Aaron - 6 years, 6 months
Aaron at 6 years, 6 months old, 48 lbs and 47
inches tall. Aaron is in the Britax Husky. Aaron's brother Ryan is also harnessed past 40 lbs.
Mom's Notes: When Aaron
first reached 40 lbs, we chose to keep him harnessed because we had to
fit three across the back seat of a sedan (Chevy Impala). It was
much easier to buckle him into his seat (then the Britax Wizard) than to
try to buckle a booster next to another seat. We purchased a van
when Aaron was 5 years and 11 months old and 44 lbs. At that
point, we chose to keep him harnessed because we think that the harness
provides more side protection than a booster seat, especially in a side
impact or rollover crash. Aaron also has some behavioral issues
that compel us to keep him harnessed. At this point, we don't feel
that he is emotionally/mentally mature enough to sit correctly in a
booster seat. Since a booster requires the child to stay in the
correct position at all times, we feel that the harness is necessary to
keep him safe.
Aaron at 6 years old, 48 lbs and 47 inches tall
in the SafeGuard Go. We are currently using the Go as a spare seat for our
car (Chevy Impala) which my husband drives. Aaron has 3-4 inches of
growing room until he is too tall for the harness. The Go is nice because
it can be quickly adjusted to fit all three of our older kids, ages 9, 6 and 2.
Aaron is 5 years, 6 months old. Aaron is 43 inches tall
and weighs 45 lbs. Aaron is shown here in the Britax Wizard.
