    He's only 2, soooo I'd be getting another car seat. Definately definately not a booster.
    Maybe have a read about current laws and recommendations.

    Thanks so much for the idea of the convertible booster seats. I have just had a quick look at a couple and I think I might get him one of those, thanks again to the ladies that suggested them. :-)

    The age limits are meant to make it easier for ppl to pick a seat without having to know their weight or height.

    OP as others have said, you are best off getting a convertible booster, with the in built 5 point harness. There are heaps on the market, so shop around for one that will meet your needs.

    Most new car seat which are hitting the market are now only height based not weight based, soon all new car seats will be like that. After all old stock is sold. If the child still fits in the inbuilt harness (going by the markers on the side) even if the child is 40kg (just a weight I picked to use) you can still use the inbuilt harness. You can see here what most height markers look like http://www.bubs.com.au/userfiles/images/23378-3.JPG

    Op make sure you take your child with you when you when you go shopping for a new car seat.
