Car seat/booster question

I would say height, then weight. Mainly because of the seat belt positions are height dependent.

I would say height and weight are of equal importance. If he is exceeds either the height OR weight limit it becomes dangerous to use the seat. Age is just a guideline.

That's what I thought, but there are no height guidelines to follow just weight and age, wondering if I should buy a good booster for my son now rather then wait

In WA they changed the car seat laws a couple of years ago and over here it goes by age.
From my understanding It's Apparently not about height or weight, its about the hardness of the bones (bone ossification) which is age related.
Of course I could be way off track. We have Kidsafe over here which knows all guidelines, maybe there's something similar in your state?

Oh and I would buy a really good one now. I bought a hipod which has multiple headrest heights and a 5 point harness. DD2 is 3 and a giant and she fits really well in the seat still.

Would you go the hi pod over the safe n sound similar booster and why?

Once he hits 18kg, we HAS to be in a H harness or lapsash seat belt. 5pt harness wont hold past 18kg.
Size over rules age.
