Children from birth to at least 12 months and at least 20 pounds need to be in a rear-facing infant seat. Keep your child rear-facing as long as the car seat allows.
From 13 months to age four, kids need to be in a child car seat with a five-point harness.
Up to 4’9” tall kids need to be in a booster seat. Boosters should only be placed with a lap and shoulder belt.
And kids up to age 13 must ride in the rear seat of the vehicle.
That’s Washington’s law.
