it 5 stars for being 1 out of 12 boosters that actually fit my child.”

The Verdict

The Diono Solana 2 XL Backless Booster Seat with LATCH truly lives up to its promise of being the only booster seat you'll ever need. With a focus on comfort, safety, and convenience, it's a reliable companion for school runs, playdates, or overnight visits with grandparents. At ANB Baby, we confidently recommend the Solana 2 XL to families looking for a high-quality, durable, and stylish booster seat that puts your child's well-being first. Invest in the Solana 2 XL and enjoy 8 years of worry-free journeys with your growing child.
