your children in a rear facing carseat?
A forward facing seat?
Im a stickler when it comes to carseats. My 4 year old is still in a forward facing 5 point harness because she still fits perfectly fine.
I know some parents whom have their 3 and 4 year olds in booster seats.
I know some extremely lazy parents who have their kids that are 4 years and up in no booster seats! Makes me so mad.

Harnessed until they outgrow it. Same with boosters. My 4 year old is harnessed as will be for a long time.

by MamaPeanutDecember 13, 2012 at 12:27 PMThis is incredibly unsafe, you can literally kill your child.
NO child should be in a booster until at least 4 and 40 pounds, but realistically around age 6.
All kids need to be in a booster until at least age 8, but most need one until 10-12.
I rf till 1, ff till 3, high back till almost 5
by MamaPeanutDecember 13, 2012 at 12:27 PMMy 1st child was RF until 5, and at 7 is still harmessed. She is very small.
My son is still RF at 2.

3 1/2 for ds1
Idk, but ds1 is 4 1/2 now and still in a 5 pt harness
Booster until 8 or until I feel he's safe in just the seat belt.

Harness until it doesn't fit, then a booster if they do not fit right.

DD1 was RF until roughly 17 months. We're moving her to a 5 point harnessed booster next month (she's nearly 4) and will remain in that until she outgrows it.
DD2 is only 9 months so she's obviously still RF but when DD1 gets the booster, DD2 gets her convertible carseat. We'll most likely RF until 2 with DD2 because, well, we know better now!

My kids were RF until 2.5. My 3.5 and almost 7 year old are still in 5 points, and my 10 year old is in a backless booster.
