Okay so yall have me thinking...I was wondering what 5 pt harness carseat would be good for a ff 3-1/2 yr old. She is 43 lbs and about 39" tall. I am not into the erf...so if you could just give me info on the harnessing, that would be great.

Here are a couple good pages to look at:

Hope that helps!

ETA: I didn't see your second post.  The only seat that is under $100 right now, is the Safety 1st Apex 65.  Harnesses to 65 lbs, then becomes a booster.  It requires head support behind the seat to the tips of the child's ears, so tall seatbacks or headrests in the vehicle are a must.  You can get this seat at albeebaby.com for $90 with $5 shipping.

I can't think of anything under $100.  Do you think she could fit into a booster?  You can get one of those for $20.

I have her in a booster now, but I am seriously thinking about EH. Thank you anyway though.
