A booster like this should not be used until a MINIMUM of 4 and 40lbs, but preferably closer to 6 or, more importantly than age, when the child is mature enough to sit up straight the entire ride and not move around, because the placement of the seat belt is VERY important when it comes to booster. I would urge you to discontinue using the booster seat for your child and purchase a harnessed seat to use for another few years. Your child is at risk for serious or fatal injuries at their age in a booster seat should you ever get into an accident.
Really? Are you sure about that?
Your child is also at risk of serious or fatal injuries should you ever get into an accident in a car seat. Then again, its also risky to let them ride a bike. Or walk on sidewalks near roads....
Maybe you put your kids at more risk because you exceed the speed-limit, sure that your amazing car seat will protect your kids.
I hope OP never drives when they are tired, or distracted. Or in a late-model vehicle with lesser safety standards. [I highly recommend an M1 Abrahms Tank - you'll come out on top in any fender bender ;)]
Just so tired of all the car seat mania. Yes, cars are dangerous. We all want our kids to be safe, but we also can't keep them in a bubble. A booster isn't a loaded gun, people.
