Quoting Reise's Mommy:" I thought they had to be 4 to be in a booster... Regardless of what the age requirement is 2.5 is too young."
Quoting Moses.:" It is 4 AND 40 pounds, by most booster seat's label and most state laws. A 5 point harness is the safest until age 6. My oldest was one until she was 8."
Quoting Uncle Obama's Banana:" Thanks guys, that's what I thought. It seems that most of my friends really don't know carseat safety. ... [snip!] ... almost 3 (in April) and she is still in her myride65 but she is tiny so I didn't know if it was just for the weight or not..."
Quoting Reise's Mommy:" DS is almost 2 and is still rear facing. He just maxed out his infant seat limits not very long ago ... [snip!] ... pounds now, so he'll be that way for a while. I don't know why people want to push their kids into less safe seats so early "
Quoting Moses.:" Because it is viewed as a "right of passage" thing. I used to think it was as well. My oldest was put ... [snip!] ... her out of it because my 5 yr old needed the Nautilus and my youngest needed the Radian. She went into a highback booster. "
Quoting Socialist:" Are you going to say anything?"
Quoting Uncle Obama's Banana:" I just posted a big car seat safety thing on my FB. Hopefully they all see it. I've seem multiple friends post scary pics "
Quoting Socialist:" I'd just comment on the picture, "Oh, wow, she's four now?! She looks so tiny!" Then once corrected, ... [snip!] ... tiny!" Then once corrected, "Oh. Those seats have an age limit - they can't be in them until they're four, so I just assumed.""
