How long did you keep your preschooler in a 5 point harness and when did you move them to a booster seat? My daughters are 36 pounds and will be 4 next month and I am getting a lot of push back about keeping them in a 5 point harness.
cameron will be 5 the end of may, is 40 lbs 40 inches and still is in a 5 point harness
My son is 4-1/2 45 lbs and 42 inches. He is still in a 5 pt harness.
Fathead is 5 and 39 lbs, so nowhere near ready to be out of hers.
OK, so I'm not overprotective!
My son will probably still be RF when he turns 4 lol
Ds1 turned 6 yesterday. He is 49in & 48lbs & still harnessed in a graco nautalis with room to grow.
Quoting Tickledpinktwice:" See that is what I mean, if they haven't outgrown it, why should I switch?"
yea thats my thinking no need to switch when he still fits comfortably in his
My daughter is almost 5, but she's 39 pounds and still in hers.

You don't. They are your kids & it's your perogative to keep them as safe as possible.
Ryan just turned 7 and in the first grade and still in a 5 point 95% of the time
(he has a high back booster in the extra car that my husband drives to work)
He has no complaints about it. :)
ETA: He is 48lbs
DD just turned 4 and we just got a Britax Frontier so that we could keep her harnessed for longer
I think there's always someone who's going to give you crap for your decisions if it isn't the same as theirs. I hear stuff every so often about the twins still being RFing now that their one, but they haven't even hit 20lbs yet either.. which I'd prefer to keep them RFing as long as I can lol
