What 5 pt booster do you have?

I still have about 7 months before I can switch her but I am wanting some ideas on boosters. She is 36 inches tall and 41 lbs so her carseat is starting to get snug with the 5 pt belt.

  • What seat do you have now? Does it have a 50lb harness limit?? How old is your daughter?
    She will need a high back booster until she is 7-8 years old... so don't do a backless... but I would pick on off the best bet list...

    The good bet list is okay too

  • We have a Graco Nautilus. 2 actually. Harness to 65, booster (high back,then backless) to 100. I also hear the Frontier 85 is a Great seat.

  • It does have a 50 lb limit but the straps are out as far as they will go. She is 3.5.
    I don't want to do a backless. I asked about a 5 pt booster...do they even make a backless 5 pt?
    Thans for the lists! I will look into them!

  • You may want to check the laws in your state because in some states the law is 4 years and/or 40 lbs. 3.5 is really young for a booster with just a seat belt and not a 5 pts harness. Does she still perfectly still 100% of the time? Does she reach for things or slouch? If so then she really is not ready for a booster without a 5 pt harness. My son is 4 and 42 lbs and is in a Frontier 85. You should consider checking out the car seat safety group on here. They have techs that are apart of the group as well as other really knowledgable women that may be able to help you find a good seat for your daughter.

  • I agree with Codysmom. My son is 38lbs and 45 inches tall. He is in a Graco turbo booster in our car, Evenflo booster in grandparents car. HE is 4.5 years old and passed the booster test.
