Car Seats - May 29th 2014, 10:44 AM

Mamma's I have a question. How big does a child need to be before they are removed from a high back booster and placed into one with just the arms that use the regular seat belt?

According to Babycenter, you can switch your child to a booster seat when they are 4 years old and weigh 40lbs or more, or when their shoulders are higher than the strap slots on the car seat. My boyfriends daughter, 4, is currently in a booster seat. She could have stayed in her car seat for a bit longer but she's on the chubbier side and the straps weren't fitting properly anymore.

I think it depends on the local laws. You might want to search for the laws in your area about car seat regulation.
