For kids who are at least 2 years old and have reached the maximum height or weight capacity of the car seat, they should ride rear-facing as long as possible, options are:
- Forward-facing seat: This can be used until your child weighs 40 to 60 pounds. (Most are convertible and fit to 40 pounds.)
- Combination seat: This functions with a harness until the child reaches 40 pounds. Remove the harness and it converts to a belt-positioning booster, which can be used for kids up to 80 pounds with your car's lap/shoulder belt.
