Booster Car Seats – When to Use Them

Posted by Ronald James on September 5, 2017 in Parenting |

Parents are always concerned about the safety of their kids. Car designers may overlook some features important for the safety of children. So, if you have to travel with your little one, it is wiser to opt for the booster car seat and ensure the utmost care and safety for her.


When your baby has outgrown the current car seat, you can think about seating her in a booster car seat. Studies have proven that a kids using booster car seats suffer less injury during a crash as compared to a child who sits in the care of a car’s regular seat belt.


The booster seats are designed to raise the child’s seat so that you can use the car’s seat belt. The booster seats provide you the right guidance with red indicators to secure the seat belts for the ideal safety of your kid. You can do so with two indicators – one at shoulder height going diagonal and another going at waist height.

You must always ensure that, when using booster car seats, you must keep seat belts as tight as possible so that it gives full protection. You can put booster car seats both in the front and the back, but I always keep it in the rear, as an additional protection is possible with the passenger airbags.


Booster car seats can be used for children who are in the age group of 4 – 11 years. Like other parents, I also prefer using booster car seats for my kids as they provide an extended level of protection. There is no doubt that booster car seats are a better option, even though it may take up a lot of space in your car.


When I went to select a booster seat for my daughter, I checked with my car dealer to recommend a few good models that are complementary to the convertible car seat I bought. If your car supports Isofix booster seats, then it is best option to buy. Isofix booster seats are designed with attachments built in a way to fit into your car’s isofix anchorage. You can also choose booster seats with a high back. High back booster seats provide extra protection for your child’s head. High back booster seat comes with headrest so that your child can keep his head safely and enjoy long travels.

Getting a booster car seat is a better option if you have a life in the fast lane. You might be a careful driver, but you can’t say the same for others. With kids in tow it is always be extra careful with safety measures while traveling.
