    I'd let Sofi give it a try sometimes if she was closer to 40 pounds. She'll be 5 in a couple weeks and has finally made it to 35.

    I let Ilana ride sometimes too. She just hit 40# but I think it's important to know how to sit right just in case. DH doesn't normally put harnessed seats in his truck so she'd need to know how to ride in there.
