That would give you the longest harness use without getting into special needs seats that are $$$$$.
Thank you so much, I needed that this has been so hard. I have no one to talk to about this and am in the house with him all the time. I never get a break other than coming to the library for an hour a week. I am just so stressed out and then this only adds to it all.

I am going to check out the seats you mentioned cause I looked up a special needs seat and it was so much I almost passed out. I think $1,000 for a car seat is crazy, especially for a family with a SN child.
