Once children have outgrown the weight limit of their car seat, they will need to switch to a booster seat until they are four feet, nine inches or taller -- otherwise the seat belt will not be positioned correctly. Laws differ from state to state, but 28 states require kids to be in a booster seat until they are 8 years old. Check the laws for your specific state at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Even if it's not required by law, it's a good idea to keep your child in the back seat and in a booster seat until the seat belt fits properly.
If you don't see your particular brand of booster seat on this list, check the IIHS booster evaluation list. They also list booster seats that were "Good Bets" (we listed just the "Best Bets") and other tested seats.
