My boys are ages 6 and 8 and both are in a LBB.  By law, the 8 year old doesn't need one anymore but he is safer still being in one.  He has not reached 4'9" yet so I'll keep him in it for a bit yet.  I look at how the shoulder strap sits on his shoulder and without a booster he's still too short for it to sit right.

I've got a 6 yr old in a booster seat and an 8 yr old in a booster seat - the 8 yr old hates it just because he thinks he's too old for it - I just have to keep telling him he's not tall enough lol

all the men  are 6+ feet.. the women are all a round 4 foot lol. i'm only 5'4"  and i feel like a amazon every time there is a family gathering. i'm the tallest of even the in law -women . so far my dd's are taking after me

Quoting -Mommy-2-Three-:

My husbands mom is 4'9" & I have 2 female cousins who are 4'11" but otherwise everyone else for us is REALLY tall, my kids definitely got the REALLY tall genes LOL! 

Quoting t_creanskisa:

my nice is 11 and still in a boster.  she is just going to be small. by the rule 50 inches tall she will NEVER be able to rid in a car with out a boster.  her mom is barely 4' 2"

I have been 5'11.5" since I was 14 so I've always felt like an amazon LOL :P My big brother is 6'6" so I didn't feel alone LOL & Luckily I found an amazing man who is 6'4" so our kids are doomed haha........we have the few SUPER short women in our families (4'9-4'11) but so far my kids are following in our fooot steps, my DD is 19m & 36.5" & my 2nd son is 36m & is 44" & my oldest son is 5y10m & is 54" tall! Their height estimations at the pedi was DD @ 18m= 6' & Ds2 @ 24m=6'6" & Ds1 @ 24m=6'5" LOL!

If I had a little child at this point I'd feel bad because it'd feel so tiny one day haha!

She sits in a camo booster seat with a seatbelt ( approved by DHS child welfare) and my youngest sits in a five point harness seat.. I even asked a cop about the booster seat and he said it was fine..

My 7 year old is.  A kid here is supposed to be 4'9.  She's about 42 inches so she's got quite a ways to go.
