Hayley - 4 years, 9 months

Hayley at  4 years, 9 months old, 46.5 inches tall and 48 pounds in a Fisher Price Futura.

 

Hayley at  4 years, 5 months old, 45.5 inches tall and 46 pounds in a Fisher Price Futura.

Mom's Notes: This is her new primary seat since we acquired a new vehicle that has a frustrating problem--a lap belt that is forward of the bight (seat crease). This means that most carseats will not be tightly installed against the vehicle seat, and end up sliding forward and staying loose. The Futura's unique reverse belt path (an installation option only available on one other seat, the Britax Husky/Regent) allows the forward of the bight lap belt to hold the carseat tight.

The Futura has been discontinued since 2001, but Fisher Price seats had an eight year lifespan, so there are some that still have some life left in them. *

*You should never use a seat with an unknown history.

 

 

Hayley is 3 years, 9 months old.  She is 42 inches tall and weighs 42 pounds.  She is shown here in the Britax Husky (left) and the Car Seat Specialty Airway (right).

Mom's Notes:  Hayley outgrew her convertible carseat by height at 2.5 years old, and we knew she would most likely hit 40 pounds before she was old enough/mature enough for a belt positioning booster seat, so the search for a seat that harnessed beyond 40 pounds was on. We went with the Husky because she's very long in the torso and we were concerned she would outgrow her seats by height rather than weight, so we needed a seat with very tall top harness slots.  Also shown in the Airway, this is our spare seat, she will outgrow this soon by height.
