glad you got that figured out. It is grea info to know too.
Did you get the things that go on the seatbelts to keep them from cutting into him. Sorry I can't remember the name. They fasten onto the belts, they are soft and will not cut into him neck. You can get them in the auto department or the auto store.
I am short and I have then in my car.
Hugs your welcome
Wow, he's almost as big as my 13 year old...LOL
I'm glad you got your answer. It doesn't sound like a booster seat would have been safe for him.
I would bypass a pediatrician/fire dept/police dept and talk to a certified, reputable car seat tech. You will get too much conflicting information on here so a car seat tech is your best bet. You can go to safekids.org or http://www.nhtsa.gov/cps/cpsfitting/index.cfm to find a car seat tech in your area. They will be able to give you clear cut information about what your child needs to be safe in your vehicle.
As a car seat tech I have to warn you that Police officers and fire fighters are not trained in any way in car seat safety unless they too are a CPST..... And even then they can be questionable because those people generally are made to take the class to become a CPST where as others volunteer to take the class on their own time... I strongly urge you to go to safekids.org and find a tech near you..... even a phone call to a seasoned tech could be life saving.. :)
Quoting Momyplease:Ok I got the answere. because he is over 100 lbs he does not need a booster sit. I flagged down a police officer at the red light today. the one I called earlier never returned my phonecall. but this one was super nice.
