Good carseat or not ?

My daughter wants this carseat... she is ready for a booster ( 43 pounds, 46 inches ) .... right now she has a carseat that has a harness... and this one does not ( which means she would use the regular safety belt... we are also short on cash so it seems even better that it is only $40 ... pretty much every review is good ( the more expensive ones had more bad reviews than this one does) ...

For a kid her size... do I need to worry as much about the safety belt instead of a harness ?

  • I have this for my son and love it. It also had good safety ratings.

    Can she pass the 5 step test? Google it. I did this with my son before changing him to a booster.

  • I'll have to remember the 5 step test when my daughter grows out of her car seat.

  • If you can keep her harnessed as long as you can even without the 5 test.

  • Can she sit like a princess 100% of the time without reaching for things or leaning over?

    Does she still fall asleep on long trips?

    Does she bring her legs up onto the seat?

    How old is she?
