Child. Age 3.5yrs. Mass law.   41.4 lbs  how much until she's out of a car seat and in a booster seat in back?

Booster seats: You can safely switch your child to a booster seat if she's at least 4 years old and she weighs 40 pounds or more or has grown too tall for her car seat (when her shoulders are higher than the top set of harness-strap slots in the car seat's back). ...Read more

My son,27,is entering law school and is told he needs a tetanus booster, but he is against it. Does he have to get it, & what are the odds of reaction?

My son,27,is entering law school and is told he needs a tetanus booster, but he is against it. Does he have to get it, & what are the odds of reaction?

Tetanus vaccine: What are his objections? Refer him to the CDC website for accurate information about vaccines, instead of some of the popular articles which are not scientifically based. A lawyer needs to know how to look at the evidence! If he's had the vaccine in the past, he's unlikely to have a problem with it. The TdaP vaccine protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis, all very serious diseases. ...Read more

When can I put my baby in a booster seat?

When can I put my baby in a booster seat?

Depends on child: The booster is designed so the waist belt does not ride up on the abdomen in a head on crash.These seats offer almost no protection in a side impact or roll over. We now have 5 point harness systems that protect better and fit kids up to 65-85 lb. I keep kids in a harness system as long as possible and use boosters for the 6-12yo. ...Read more

When is it safe for a child to stop using a booster seat in car? He is 8yrs old 77pounds

When is it safe for a child to stop using a booster seat in car? He is 8yrs old 77pounds

It is safe: Laws vary by state. I believe in Texas, children over the age of 8 can ride legally without a booster. In California the current laws is: ?Children under the age of 8 must be secured in a car seat or booster seat in the back seat. Children who are 8 years of age OR have reached 57" in height, may ride in the back with a seat belt. ...Read more

What is the height and weight for a child to go from an infant seat into a high back booster seat?

Depends: Each restraint system has a sticker on the body that details the ht &weight range for the seat. Kids should rear face until @ least 2y or longer to protect their neck from spinal cord injury. Boosters with improved integrated 5 pt harness are available up to 60-85 lb which remain the best protection in a roll over or t bone crash. You never get to pick your type of crash. ...Read more

When will my baby be able to sit in a booster seat at the dinner table?

When will my baby be able to sit in a booster seat at the dinner table?

6 months: Your baby can join you at the table now (in a bouncy seat or carseat), but they won't be able to sit well in a high chair until at least 6 months of age. It'll be even longer before they no longer need a high chair and it depends on how tall they are and how tall your table is. ...Read more

Child safety harness with booster seat - is it better to use or not to use?

Child safety harness with booster seat - is it better to use or not to use?

Pick your crash ??: The 5 point restraint belts are now available in safety seats up to 80+ pounds from some sources. These systems offer the broadest range of protection from rollover, side impact, front or rear impact crashes. Simple boosters offer little protection during rollover or side impact events. I go for the best possible protection, since no one can pick their crash. ...Read more

Are booster seats necessary?

Are booster seats necessary?

Cut the risk: The use of belt positioning booster seats have been shown to cut the risk of injuries by half. Fancy aftermarket neck pads or belt adjusters may increase a passenger's risk of injury. Early use of an adult belt is better than no restraint at all because it prevents ejection from the vehicle.However, severe injuries can result when the belt jumps over the pelvis & impacts the abdomen. ...Read more
