2 year olds don't belong in booster!!!!!!!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Plain and simple 2 year olds belong in 5 point harnesses. There is no reason to have one in booster seat.

While I don't erf, I think having a child younger than 4-5 in a booster is crazy.

Most states have laws against children under 4 being in a booster.

She is 2.... Not really sure of her weight.

Quoting Lunarprancer:

How old is her daughter?  How much does she weigh?

Quoting Anonymous:

My neice puts her daughter in a backless booster with just the seatbelt...it drives me crazy, and I do not hesitate to let her know how much it bothers me...she insists she is perfectly safe.

A tiny bit over 4'4"

How big is 53 inches?

Quoting KayelynnsMama:

Now they sell carseats that have a 70 pound/ 53 inch limit. No 2 year old is that big.


Quoting Anonymous:

Well when I was 2, you would have had a good time fitting me in a harness.

I wouldn't even know where to find a full car seat to fit a kid 5+ specially a big kid tbh.  I think some moms can be a little overboard with the carseats.

Quoting copperked:

In Oregon, age is also a factor because it better determines bone density (breakability) than height and weight. A child who is inches taller than peers of the same age still has the close to the same bone density and therefore is stil susceptible to the same injuries.


Quoting 428:


I had my 5 yr old in a booster.  Its not the age, its the height/weight.

Quoting MissMysteriouss:

I wouldnt put a 5 yr old in a booster let alone a 2 year old. A 2 year old should still be rear facing.

I never had a carseat, let alone a booster.  Heck, I road down the highway with my head sticking out of the sunroof when I was in elementary school.
