I have no idea how long I should expect to keep my kids in their convertible carseats. I don't want them to suddenly outgrow them before I have a chance to figure out what type of booster seats we need. I know there are height and weight limits to consider, but around what age did you move your kids into a booster carseat? What type of booster did you get? Do you like it?
Child Safety Techs recomend that children be at least 4 years old and at least 40lbs. before moving to a belt positioning booster seat, and that it is best to wait until the child is mature enough to sit properly 100% of the time.
My oldest was four and a half and 40lbs when we moved him to the Graco Turbobooster. It is a good, yet inexpensive seat. My second child hit 40lbs. at only 3yrs. old so we bought him a seat that would harness him until 65lbs. He stayed in that until he was six years old, and then switched to a booster.
