Congrats to Joanne Gregory
My oldest son is no longer in a booster seat. He is tall enough and weighs enough to finally be out of his booster seat. My poor son thought his mom would NEVER let him out of that booster seat, but I had him in it for as long as I felt he was needed to be in it and I would not have done it any other way!
As for my daughter, she is 7 and little. So, she is obviously still in a booster seat with a back to it. She will be in it for a while yet. She knows why she is in it and that it is for her safety.
Then there is my littlest one. He is SUPER tiny and is obviously still rear facing, even though he is 2. He is like 4% on the growing curve for his weight. So, ya, he is still rear facing.
I received the RECARO Performance SPORT Combination Harness to Booster Car Seat to check out and though my littlest one will not be in this for a bit still, wanted to let you all know about it because my daughter who is 7, CAN be in this car seat. The harness fits a child up to 9.5 years of age.
This combination harness to booster car seat is a very sturdy (metal reinforced deep side wings), strong car seat and feels comfortable (cloud comfort memory foam) and also has mesh for breathability and temperature balancing fabrics . My husband and I really liked the handle at the top of this car seat, for easy pick up and carrying (the seat weighs 25 lbs). My husband wanted me to mention that!
Installing the RECARO Performance SPORT was very simple for my husband. He had it in very quickly. Maybe because he has been installing car seats for a while? Nah, it was pretty easy, he said!
The height, at maximum head restraint extension, is 25-30 inches. The child weight for using this car seat with the harness is 20-65 lbs (child height 27-49″) and can only be used forward facing, that is why my littlest cannot use this car seat yet. He needs to be rear facing for a bit longer! The booster part of this car seat can be used from 30-120 lbs (child height 37-59″). So, lots of use this car seat/booster seat will be getting!
The RECARO Performance SPORT Combination Harness to Booster Car Seat has new features like the HERO harness system technology and cloud comfort memory foam. HERO is a new and innovative safety feature by RECARO that ensures the highest level of protection and comfort by positioning the shoulder pads to (approximately), fit your child’s neck, head and shoulders. This also helps to prevent harness twisting and ensures proper chest clip positioning.
I like how the RECARO Performance SPORT Combination Harness to Booster Car Seat has a safety stripe system. It is a racing-inspired white stripe that is clearly visible on the outside edge of the 5-point harness and is designed as an easy alert to parents, that a twist could occur or has begun. This helps prevent a safety hazard. This is a great feature and is very helpful.
Some other features that are worth mentioning is the side cup holders and stylish trim details on the seat. I also am rest assured that this car seat has the Side Impact Protection technology that is inspired by four decades of racing seat safety!
