Bedmonster, I wouldn't change to the high back booster for quite a while yet, but because of age not weight.
15 months is really young to just have a seatbelt going across them. I'm just thinking of moving ds1 to a high back booster now because I think he's old enough to not undo the belt or slip under it etc and he's nearly 3. I wouldn't trust a 15 month old.

Trazzle I will keep him in the one in my car for as long as he still fits, but we have a booster with the back thingy from the DDs in the loft. Think we may just bite the bullet and buy another one like mine for DPs car.

Apologies OP, I have derailed your thread and should probably start my own blush

A lot of assumptions in your post there mum vs kids hmm
I nowhere said every old car is unsafe...I was referring to a specific situation. Do you want a clap or something?

Thanks Pretty, it's basically what DP and I thought really, he's far too young for just a seatbelt. We just wanted to see what the next options were.

I wouldn't be so worried about the 2 year old in a booster seat (but why, if you have the choice of a safer seat?) but a 7 month old in a forward facing seat is just reckless!

They are supposed to be at least 9 months AND 9kg to go forward facing - because their little necks can snap so easily.
