Always refer back to the manufacturer's guide for exact recommendations. Children should always ride in the back seat while in a car seat or booster.
- Infant up to the age of 2 (or weight and height requirements are met)
- Straps fit snug against thin layer of clothing
- Do not place anything behind the back. Can support legs underneath to prevent slouching down.
- Children are flexible and if too long for the seat but not heavy enough, they will find a comfortable position before making the transition to forward facing.
- Typically up to the weight of 65 lbs.
- Do not allow toddlers to unbuckle when the car is in motion. Pull car over to a safe area if they do to place them safely back in their seat.
- Up until the height of 4 feet 9 inches.
- Can have a back or be backless.
- Shoulder strap of seat belt to stay across the chest.
- Can ride in the front seat if above 4 feet 9 inches and above 130 lbs.
- Must wear the shoulder strap portion of the seat belt.
- Do not allow them to ride in the back of pick up trucks.
