    high-back booster before 40 lbs.?

    I am just wondering about thoughts on putting a thin older child under 40 lbs in a HBB if the seat is rated for it?

    In more detail, DD2 is 6yo, 36.8 lbs, 44 in., RF in a Radian/Rainier. She is hitting the stated height limit, though still has at least 2-3 in. on the shell. I told her she could FF at 6.5, which is when DD1 went into a Clek Oobr. I have a Volvo XC70, and don't think I will get a good fit on the Radian FF due to the headrests. The Oobr works well in the car. At this rate, it could be a while until DS2 is 40 lbs.

    Is that with or without shoes and clothing? I'd probably be ok moving to a highback booster rated below 40 pounds at 6.5. Depending on clothing or meals, she could be over on any given day.

    The weight is with clothes, without shoes. I'm not sure how quickly she will gain weight.
