According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations’ Right Seat website, there are three factors specific to your child that go into choosing the appropriate seat – age, height, and weight.
Many people think that once their children outgrow baby car seats, they should begin to use the seat belts built into a vehicle. According to NHTSA, for their safety, many kids 8 to 12 years old still need to use a booster seat to allow the vehicle’s seat belts to fit properly. Make sure they ride in a booster seat until they outgrow the size limits of their booster, or until they are big enough for an adult seat belt to fit them properly.
