My 4 yr old son is currently in a Britax Decathalon. My almost 1 year old daughter is in an infant seat she growing out of. We were thinking to move her to the Decathalon, and to get a booster-type seat for my son. However, we would like to keep him in a 5-point harness for as long as possible. Many models seem to switch to using the car's seat belt at 40 lbs, (which he is almost) and would prefer one that has a higher weight limit. So what we are trying to figure out is do we:
A - Find a booster/convertible seat for my son in which he is able to be in a 5-point harness for 65 lbs, or so, and move our daughter to the Decathalon
B - Keep my son in the Decathalon for now (as it will go up to 65 lbs with a 5-point harness), and find a convertible for my daughter?
Have done lots of research on this on my own, and we love Britax, however would like to see what others would do, and get some ideas. Thanks!
