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.

At a store?


Quoting 428:


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.

Oh lord woman, you are brave to say that here ;0)

I thnk it goes more by weight and height then age. Some 2 year olds are as big as the average 5 year old. This is something you have to go by size not by age. I used to stand in the front seat beside my mom as she was driving lol -----that was a VERY long time ago lol......like late 60's :)

Well, that is illegal here.

Quoting Anonymous:


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.

My almost 7 year old is still harnessed, with no booster in her near future.

I would NEVER put my 2 year in booster. 2 year olds should still be rear facing.

My neighbors have their 2 year old in a booster (which is illegal in my state) and they say I'm crazy for having my 4 year old in a 5 point harness still. It drives me nuts!
