    Default Car seat for 3-4 year old

    Can I use just a booster seat for a nearly 4 year old for very short journeys that won't be regular? I find the laws a bit unclear!

    The law on car seats has just changed...it was on the news the other day and , apparently, most parents are really not sure about the rules.
    I would google ROSPA and look at their checklist for car seats...or just google 'children's car seats' and lots of info will come up.

    This is the law:

    https://www.gov.uk/child-car-seats-the-rules

    It is based on weight, not age:

    Child’s weight Car seat
    9kg to 18kg Rear or forward-facing baby seat
    15kg to 25kg Rear or forward-facing child seat (booster seat)
    Over 22kg Booster cushion

    Or follow manufacturer's instructions

    If they weigh over 15kg then yes, but the advice is to wait until they are nearer 18kg
