    Default Booster Seats....?

    My DD's will be 3 and a half when this baking bub will be born. Rather than buy new baby seats we'd like to use the ones we have for the twins and get booster seats for the girls. They are 12 kilos now so by then should most definitely be at minimum 14 kilo weight.

    My question is do all booster seats need harnesses and need to be anchored and up until what age? I know the laws have changed in the past few years.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Children need to be in a five point harness until 4, then they have to be in a booster seat with lap sash until 7.

    They have to be anchored, yes.

    I would get Maxi Riders or something similar that are convertible booster seats - meaning they have a 5 point harness then can also be used with a lap sash, they have a clip you use with the lap sash too.

    Unless they are physically too big for their seats, they need to stay in seats with inbuilt five point harnesses until 4yo.

    From 4yo-7yo they require a booster and/or harness.

    Check out the baby love ezy combo- we are safe n sound everything and when I looked at boosters the ezy combo was cheaper and had a far higher safety rating. I can't remember the national safety rating site. But it goes from 8kgs to 26kgs with height markers and the inbuilt harness.

    Babylove ezy combo is great, made in the same factory, Britax, as SnS but it is cheaper and rates higher for safety.
