Bigger kids in harnessed seats..

Hi mamas! I am as my dh puts it...'a carseat nut'. I am very pro-carseat! My son will be harnessed as long as the seat will hold him. We chose a seat that will adjust height wise to help us accomplish this! I changed my avi and now you can see him! He will be 4 next Monday and weighs in at 48lbs. He sits very comfy in his Recaro! Please post pics of your bigger kids in their seats! I'd love to see them.

I don't know where any pics are or if I even have any but my dd is 9 next month and still fits in an evenflo maestro. She is only 49 inches and about 46ish pounds, maybe 48 with clothes on. She was in the maestro until I had my youngest dd so she would have been almost eight.

DD2 is 7yo and harnessed in a Britax Frontier. She weighs just under 60lbs and is 45 1/2" tall. She will be in her harness for the long haul

My friends say that my lo will be laughed at by his friends. But that's fine with me! He loves his seat.

I don't have a pic but my 5.5 year old DS1 is 50lbs and 48 in tall and just barely harnussed in his Nautalis. He will out grow it height wise in the next few months. If it helps he wears a size 7 boys shirt. He has a long torso.

I don't plan to harness forever, but at least until DS is 6. We'll see about his maturity after that. Anyway, here he is right at his 5th birthday, 42lbs in his Recaro ProSport

Re: Bigger kids in harnessed seats..

Hmm, why does your pro sport look different than mine?

Not sure. Mine is Envy color, so it's 2 tone, and it looks like you have the solid black one. Could that be it? Or, do you maybe have the YoungSport?
