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.

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 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

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

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
