Determining when your child is ready for a booster seat is often something parents, including myself, neglect. Once my eldest outgrew his car seat, we bought a booster seat for him. He struggled with the adult safety belt in the back seat constantly moving over his neck and face which caused him discomfort. I made him live with it, as there was no way I would let him sit without one.
I’m a complete stiffler for kids being strapped in. I must admit, I didn’t do much research and went for the most affordable option when selecting a booster seat for him, as car seat safety to me meant having a seatbelt on and that was it.
When Mandy from Pregnant in Cape Town asked me to join the #CarseatFullstop campaign, I had a huge mind set change. After reading countless articles regarding car seat safety and the devastating stats, I knew that things had to change. Danny’s safety while driving in the car meant moving him to an appropriate booster seat.
But how do you know when your child is ready for a booster seat and what does a booster seat do?
