    Default Booster Seat advice needed for big almost 4-year old

    Hi all,

    I posted this (mistakenly) on the Baby section earlier...

    We had to do it the hard way...first an infant seat, then a Britax toddler seat, then an impossible-to-find Fisher Price quasi-booster seat but with a 5-pt harness (because our kid was 40 pounds but still too young for just a shoulder belt harness) we're gonna move the FP to car number 2 and get our final (I hope) booster seat for the Honda Odyssey. Steven is now almost 4 and just under 50 pounds and it a very content car rider.
    We would appreicate any advice and guidelines and websites and price info on the best, easiest-to-use, best value and of course safest booster seats out there. Recommended websites to check out are also appreciated.

    By the way, after 2 years of trying and lotsa doctor visits and $$$, it looks like Steven may have a brother or sister in about 8 months. Geez it's hard to type with my fingers crossed! that we forgot everything we had learned, time to start again!

    Hello! Given the size and age of your child, you have a few choices. If you are hoping to keep your son harnessed for a while and don't mind using a huge seat, the Britax Huskey is a nice choice - it keeps children harnessed up to 80lbs. They have this seat at the Right Start Store. If you feel your son is ready for a belt-positioning booster, the Britax Roadster holds children up to 100 lbs. I think this seat is on clearance at right now for $95. Good luck!
