    Default Car seat/ Booster seat question...

    This may be a silly question... just wondering is there a car seat that can be used as a booster seat (on its own or with attachments) for after 4 yrs??

    DD is 2yrs old, I need to buy a new seat for her and just thinking that if I have to buy a booster seat when she is 4 than I may buy a slightly less expensive one

    There are dedicated boosters but she's much, much better off staying in a 6 point harness as long as possible. I'd be getting a convertible booster for her.

    My safe and sound maxi rider can be used until 4 then the harness can be removed so it can be used as a booster until 7.

    The Infa-Secure Luxi Ride is for 0-8yrs and I think there are others too.

    I second the maxi rider-love that safe n sound seats have the anti-submarining clip for when they are using the normal seatbelt too!

    i know safety first do a seat similar to the maxi rider as well

    Look at something like pram warehouse website in the convertible booster section. Sns, infa secure, baby love, hipod and many other companies all do seats that would suit you. Good luck finding something, I've just spent 2 weeks researching our next seats. And check out 'child restraints. Is your child restrAined correctly' on Facebook. Everyone on there is really helpful.

    I have a maxi rider for DD. We have just convereted it to a booster seat in last month or so. I like that it has the antisubmarining hook on it.

    It is a little fitting that goes in the harness buckle. You loop it over the lap part of the adult seatbelt when the restraint is used in booster mode. It stops the lap part riding up and potentially causing major abdominal trauma in an accident. Other seats have little armrests that you run the seatbelt under in an attempt to do the same thing.
