Car Seat and Booster Seat Safety for Kids
2 of 9
Transitioning from Forward-Facing to Booster Seats
Older children who've outgrown front-facing car seats should ride in a booster seat with a high back until they are at least 4 foot, 9 inches, and 8-12 years old. The shoulder lap belt should fit before they make the transition out.
All kids should ride in the back seat until they are at least 13 years old.
