I can't find anywhere on the net that says either way. I did find something that said use a newer booster and described the kind with just the seat, not the thing across the front, but that seemed more for extra safety than law. If this booser is pretty old, then it is probably a better idea to buy a new one especially if you bought it used. It usually isn't a good idea to buy used carseats. If they have been in an accident, they may have been damaged without the previous owner even knowing. My suggestion is to buy a new one. Or go to your local fire department and have your old one checked out. Most fire departments have free monthly car seat safety checks.

No!!! These NO LONGER meet safety standards and are EXTREAMLY dangerous!! Children suffer major injuries and even death in these seats (known as shield booster seats). Many children slip out from under the shield or are thrown into it at a high rate of speed during a crash, causing neck and spinal cord injuries, head injuries, and several deaths.

Boosters with shield are NOT safe! In addition, the shield WAS to be used only until 30 pounds. It IS safe, however to continue to use the seat WITHOUT the shield (only if the shield can be completely removed - some were attached). The purpose of a booster is to position a child so that the vehicle seat belt fits properly - low across thighs and across shoulder, therefore, the base of a shield booster is acceptable. I recommend for the 5 step booster test and other child restraint info. NE CPS TECH

Is it safe to take testosterone boosters while you are on Nasacort AQ?

1st Answer Testosterone boosters are not safe and must be supervised and indicated by a doctor. 2nd A: All though both are steroids, they affect different areas of the body on first summation I would say no, there should not be issues. Nasacort AQ is one of the cleanest nasal steroids with the fewest side effects. Contact the Manufacturer of the testosterone boosters and ask them for certainty. After years of personal experience and a healthy knowledge of the allergy products, I have never come across a medicine that someone would have to stop while using Nasacort AQ!

Who makes a wider backless booster seat for children 80-100 pounds?

There are a few seats on the market that will probably fit your child. You might try the Jupiter Komfort Kruiser as it has a base that is 19.5 in wide. Also Britax has just released a new seat called the Body Guard that has an adjustable base. I'm not sure what it is at its widest point however. It's worth check out though if you have a local Babies R Us store. You won't find either of these seats in stores like Wal-Mart of Target. You will have to hit a baby specialty store or Babies R Us. Ordering online will likely save you some money too. Lastly I want to give you the 5-step test to see if your child is ready for a seat belt only. Remember that just because the law says he doesn't have to be in a booster anymore doesn't mean he is safe not being in one. If your answer is no to any of these questions they are NOT ready for a seat belt only..... � When your child can sit all the way back and your child's knees bend easily over the edge without any slumping � The lap belt must be low and flat across the lower hips / upper thighs, not the stomach � The shoulder belt should lie across the middle of the shoulder and chest. Never place shoulder belt behind the arm. � Can ride this way the whole trip. !! Jen E, Child Passenger Safety Technician and mom to 3 in seats!! "Same situation since Illinois has changed its law (children up to 8yrs old in a restraint). My questions are: Does the booster have to have back support for larger/older children or can it be "backless" and who makes a wide backless seat? " Kim, a backless booster is fine AS LONG as you have head support from either a high seat back or head rests in the seating position your child is sitting in. If you do not, then a high back is needed. For wide backless boosters, try the Cosco High Rise, Britax Roadster (no longer manufactured, but can be found. It comes in a high back, but the back may be removed and used backless), Evenflo Right Fit. HTH!! Jen E- Cert. Child Passenger Safety Tech and mom to 3 in seats!
