Booster Seats

If your child is too big for a car seat and too small for a safety belt, a booster seat is probably the answer. Dr. Ricardo Martinez says motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of unintentional injury and death among children, but most can be prevented. According to the Insurance Information Institute, children between who weigh between 40 and 80 pounds cannot be properly secured in adult safety belts because the belt crosses their hips and necks in the wrong places. These children need booster seats. Bryan O'Neal of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says booster seats boost the child up just enough to make lap and should belts fit comfortably and properly.
