Car Seat

Jump to last reply

We will be driving across Austria, Czech Republic, Italy and maybe Germany for around 12 days.

My daughter is 4 years and 1 month old, 3'4" and weighs around 13.5-14 kgs. Yeah, she is a noodle :)

We had a Forward facing Group 1 seat where she stopped fitting into the integrated harness almost 6 months back. It has provisions to be used like a booster seat where we use the car's adult seat belt through the seat belt's loop near her right ear.

The second car has a Group 2 booster seat which uses only the car's adult seat belt.

The EU rules seem to be a tricky as the Group 1 seat with integrated harness is recommended for upto 15 kgs (says 9m to roughly 4 years)

Am I allowed to use a booster (Group 2) for my daughter or do I risk a fine? I am almost sure she will not fit into a Group 1 seat and using its integrated harness - what should I do?
