From Car Seat to Booster

Kids over 40 pounds should be in a booster

(HealthDayNews) -- How do you know when to move your child out of a car seat and into a booster? According to the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, you should use your child's weight as a guide.

Booster seats are designed for children who weigh more than 40 pounds. On average, a 40-pound child is about four years old.

Your child should stay in the booster until he or she weighs at least 60 pounds. Newer models protect kids up to 80 or even 100 pounds.
