HOW TO CHOOSE A CAR SEAT
What is a harness booster car seat?
A harness + booster combination seat transitions from a toddler to big kid car seat. Use the integrated 5-point harness until your child is big enough—at least 4 years old—to buckle up using the vehicle seat belt. Belt-positioning guides ensure a proper fit in booster mode, every time.
Harness Booster Car Seat Checklist
Make sure your big kid is at least 4 years old, between 38-57" tall and at least 40 lbs in booster mode You know your child best, so don’t make the switch until you’re confident your growing child will sit still and safely without a full harness.
Some retailers might allow you to test the fit of a car seat before purchasing but most have displays that allow you to check out the car seat in-store to research the features that make installation simple like bubble level indicators and multiple recline angles.You can also measure your backseat in advance and double check the specs on car seat manufacturer websites.
Harness booster car seats are designed to transition your child from toddler to big kid car seat as your child grows.
