When did your DC stop riding in a carseat?

for those with older kids ... what age and/or size were they when you stopped using a seat?

We haven't reached that point yet. My dds are 3 & 5 and still in a 5 pt harness. They will be in those for at least 3-5 years longer. Then they will be in a booster. My dh says their first cars will have recaro racing harnesses in them.

Noah is 8 and he's still in a booster (backless booster). Jonah will be getting a Regent when he outgrows his Decathlon and he'll stay in that until he outgrows it

I took my oldest out of a booster when she was 6 because she's super tall and can wear a seatbelt properly. I put my middle in a backless booster for now until I get a Zeke booster for her. She'll be in one until she's about 6. (don't worry anyone, she's older than 4)

my 6 yo is in a backless booster still and my ds was 7 or 8 when he was out of his booster. Although if we go on a road trip and we have room in our car we still will put him in a booster- he is only 60 lbs and 9 yo now.

Maddie is almost 8 and is now just out of her booster, I need to get her another one though because I just don't like her not being in one but her other one got too small for her

My dd Lauren is 8 and I just started letting her ride out of the booster because she outgrew it. I won't let her ride in the front seat though. My younger 2 will ride til at LEAST 8, maybe longer if they are still able to sit in their booster comfortably. They are 5 and 6 now and they are both in a 5-point.

Re: When did your DC stop riding in a carseat?

Our almost 10 year old is still less than 4 f t 9 inches so he's still in a booster seat. The other 5 are all in carseats. But the only way to determine when your kids will be out of them is based on your car (different seatbelts will hit differently on people), your child's size, their emotional maturity level (will they sit still or do they always move around in the car), and your personal comfort level based on which risks you are ok with. Really tall kids will be out sooner, obviously.
