Hi everyone I havent been on here in awhile. Last Friday I sold my Lincoln Aviator and bought a 2007 Kia Sedona minivan with leather seats, etc. I havent had to put the kids in yet but I did put her Frontier in it yesterday, but my question is this, can I put the Frontier in booster mode, she turned 5 years old on Feb 8th and is 43 lbs and 40 inches tall and wears size 6 and 7 clothes. She has been in a booster a few times in the sitter's escalade and doesnt seem to have any issues with it. I just wanted you'alls opinion. Thanks. PS here is a picture of her, she is all torso and legs just like her mama

Thanks AlexAidenmom for my awesome siggie!

Optimally he would stay harnessed a but longer but the true test is how she fits in the belt by itself. The lap portion must be over lap and not belly, the shoulder portion not digging Into her neck, etc. also, she would have no remain in proper position 100% of the time even when sleeping. could you post a picture of her in the booster in the seating position she would be in so that belt fit could be assed?

I think the best thing for your little monkey is to stay in a high back booster for as long as possible. With the added support for the back, neck and head you can't go wrong with safety with a high back.

I know some people will say they take up a lot of room but they are making them less and less wide than they used to.

I don't have her in a booster in my van I have her harnessed in her frontier85 and because of my hands from my stroke I am only going to mess with the harness one time when it's time to take the harness out of the frontier...

Thanks AlexAidenmom for my awesome siggie!
