Re: What kind of car seat is your 6+ y/o in?

My dd is 7 1/2 and she's only 42lbs and 52" or so (haven't measured in a while) so she'll definitly be in her high back booster for awhile and that's fine by me. Just bought her 3yo bro a Nautilus and love it, he'll use it for a long time hopefully. He's on the small side.

I didn't vote, but my dd who is 5 years is in a 5pt harness with no plans to switch to a booster anytime soon. I also see kids her age in the front and back seat without any seat at all!

Re: What kind of car seat is your 6+ y/o in?

Well, your poll only accepts one answer. I have 5 children who qualify as 6+. I have 1 in a 5pt harness seat. He's 6 but he's emotionally and developmenally extremely delayed and on the cognitive level of a 3 year old. I don't consider him safe in anything but a 5pt harness. I have two 7 year olds. One is in a high back booster and the taller one is in a backless booster. The 9 and 12 year olds aren't in car seats anymore. The 9 year old technically *can* use a backless booster but she's positioned correctly with the seatbelt without it and I just recently got tired of the whining out of her and let her graduate out.

The 12 year old is 5'4" and 116lb. I had to confiscate his backless booster last summer as he hit 90lb and his head was about to hit the roof of the van. It was a sad day for him when I had to tell him he wasn't safe in that booster anymore. He was VERY attached to his booster seat for some crazy reason. But, I let him stay there as long as I could and I didn't think he was safe anymore.

I can't vote, but when my son is 6 years old he'll still be in a 5 pt. harness.

My almost 8yo is in a backless booster. She is 53" and 63 lbs. There are no 5pt harness seats that she fits here in Canada or she'd be harnessed still.
