    Default Recommend me a convertible booster car seat ☺

    We have a new bub on the way, and we plan to move 2.5 yr old DS into another car seat so bub can use the 0-4 sear DS currently uses.

    It seems to make sense to get DS a 6mth-8yr convertible booster seat.

    What do you have? Do you recommend it?

    Our car is a Mazda 3, so a small-medium car, and it would be good to get something not too big as we'll have the other seat in there too.

    We love our infasecure evolve for Mr 4, he will be in it harnessed until at least 8. I like how you can remove the cover for washing without having to remove the whole seat. It's not super wide, I can fit it + 2 other seats in my camry (a maxi rider and some other random convertible safe + sound). They're not cheap, but do go on special around the $320 - $350 mark regularly

    I just got one for my 2.5 yr old as we also have another Bub on the way. I did a bit of research and decided on the britax safe and sound maxi lite. It had good safety reviews and I liked that it was one of a few that reclined as DS still naps a lot in the car. We haven't been using it long but happy so far. We got it on sale for $289.

    I'd go a dedicated forward facing seat (6m to 8y).

    Any of these would be good.

    Thank you, ladies. I'll check these out.

    Is there good research that says harnessed longer is safer than converting to a booster with car seat belt? (Sorry, lazy... save me Googling 😉) I presume harnessed longer seats cost a bit more?

    I'm not sure about the research but mine does both harnessed and car seat belt as I think most convertible car seats do.

    Yep, harnessed is safer as it spreads the load (and they can't sit incorrectly) the price difference isn't too bad. You can get a type g seat (fully harnessed) for as little as $200-250.

    That makes sense, thanks. I'll look into these ☺
