The most dangerous car seat MISTAKES:
Moving a child less than 1 year PLUS 20 pounds to forward facing. Keeping them rear facing even to 18 months is better. If you child is 9 months and 25 pounds they must still be REAR facing. If your child is 15 months and 18 pounds they must still be REAR facing
Taking a child out of 5 point harness before they are 4 years PLUS 40 pounds. And the car seat must be TOP tethered into your car. Car seat belts can fail. The tether protects your child. The BRITAX car seat has a 5 point harness that goes to 65 pounds.
Leaving a child in a regular 5 point harness after 40 pounds. Only the BRITAX car seat harness can go beyond 40 pounds. Using a regular car seat with harness after 40 pounds put your child at risk for it breaking. If you child is over 40 pounds but under age 5 get the BRITAX car seat with stronger harness.
Taking a child out of a booster seat before 6 years PLUS 60 pounds (some states say 8 years PLUS 80 pounds). Actually it is recommended that a child stay in a booster seat until they are 4 foot 8 inches in order to have a regular seat belt fit them safely.
