Any suggestions for a good booster seat for my 2 year old who weighs 15kgs and is 2 too young for a booster seat on the odd occasion only?

My son is doing that now. too young for a booster but weighs to much for a normal car-seat. We found a 'safety first' car-seat at Wal-mart that has a 5-point harness for the car-seat we need but when he reaches the right age then the seat goes to a booster where we will use the seat belt! it goes from 25-90 pounds forward facing.
You have to check the weight and height specifications for the seat. I know a child has to weigh at least 40 pounds (about 20kg) before you can move them to a booster seat. Also, they have to be tall enough so the seat belt will fit properly over their shoulders. I think 2 is still too little for that. The longer you can keep them in a 5-point harness seat, the better. It's the safest option.
