We may very well have been one of the few remaining families in the free world still strapping a 5 year old into a 5-point harness car seat in our primary car. Joseph, by the way, is as big as many 6 & 7 year olds! The time came recently when he really just couldn't comfortably get all those straps up, down and all around him, so thanks to a conveniently timed 20% off sale on Britax at Diapers.com, we now have a new booster seat for Joe Joe in my car. Hard to believe he's been in that same car seat since he was 6 months old, but it's time to pass it on for our neighbor's daughter Chloe to use.
He seems to love it.
But is this really safe?!?
