Maxi-Cosi and Child Passenger Safety Week
Child Passenger Safety Week is an important topic, one that I hold dear with my children, and it is the perfect time for my readers and I to brush up on booster seat safety.
Most parents know that it’s safer for older children to ride in boosters—in fact 4-5 year olds using booster seats have a 67% reduction in fatality risk vs. other 4-5 year olds riding unrestrained. What some parents may not know is what booster seat laws apply to them, as they vary by state and can be pretty confusing. For example, in some states all children under 8 years old must be restrained in a booster, and other states only require children to 4 years old to use one. Although the AAP recommends that children ride in booster until the age of 12 or 57’, only 13% of children 54-56” do.
Stay tuned for a complete review of the new Maxi-Cosi RodiFix Booster Seat.
