    I've seen some above average "regular person" usage, but this takes the cake!

    So, I've witnessed a non-c-s.org member rfing a 4yo, and I've witnessed several other 2+yo rfers that were children of average joes, but when I spoke w/ my boss ttoday, I fell in love.

    She called me b/c her SIL was told by her pd that her 2.5yo could be boostered. She knew I'd know for sure, but she thought he couldn't/shouldn't be. As a result I found out how she's got her 9yo, 7yo, and 4yo in her van. (I've learned that most "friends" don't listen real well so I've not tried before.)

    Anyone care to guess?

    There is a lady at my work that has both her children (6 & 8) in Graco HBB. She's likely the only one besides me who seems to care about car seat safety!

    no, that is tooo good to be true

    The 9yo had gotten too tall for the hbb and the 7yo just outgrew the harness. She'll be 8 in 2m and he'll be 10 in 3m.

    I was going to guess something similar My neighbor down the road just turned her 3 yo FFing. There is only one other person I know IRL that has ERF. The other is a mother at DD's gymnastics who has a DS that just turned 2 and is RFing.
