We plan to keep Myles rf'ing till he outgrows rf weight on his True Fit Premier. He is 2 and 28 pounds. His seat can rf till 35 pounds. ERF & ERH are hugh passions of mine & I would love to be a car seat tech someday.

My ds was in his 5 point harness till he was 6. Now he's in a high back booster. Dd will rf until at least 2, probably 3. Both my children are small so I base carseat position/type on multiple issues, not just weight. The 6.5 year old is only 36lbs and the 15 month old is only 17lbs .

No. My son was over 2 when I first heard about ERF. I plan to ERF if we are blessed with more children. We harnessed until 4, and then went to high back boosters. My daughter is 7, and my son is 5.

Didnt erf with ds he was a big boy and hated it so on his bday I turned him, but he will be harnessed until he can no longer be. Dd will depend on her size and how she handles herself on erf but harnessed to the extent.

I rear face until 2. And use the 5 point harness as long as I can.
