  • Depends on the seat and the weight of the child.

  • It varies. I am not putting my youngest son in a booster until he has completely outgrown his car seat. He is 13 months and still rear faces. I will keep him harnessed until he is 5 years old. After that he will be in a regular booster seat.

  • it depends on your state law requirements. here, i think the child must be atleast 3 years and 40 inches (and i think a certain weight too, 30 pounds i believe)

  • 4 years and 40 pounds is the minimum for most boosters, however depending on the seat, you can keep your child harnessed until 80+ pounds.
