As kids get older and bigger they start yearning to get rid of their booster seat and even begin dreaming of sitting in the front seat of the car. It is important for parents to resist and keep their children buckled safely in a booster seat until they grow big enough to meet the mandated age and height requirements. These mandates are in place to keep children safe, and in most states it requires children to be at least 8 years old or 4’9” in height before riding without a booster in a vehicle.
Older children prefer a backless booster because it offers them the comfort and support of a booster without the bulky backing strapping them in. One of the best backless booster seats is the GoFit Plus Booster Car Seat by Graco. This booster seat keeps kids safe in the car while still being comfortable to sit in. The seat is contoured and supportive with double foam padding to keep kids happy. Parents like that it installs and uninstalls easily with push-on LATCH connectors and a one-handed tightening strap.
