Should you use age or weight as determining factor for use of car seat?
My daughter is turning 8 in a few weeks but she is still under 50 pounds (though she is quite tall for her age). Should we keep her in the car seat until she is at least 60 pounds, even though she meets the legal and recommended age requirements?
She really wants to get rid of her booster seat, but I'm inclined to keep her in it until she's at least 60 pounds. Am I being unnecessarily cautious? Is her height and age sufficient for the seat belt to work properly? Or is weight the most important factor for safety with a seat belt?
