Re: Are there any dangers to harnessing a child past a certain age?

DH and I were just talking about this because we are shopping for our first combo seat for DD. She will turn ffing in the truck in a few more months...or whenever she hits 25lbs and she teeters between 23 and 24 now. But we decided together (just talking it over, no evidence) that a harness is safer....our reasoning...if a seatbelt is just as safe then why do race car drivers have 5 pt harnesses? Haha....may be silly but it works for us. So we are gonna go ahead and get a very petite girl (3 in June) a frontier. Some say overkill, I say I like the seat best, it fits best out of the other harnessed boosters in the intended vehicle and it will definitely last her until she is in highschool....I mean, for a long time

Not advising turning a 3yo....this is our decision in one certain vehicle only that is rarely used. She will remain rfing in her radian in the main car until she outgrows it
