Has anyone found a car seat with a 5 point harness after 18kg? DS is likely to hit the weight limit before he is 3 and I don't want a 2 year old only restrained by an adult seatbelt!

I'm pretty sure I have looked thoroughly and the answer is no... but just incase anyone has any ideas?

We bought DS a Britax Evolva 1,2,3, as he was getting very near the weight limit of 18kg when he was not quite 3, and was getting too big for his old group 1 seat. We eventually ended up using it with the 5 point harness until shortly after his 3rd birthday, as his weight gain slowed down. But, despite my concerns, he is very well seated in the car seat even without the 5 point harness. The seatbelt fits in the right place without digging in his neck, and he has never once undone the seatbelt while the car is moving. The Evolva is really good as the seatbelt passes through a loop linked to the headrest. So, even if your DS is heavy but not tall (not sure if that's the case - DS was/is heavy and tall), you can lower the headrest to make sure they're comfortably and safely seated.
