Seems like I"m the only one. Without starting the mommy wars, is there anyone else out there not harnessing their 5 y/o? My dd is small, 36 pounds and 46 inches. She's in a turbo booster.

NO ONE I know who has a 5 year old is still using a harness. NO ONE. I think it is very, very common for 5 year olds to be in boosters.
I'm not there yet so unsure what decision we will make.
The Turbobooster we have has a little pad in the headrest, and when DD falls asleep in the far, her head rests on that, so that she stays in the right position in the seatbelt. If she was falling asleep often, or spilling out of the harness when she did sleep, I think I'd rethink the booster and go back to a harness, but honestly she only rarely sleeps in the car anyway.
