Consumer Reports Combination Car Seat Report

We maintain that age is the best determinant of when a child is ready to move to a booster seat, not weight. We stand by the industry standards.  NHTSA requires that today’s car seats meet or exceed Federal Safety Standard 213 and all car seats, including the ones mentioned in the Consumer Reports article, meet or exceed that standard.
We absolutely respect what Consumer Reports is trying to do with this reporting but we’re not so fond of the fear-provoking headlines.
