Just before he was 4yo. He was about 36lb and his booster (britax parkway?) is from 33lb.

Just an FYI- the owner's manual of the Parkway states that the booster can be used for children between 38"-60", but that children under 40lbs are better protected in a harnessed seat. Britax does not specifiy a minimum weight for this particular seat.

DS1 (4.5) will be harnessed until he outgrows the top slots on his Frontier, and he's still on the second-from-top ones now, so probably age 6+.

I am in the UK so it's probably a bit different. It definitely specifies from 15kg (33lb) Ds is quite tall too.

ETA - maybe it's not a parkway we have. I can't find our exact one online but it looks nearly exactly like this one only it's all black.

Oh, you're one of the lucky ones to get the "good" Britax seats, LOL!! Yep, that's not a PW. I love the non-US Britax seats!!

And I love the US seats. I think they allow you to RF a lot longer there too, not sure why!

My two older kids were about 4.5 years, and just under 40 pounds, but had outgrown their harnessed seats by height.

Youngest (28 months) is in a Radian, so we shouldn't have that problem with him. Once he meets the age and weight minimum, though, I think I'd be fine with him in a booster. ERF is more important to me than extended harnessing.

Sounds like my DS. He will probably be about that weight when he's that age. At this rate, he won't be in a booster until he's damn near ready for his license.

TTC my second and his first!

Yep! My 6yo is 33lbs and DH said we'll have to figure out a way for her to take her car seat to college At this rate, she'll be harnessed till then. I wouldn't dream of putting her in a booster now *shudder*

My DS is almost 4 and only 22.5 pounds. He's still RF'ing and I couldn't imagine even FF'ing him any time soon even though most of the kids his age we know are already in boosters!
