  • Most states it is 4 YEARS AND 40LBS. I wouldnt even consider it though at less than 6 years old going full time in a booster. Sure, strapping them in takes a few extra seconds, but it is SO worth the safety. Most kids arent mature enough to sit right in a seat belt younger than 6. You are trusting them with their own life. Better safe than sorry.

  • It depends on the booster seat. You'll have to read the box, or the tag if you already have one. Our backless boosters say at least 30lbs.

  • Most boosters say they have to be 30-40lbs. Most laws say they have to be in a harness type seat until they are 4 or 40lbs.
    We kept our kids in the 5pt harness until they were 40lbs (or close to it). That was when my oldest was almost 7, my son was 3 1/2, my middle daughter was 5. Our youngest is 3 1/2 now and in a booster but still using the 5pt harness in it. She's only like 32lbs so has a couple years before she will be big enough to use it as a booster.
