    Default Booster seats wtih higher weight limits - do they exist?

    DS has just tipped the scales at 26.1kg making him over the weight limit now for his current car seat. From what I can gather most booster seats have a weight limit of 26kg though, does anyone know of any that have higher weight limits?

    Thanks.

    What seat was he in? My just turned 5 year old is in the Safe n Sound Hi Liner SG and his seat goes on height and not weight. He's about 22kg and 120cm if that helps

    I just purchased 3 new seats and was told by the salesperson that it now goes on height not weight. The seats on the market for weight limits are being fazed out. Hope that helps.

    My understanding is that a S&S Meridian is a convertible baby seat ie rear and forward facing.
    A S&S Hi liner or Maxirider or something like that is a booster. The S&S Hi liner is an excellent seat which my DD (7) has only just height wise grown out of.

    Bec,
    I just read on a fb page called "rear-facing down under" that one of infasecure seats have passed tests with a 32 kg dummy. Details on the page, a few posts down.

    Even though it only goes on height markers now for all new booster seats, they are still officially tested with 32 kg dummies under Australian Standards guidelines.

    The SnS Hiliner is one of the top rated booster seats and has the highest height markers. My tall 6-year-old is no where near outgrowing it.
