My son just turned 6 last week. He is 50 lbs and I can't remember his height...46 inches? OMG...I'm so bad! lol I'lll know next week when I take him for his yearly checkup. Anyways, he's begging to get out of his car seat and I'm not sure what the law is as far as this is concerned. I'm fairly sure it has to do with height/weight and age. Can anyone help me out? I don't know if laws very state to state...we're in NY. Thanks for the help!

Here is a link to NY dmv website: http://www.nydmv.state.ny.us/DMVfaqs.htm#carseat
It states that children 4, 5, and 6 MUST ride in child restraint systems.
That to me must mean car seat/booster seat. Mine are in a BOOSTER seat that allows them to buckle up like a "bigger" kid! They are actually in this booster seat (see the link that follows): http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2861774
I don't know what you are using now, but perhaps an upgrade to an "bigger" kid booster seat may make him fell more "grown up".... Espeically see the booster seats allow them to use the seat belt like big kids!!

Next question overall
Should parents have access to their kid's email account?
