Best Booster Seats Banner Image

We’ve rounded up a list of companies who make it a priority to manufacture some of the best booster seats on the market today.

Safety First

Rules about when to move to a booster seat vary slightly from province to province, but in general, your child is ready if they’ve outgrown their current seat and they:

  • weigh between 40-80 pounds;
  • are no taller than 4 feet 9 inches and;
  • are under the age of 8.

Confirm your province or territory’s regulations in this up-to-date list from The Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada. CPSAC, CAA, St. John Ambulance and other organizations host child seat clinics at various locations across the country. It’s worth attending one because an improperly installed seat is a lot like having no seat at all.

Car booster seats can be backless or have a high back. If your car doesn’t have a headrest in the back seat, choose a high-back booster. Otherwise, you can go with a backless booster seat if your child’s ears aren’t higher than the head restraint, to protect their neck and head. Use a shoulder belt with the booster seat and fit it snugly across your child’s hips and chest. The car booster seat manual and your vehicle’s manual offer instructions, too.

Keeping your precious cargo safe is your number one concern, and it’s also the primary focus of Walmart’s partners in booster seat manufacturing. Get to know some of the companies who make these important travel seats, accessories and other child-focused products. You’ll see that they’re serious about keeping your child secure and making life on the go easier for you and your family.
