When is your child ready for a booster seat?

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.
