Seven Year Old's and Booster Seats?!

Posted by   + Show Post

Is your seven year old still in a booster seat? We're debating on if my daughter was ready to be out of hers...Thanks!

It is the law here the minimum age to be out of a booster is 8 years old, minimum height is 4'9 and minimum weight is 80 lbs....... DD is 7 and no where near the height/weight.  We did however promote her to a backless booster from a high back booster.

90% of the time. All the time until 7.5. He turns 8 next month and he's already 4'9", he fits the seatbelt perfect in my neighbor's van so he rides in there without a booster for the short carpool to the bus stop. But most 7 year olds should still be in a booster. DS is really tall for his age.

Our 8 year old is still uses a booster seat. She is pretty small for her age. She may be using a booster until she is 10 or older.

Yes, the weight limit is 120.


Quoting momtoBrenna:

Do you have an extended weight seat? Most of the ones that I have seen stop at 100 lbs for weight. 



Quoting PlaysAllDay:

My 8yo, 105#, 4'8 child is still in a booster. More than size matters. Sure she's huge but the seatbelt doesn't sit on her neck right yet. She'll be in a booster for a while. My 32# 6 yo Is still in a 5pt harness.

if he didn't have the seatbelt issue where it would go across his chest instead of his neck then my almost 9 yr old would be out of his but til then

Of course. Law is 8yrs old but she'll be in it until the seat belt fits properly.
