If your 5 year old is slight, you should still get a few years out of a convertible for him. Is there another child you can then pass it on to?
My son uses a dedicated booster (the Infa Secure) in my parent's car, and I'm comfortable with that. But , in our car, I want to keep him in a 5-point harness for as long as I can get away with it.
We have 2 other children who will also get use out of it. Our son uses a dedicated booster in my mil's car also. I agree that a 5-point harness best for our car too.
Thanks for the other suggestions. I will look into them.
Does anyone know which of the seats listed below has the highest shoulder straps, thereby allowing my son to remain in 5-point harness for the longest amount of time:
-SNS Maxi Rider 2
-Babylove Ezy Combo
