Sandrine - 7 years
Sandrine harnessed in the Britax Husky at 7 years old.
She weighs about 47 lbs.
Mom's Notes: She normally rides
in a booster in my parents' cars or friends cars and in my Echo which is
newer, but I really really wanted her in a harnessed seat which I feel is
safer, in our old 2-door hatchback Honda Civic 1989. Being not only a
smaller car but a much older one, I wanted her as best protected as I could
Sandrine is 6 years and 1 month old in the Britax
Marathon. She weighs about 36-38 lbs depending on the day.
Mom's Notes: I partly bought the MA to keep her RFing longer when I
passed the RA down to her sister, and partly b/c of the higher height/weight
harness use. She is actually relatively close to the top slots, but will
probably fit another year or so I would think. Right now I have it in the middle
of my mother's car since that spot is a lapbelt only and I want it being used
for as long as possible by a harnessed child rather than anyone else. She also
rides in a Recaro Young Sport, harnessed, but obviously will have to use it as a
booster once she hits 40#.
