When To Use Booster Seat For Your Child.

BOOSTER seats can help keep older children safer before they're ready for safety belts.

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers this advice:

A child should not be moved to a booster seat until he or she has outgrown a child safety seat.

A belt-positioning booster seat helps a seat belt fit a child safely.

Booster seats are usually suggested for children between ages 4 and 8 who weigh at least 40 pounds and are no more than 4 feet 9 inches tall.

Booster seats are available in high back and low back forms.

A booster seat should never be used with only a lap belt.
