Anyone else have a low tone child? My son is 4 but the size of a 6 year old. He can sit unsupported for usually a max of 5-10 minutes (on a good day). Anyone found a good carseat (hes 50lbs and 47" tall). He just needs more support, he usually trys to get this by laying down his head in the middle, which completely bipasses the shoulder seat belt, which is dangerous. (course he also tends to lean on anyone, stranger or not, at things like church in the pews and such but most men don't appreciate a kid putting their head down in their laps....)
Are there any good solutions out there? i've researched some car seats but $500 seat seems a little excessive and i;m not sure what to do. He is diagnosed with hypotonic cp, developmental coordination disorder, low tone, high adolaise, proximal myopathy, spina bifida occulta, oral apraxia, and sensory integration disorder.
any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
