Fantastic thread. Way too many 2-4 year olds go into boosters long before it is safe for them.

I also wanted to add a quick note on the 3-in-1 seats that are SO common. Any Alpha Omega/Eddie Bauer/Cosco 3-in-1 is not a seat we recommend. The harness only goes to 40 lbs (newer models do go to 50lbs, but we still don't usually recommend them). Once children outgrow the low harness weight & height, the booster part of the seat is NOT a good fit for almost all children. So they advertise it as good from 5-100 lbs, but really it's going to be outgrown early on and the booster shouldn't be used.

95% of kids aren't in their car seats safely.
