Local and/or state laws regarding car seats and child restraint systems (booster seats).

New York's Occupant Restraint laws require the following:

  • Children up to the age of 4 must be properly restrained in a federally approved child safety seat that is attached to a vehicle by a seat belt or universal child restraint anchorage (LATCH) system.
  • Children less than age 4 but weighing more than 40 poundsmay be restrained in a booster seat with a lap/shoulder safety belt. However, a child safety seat that accommodates higher weights can be used.
  • Children ages 4, 5, 6 and 7 must be properly secured in an appropriate child restraint system, one for which the child meets the height and weight recommendations of the child restraint manufacturer.*
  • An appropriate child restraint system is one that meets the child's size and weight recommended by the manufacturer.
  • A vehicle's safety belt is NOT a child restraint system.
  • Children riding in booster seats must be secured with a combination lap/shoulder seat belt, NEVER secure a child in a booster seat with only a lap belt.
  • From the age of 8 until they reach their 16th birthday, children must be restrained in a seat belt whenever they ride in a vehicle. All Front seat passengers must be properly restrained at all times, regardless of age.
  • Children 12 years and younger should ride in the back seat. By simply buckling up your child in the back seat reduces his/her risk of death by 33%.

*It is recommended that booster seats be used until your child is 4 foot 9 inches tall or weighs 100 pounds.[/li][/list]


New Jersey law going into effect 9/1/2015

That's a pretty steep price.
20% off with Amazon Mom.
And worth every penny.

Britax seems to have the best reviews.
I don't like felt though and the only one they make free of felt is a BB&B exclusive.

We are very happy with our Britax B-Safe.  When purchased with the Britax B-Agile stroller (similar to the CityMini),  the package is 25% off at most places.  We like that the stroller is very maneuverable, and that it weighs only 17 pounds.  We just skipped buying a travel umbrella stroller.  The B-Safe car seat has an advantage of fitting in most cars.  For example, most larger car seats wouldn't fit in my wife's Ford Focus because they are too big.
