Child Restraint Safety Guidelines:
From birth to age 1 and at least 20 pounds, your child should be in a rear facing infant seat. A child should not be placed in a forward facing child seat until they are at least 1 year old and over 20 pounds. A belt positioning booster seat can be used for children age 4 to 8 years of age, 40 to 80 pounds and up to 4’9” tall. Booster seats must be used with a lap and shoulder belt. Never use a lap belt by itself, with a booster seat.
