Thanks for the links. Some of the information is chilling. I also ran into a site that shows pics of older children in seats and I showed my daughter. She now knows that she is not alone and that I'm not the only evil mom in America.

as far as an airplane goes, I couldn't even fit the seat into the airplane. We took a Marathon on the plane when ethan was 18 months. The seat itself touched the seat in front of us and his knees were in his face. It didn't work out at all. so the idea of a carseat on a plane for a toddler is a nice idea, but physicaly doesn't work sometimes.

What kind of plane was it? I have taken DDs Britax Decathlon (same shell size as Marathon) on lots of planes and it has fit on all of them with no problem.

DD is 39" tall with pretty long legs. She never complained about being squished or uncomfortable.
This is her on a 747


And on an itty bitty plane

(no snark, that info was great, just something I've always wondered) The back would jut make a child sit more forward, not changing the belt position at all. Right?
I know I am a little late on this thread, but everything I have read says that backless boosters ARE safe when used CORRECTLY, only if the child's ears are not above the back of the car's seat. However... i would never use one. Just my preference

Yes it's at or just below for RF... at or just above for FF.

My Graco came with a strap that goes up the child's back and the seatbelt ran through a little clip-thingie and is supposed to position it correctly on the shoulder. This is one that you could use as a backless or a HB booster... BUt as I said before, I'd never use the backless.

Yes! This is what I was referring to.

I will keep these links as a reference to certain family member's who snicker at me with my anal retentiveness with carseats Thanks for posting them.

Thank you so much for this thread! I am a new mom but have many neices and nephews. I never knew they should have been riding much safer all along. My ped even said 1 yr and 20 lbs! Now my baby will be rear facing as long as possible to keep her as safe as possible.

my ped said the same thing but when i brought up the new AAP recs they said as long as it was comfortable is what mattered. needless to say i just said fine and let it go

Jessica, I'm not really sure why you say you'd never use a backless...? Once a child outgrows a highback, the backless is often a better choice than the vehicle belt for a while yet. Depends on the child, but I've known quite a few that still didn't fit just right in the vehicle belt after they outgrew the highback.
