Did you know that Arizona’s Booster seat law is changing?
Starting August 2nd, children between 5 and 8 years old who are shorter than 4 feet 10 inches must be in a booster seat when riding in a car.
I have already started researching booster seats for Quinn. He is not quite five and is almost at the maximum weight on his Britax right now!
If you need to buy a booster seat, I recommend checking out Baby Cheapskate or Costco for a good deal.
Do you need help obtaining a booster seat?
