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

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

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 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

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

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

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

I used to sit my cellphone in my babies car seat and turn on white noise to help him sleep . Now I worry I exposed him to too much radiation! true?

Don't know yet...: Some studies suggest that there is an increased risk of brain tumors with excessive use of cell phones, while other studies do not agree. I think the jury is still out on whether this type of exposure can lead to any health problems. However, even if there is an increased risk, the overall risk of a problem because of this is still very low. ...Read more

If a child received 5 DTap doses (instead of the recommended 4) before age 3, do they require a booster at age 4-6?

If a child received 5 DTap doses (instead of the recommended 4) before age 3, do they require a booster at age 4-6?

Yes: You can consider the extra dose early just that, an extra dose. The development of immunity in the human system depends both on doses and the time interval for boosters. Depending on the age when given, some have a stronger response than others. Most infants have poor retained immunity for DTaP so it is given several times early on, with boosters beginning to spread out as they age. ...Read more

Child due for MMR booster next yr but I have measles should she get booster now?

Child due for MMR booster next yr but I have measles should she get booster now?

Can give early: You can give the measles shot portion of the MMR as young as 6 months if there is a high risk of the disease. See your doctor or health department. Your doctor may not carry just the measles shot. The child would still need the MMR at 1 year of age and a booster at 4-6 years. ...Read more
