Booster Seat

So, my child is no longer one of the 90% of children in the U.S. who should be using a booster seat and are not. Tyler is 6 years old and Nevada law specifies that all children under 6 years old and weighing 60 pounds or less must be secured in child restraint system while being transported in motor vehicle. So, we had been just buckling him up, but when I heard that the federal government recommends that children under 4'9" tall should ride with a booster seat and that children prematurely moved to seat belts are 4 times more likely to suffer serious head injuries during a collision than children in child safety or booster seats – well, we did what we thought was best and moved him back into a booster!
