Toddlers & Preschoolers Toddlers & Preschoolers

My dd is four years old and 33lbs. That's like the 5th percentile for her age. She is in the 90th for her height though. She knows how to get in and out of her carseat by herself so I am thinking it's almost time for a booster seat. What do you ladies think?

Ok this post was not meant to cause drama. STOP IT!! What people do with their own children is no one else's business! I asked for advice and I got the answers I was looking for so thank you all and I really appreciate it. We will not be transitioning her for at LEAST another year. So there is no need to talk shit on each other anymore.

If she leans when asleep then she isn't ready for a booster.


Quoting StrawberryCool:

My dd is 4 and about 50.



Shes in a booster seat...I had to clean the car seat and I couldnt put it back together.



The only think I dont like is when she falls asleep she leans too far.

My 3 year old weighs that much and can get in and out of her seat and even buckle herself in when she wants to. But no way I'm about to take her out of her 5-pt harness.

I'm pretty sure she needs to be at least 40 lbs as well as 4 years old. Plus, most 4 year olds are not mature enough to sit right in a booster seat. My son is 4 years old and 50 lbs and still in a 5 pt harness and will remain in it until he reaches the 65 lb limit of his seat.

Well as long as you lean when you fall asleep in a car then I am sure it's totally safe!

I was thinking the same thing. My husband and I were thinking we were going to wait until she was 5 or 6. Our neighbor has been pushing the issue because she wants to take her out and she's worried about what a car seat will do to her car...yeah I know. Lol. So I just texted her and told her not to get the booster seat. She's probably going to get a little upset... I hope not but I'm not budging. 

Your neighbor needs to mind her own business and learn boundaries.
