I tell my seven year old she doesn't have to use a car seat.

Posted by   + Show Post

She is a big girl now.


OK so I looked up what the restrictions were and my poor tall seven year old is still only 50 lbs.


Montana Child Car Seat Laws

  • Kids under six or weighing less than 60 pounds must ride in a federally-approved safety seat or booster.
  • All other riders, regardless of age, must use a seat belt.

If you're in the market for one, you can shop online for a child car seat at any time. When ordering, be sure the car seat matches your child's height, weight and age.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

Yes actually they should.  The new recommendations are 5pt harness till 8yrs old.  All new car seats are now being made to 5pt harness to 90lbs.

Quoting thetrollcat:

at seven years old? I dont think so

Quoting fullxbusymom:

Yes they should still be in a 5pt harness.
