Do you get sad when your child outgrows a carseat?  Maybe they are moving on from rear-facing to forward-facing and you lament about the reduction in safety?  Perhaps the carseat was a sentimental favorite?  Or maybe you’re happy because you’ve always hated the fashion on the carseat or were looking for an excuse to buy something new?

My son has been mainly riding in boosters for some time.   He’s over 9 years old and is now over 4 feet, 7 inches tall and nearly 80 pounds.  He’s just about to outgrow the tallest combination seat on the market in 5-point harness mode, the Britax Frontier 90 (or Pinnacle 90).  His days as a CarseatBlog model are numbered.  I am sad, but he sure is happy!
