    Default Car seat help!!

    My DD is almost 6 and has reached the high markers for her seat to go into booster mode. I do not want her to use just a lap sash belt. Do I now buy a H harness and fit it or is it something else? Sorry I'm a bit lost.

    Thanks.

    If you'd like to keep her harnessed, have a look at the G type seats. Infasecure evolve or safe & sound maxi guard (there is a baby love one too i think!)
    I'm not sure on the legalities, but i don't believe h harnesses are recommended now

    a H harness is no safer than a lapsash belt and companies recomend their use only if there is no lap sash available.

    I'd try her in a rallye perhaps? my ds is tall for his age and I think will easily fit in a 5pt harness rallye til 7 or more and then we can convert it to booster mode

    Thank you so much! I just want her in whatever will keep her safest so that seems a big no to H harnesses. So a brand new seat is the best option?

    Thanks again, I'm so glad I asked before buying!!

    Personally, i'm planning on getting a maxi guard for my 5 year old when she outgrows her current 5 point harnessed seat. It should keep them harnessed until at least 8 years old 😀 (longer in some cases)

    I second the Rallye. I've got almost 5 DS in it. He's tall for his age and I can't see him moving out of the 5 point harness until at well past 6. I specifically bought the Rallye because it had the highest shoulder markers.

    I'm an Evolve girl. You don't have to take the seat out to adjust the straps, it's got a twist and turn to adjust.

    I had a Rallye. My DD is 3 and huge for her age. She had a while before the markers but the buckle strap was too short and down under her rather than on her torso. It's a good seat if you don't have a large child.


    I had my large 7yo niece in the evolve and are fitted fine.
