Child Safety Seats in Oregon

As my kids grow, I seem to always forget the requirements for the child safety seats.  I always find myself wondering, “Is Ali ready for a booster yet?” or “I left the booster in the car, can Hannah ride in the truck with just a seat belt?”  After doing a little bit of research, I’ve found the answers (for Oregon) and decided to put it here in order to refer back to it.

As of January 2012, in the state of Oregon, a child can move from a child seat to a booster when they reach 40 pounds.

A child that is in a booster can move to a normal seat with seat belt once they reach 4’9″ or 8 years old and the adult belt fits correctly.

So, there you have it.
