Did you need a 40 lb limit to RF until age 4?

Title says it all

Depends on how big your child is. My girl just turned four and just reached 35 lbs. but she is in the minority. I would say buy a carseat that rfs to 40 if you want to rf until 4.

We already have seats that RF to 40 lbs. I was just seeing if the majority needed that weight limit.

Yes. DS hit 35lbs at about 3.5 I think...maybe closer to 4, but we would have needed a 40lb limit to solidly get to 4.

DD will probably be in 3rd grade before she's 40lbs.

I didn't make it to age 4 with DD1. She hit 36lbs just before she turned 3, which was just past the limit of her seat so she turned FF. I weighed her about 4 months after she turned 3 and she was 40lbs. She's only just now pushing the 45lbs mark at 2 months past her 5th birthday.

DD2 is trending much smaller than her sister was, so 40lbs should get her easily to 4.

I needed the 40lb limit to RF to age 3, and am hoping (but not sure) that 45 will get us to age 4. DS is 39 lbs and turned 3 in October.

I would have had I known about extended rearfacing with dd. She bit 40lbs at 4 years give or take a few months.

Ds1 didn't hit 40lbs to closer to 5-6.

Ds2 is 28lbs fully dressed at 18 months. So he only needs to gain 12 pounds to reach 40lbs.
