Car Seat Advice

I know it is frowned upon for a child 4-8 years to be in a untethered booster over a fully harnessed seat. But I have a dilemma where by my child is almost outgrown there compq car seat and to date I have not been able to find a suitable replacement seat. Would anyone have a car seat recommendation that is the same as the compq where there is no adjustable head rest

Look up kidsafe in your state, they should be able to help

I think it's 145 cm (not sure of weight), rather than age. It's to do with not slipping out of the seatbelt in an impact.
Google it. I found a 'Britax safe n sound Kid guard' - up to 10 years of age (most are 8) by searching 'larger booster seats'. There were others as well.
