  • My state is 36lbs, and I believe over 36inches...but like with any car seat read the specifics. Plus with the push for extended rear facing you may want to wait as long as possible for this switch as well.

  • It depends on your state laws, not just the minimums of the seat.

  • I don't know if all the states are the same. Just look up the laws for your state online.

  • Where I am it is 40 pounds to get into a booster, tho nowdas most use a 5 pt harness for as long as the seat will allow...that all depends on the seat tho. I kept ds in a 5 pt harness till just a few months ago, at almost 6! :) he is only around 45 pounds.
