  • They need to be a certain age and weight. Keep them in the car seat as long as they fit the height and weight for it, especially if they are on the smallish side.

  • State law mandates that. They are trying to pass a federal law that states 36 inches tall and 40 lbs to be in a booster and then must be 4'9" to sit alone.

  • I think most states it's 4 years old and a certain weight and height.
