By booster seat, I mean the seat you put in the car. My son will be 4 in March and weighs 36 pounds (possibly more since he hasn't been weighed in a while), so I'm wondering if he's almost ready for one.Answer Question

I noticed when I was shopping around for booster seats, different brands had different requirements. One would say "such and such height and such and such weight", the next one I looked at would be different. I just picked out a carseat based on the height and weight requirements.

just looked up my state laws, and am disappointed that there is no mandatory law in place for booster seats, just "strongly suggested", however, it is mandatory for adults to wear seatbelts. kind of stupid, isn't it?
our law states children 3 and under must be in the appropriate safety seat. 4 and up "should" sit in a carseat with and wear a seatbelt, but not required.
my 4 year old is in a booster seat. i plan to leave her in it for a few more years.
