Don't forget that the laws on car seats are changing this month, on September 18th.
Britax Kid Booster Seat

As previously featured on ThinkBaby when the regulations were announced in the spring, the key changes refer to the compulsory inclusion of booster seats for children under 12 years old. Previously, not all children older than toddlers had to travel with booster seats. However, there are exceptions. (If a child is travelling in a taxi for example. And in some cases it is a question of 'if available'.)

For the latest information about the law on restraint requirements for infants from birth upwards, check out and see the ThinkBaby article on car seat regulation changes.
