DS is nearly 40 inches but only a in the low 30s for weight.  I have a britax marathon but need a second seat- i was hoping for booster, but need the safest thing i can get.  Do I go for the Frontier or are there other better or more economical options?

 

The 5 point harness is killing me!  I hope he can do his own soon!

Is this for the child who has just turned four?  Very very few newly-4yos are developmentally ready for a belt-positioning booster.  The Graco Nautilus is a good choice, and is significantly less expensive than the Britax Frontier.

Yes, just turned 4 and EXTREMELY thin.  I like the 5 point harness idea thinking of it now, but the britax (which I made the mistake of showing the cow cover to ds) is soooooo pricey!

What is your budget?

Amazon has the Cowmoo Frontier for $206 right now.

 

ETA: If you want a lower-budget seat, I would get him an Evenflo Maestro. $60-$80 most places.
