Well, my 6 year old isn't in a booster seat she is in a regular 5 point harness carseat. I am not a carseat nazi but the booster seats don't seem as safe..... My parents put my 4 and 6 year old in boosters when they have them though.

Caitlin (14 months) will be rear facing for another several months, then forward facing in a harness as long as possible, then in a booster seat until she is tall/big enough for the seat belt fits her properly.  I've done research and honestly I think this is best for us, although both my sisters are complete opposites, they think I'm wierd for not turning her yet.

I don't know, my son isn't in one yet...

but I always said that I wasn't going to upgrade Braxton (who's 3) out of a regular 5 point foward facing carseat, until he was in Kinder. So I guess I'd keep him in the booster for a while LOL. I'm just scared to have him only in a seatbelt booster. Even the ones with the back on them--

And before the carseat nazi come out; yes I go by the W/H guide lines...

Hey, your the mom, it is your choice to decide--noone should tell you how to raise your own kids, there is no reason for that!
