My daughter is 7 yrs. She weighs 42 lbs and is 4ft tall. She sits in a no back booster (harmony youth booster). She asked recently if she could get out of the booster. I checked the requirements online. 8 yrs or 4'9". So she's staying in her booster. With her weight being so low does she need to be in a highback booster? Confused on weight and boosters.
I found a booster that I'm thinking about purchasing, it's the Sunshine Kids Monterey/Diono sante fe booster for $70 (no high back). It has tethers on the front and back of the seat. I like the seat because of the tethers.
I drive a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan SE. We just purchased this vehicle. My husband believes he found a tether/latch in the back of the van. Not sure. I also have a baby on the way. I read that Dodge can retrofit a tether/latch in the van. Checking into that too. But I've also just read conflicting things about tether/latch systems. GRR.
So....I want her in a booster until she is 4'9" or more and has gained more weight, and one with tethers.... Isn't that the safest?
