My son is exceptional tall for his age. I'm not worried about his legs. I'm worried about him. He is so tall in fact that the straps on his booster seat won't fit around him hardly. When I go to buckle him in I have to literally bend his arm backwards to make it fit. Then he cries because it's so tight. I can't loosen it anymore as it's already to the max.
I found this booster seat at Wal Mart. It's a 3 in 1. It covers a baby from 20 lbs to 100 lbs. Only problem is it's not rear facing. It's "top of the line" apparently so it's not too cheap and I wont have to buy him another one ever because it goes until he's a child. I don't know what to do. If the straps would work better I'd leave him in his car seat but if they wont fit them I might as well not put him in one at all. I'm going to wait till he's one. (September 13) Another problem is most "older aged" car seats hold up to 35lbs (our does) but m son is so long he won't fit. It's like break his arm, no car seat, or booster seat.
His measurements -approx 32 in long, 22 lbs, 12 in torso. He even wears a size 5 in shoes. His feet hang over the car seat but his shoulder are where the straps have problems... and his belly. He's not chunky they just won't adjust any farther out.
P.S. here's the link
