    Canada Car seat for tall 3 year old - Canada

    My 3 year old is 42 inches tall .. I'm trying to find a 5 point harness seat that is good for her . Most of descriptions on the seats I've been checking online only go by weight .or give a hight maximum for the booster using the car seat belt .. I really feel it is unsafe to have her in the car belt . Any type of advice would be appreciated .

    Good instincts - no 3 year old belongs in a booster!

    There are some that will last a good long while in harness mode. Can you give a few more details please? How much does she weigh? Is she long in the torso - what shirt size? Do you have a budget in mind? What do you drive? Is there anyone else in the back seat with her? What seat is she in right now?
