Do you know what age limit is required for booster seats? Or that different U.S. states may have different safety laws? Starting January 1, a new Child Passenger Safety law in California will require all children to remain in booster seats until they are eight years old or at least 4'??9'? tall.
5 states including my own, New York, have seat belt requirements for school buses. To know the laws in your state, visit Governors Highway Safety Association.
Regardless of your state'??s laws, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) actually recommends children remaining in booster seats up to age 12. Booster seats ensure that the belt fits properly and comfortably across a child's shoulder and breastbone, and correctly positions the lap portion of the belt across the top of a child'??s legs.
Evenflo has a wide range of booster seats ranging from harnessed to belt-positioning in high back and no-back to meet the needs and personalities of pre-school and school-aged children who may be reluctant about sitting in a booster seat. The new SecureKid 300 and 400 models, Big Kid High Back and Amp High and No-back seats blend fashion and function. We love the hot-pink color. Because everyone knows a good-looking seat gets fewer groans.
Here's information on two Evenflo models you might want to consider.
