Well, to make my post as short as I can. The stores around here no longer carry "Combination Car seats" and buying online isn't an option.
My daughter outgrew her infant carrier at 3 months (height limit not weight), so I bought a convertible car seat when she was 3.5 months old and just before her 2nd birthday she was measured at 40" at her doctor's office and school. She has been forward facing since 10 months due to height. I've put off getting her another car seat because we don't go anywhere in the winter time. I picked out the car seat I was planning on getting her, just to find out that they don't call them "combination car seats" anymore and they are not available in stores as well as they don't have the height requirements on them (before it was said they went to 43") they just have weight limits, well I don't know how much my daughter weighs, probably somewhere around 28-30 pounds and she is still 40-41", so I was looking at the high back booster seats and they range in height from 38" to 57" and 30 pounds to 65 pounds. Seems like I could get a high back booster seat for her. Laws in my state only say that children up to age 11 need to be in a proper car seat or booster seat.
