Happy New Year! I am back after a few weeks off…well sort of, as taking care of 3 little ones isn’t really “time off” but we had some fun and exciting times. Along with the New Year, we have a new law in the state of Florida pertaining to young children and car seats.
My son excited about being in his car seat.
As of January 1st, children are required to be seated in a booster up to their 6th birthday. Previously, the law was up to age 4. The new law does not take height and weight into account, however it may be a good idea for parents to consider this before removing the booster at the age of 6. AAA actually recommends for boosters to be used until a child reaches 4’9″. Furthermore, it’s important to make sure that the seatbelt is placed correctly on your child. So if a booster is needed to get the appropriate fit, then it’s better to continue using the booster despite the current law.
