My dd2 is about to outgrow her current carseat. We really like the nautilus which is what we have dd1 in. But at almost 6 yrs old and and a very thin 41lbs, 46in the bottom latch is getting too tight against her private area. So I guess this is a 2 question post. Is she big enough to sit with the lap belt in the highback booster position safely? I'd like to keep in the 5 point harness for as absolute long as possible. She's so thin and when we let her do the seat belt it just doesn't look like it'd hold her in to me.
My other question is what would you recommend for dd2, who is almost 3, 34lbs, and 37in. She is not thin like her sister and I'm afraid would outgrow the bottom part of the nautilus too soon. I know she should still be rearfacing but we did turn her forward facing at 2.5 after severe motion sickness and throwing up every single time we got in the car.
Thank you all of you brilliant smart mommas who keep up with all of this!!
ETA: I forgot to mention that our budget is around the $100 range, maybe a little more.
