I would recommend keeping him harnessed in a new seat if at all possible. i have the turbo booster. at least until i can try to raise the funds for a $300 car seat........oye!

Quote: Originally Posted by DahliaRW No, he cannot stay harnessed past the weight limit. It is not crash tested that way and it could fail in an accident. But, there are other seats that will keep him harnessed past 40 lbs. The one that will last you the longest is the Graco Nautilus or Britax Frontier and both convert to good boosters. If you decide to booster him, I would NOT use the AO as a booster. It makes a lousy booster. Go buy a $45...

i've posted this in another forum, but i guess i really could get good feedback here. i have 3 kids. 16mo girl and 2 boys; almost 3 and almost 5. i have been having a rough time. i really need to find a rhythm to my day that is productive. the baby wants to be held alot, and i do sling her; but for me.......i can't sling her for more than an hour at a time, while doing stuff. and even then what takes me an hour would only take me 15 minutes hands free. i love...
where do you start? i think all the reasons for not spanking are right on, but then what? if you don't spank what do you do? i was raised in a spanking family and i don't want my children to spank there children, but i can't teach them appropriate ways to discipline, because i don't know myself. again, where do you start? thanks for any advice.
