When are children big enough to sit in the seats?
Young children and infants should always be placed in child restraint systems. At a certain age and size, however, every child graduates to a normal seat. A child should meet the following specifications if they are to sit in a normal seat: 1. The shoulder strap should not dig into the child’s neck. 2. The child should be able to sit all the way back in the seat, and still bend their knees at the end of the seat. 3. The child should be old enough that they won’t fiddle with the seat belt or squirm in the seat while driving.
