This is my Goddaughter and the Mother of two of my Great Nephews. Please read for your babies sakes.
1. Children should stay rear-facing until the age of 2 OR until they meet the height and weight limits of the car seat.
2. Children older than 2 (or larger than the height/ weight limits of their seat) should ride in a forward-facing car seat with a 5-point harness, until they reach the height/weight limits for that seat.
3. All children whose weight or height is above the forward-facing limit for their car seat should use a Belt-Positioning Booster Seat until the vehicle seat belt fits properly, typically when they have reached 4 feet 9 inches in height and are between 8 and 12 years of age.
4. When children are old enough and large enough to use the vehicle seat belt alone, they should always use Lap and Shoulder Seat Belts for optimal protection.
5. All children younger than 13 years should be restrained in the rear seats of vehicles for optimal protection.

Elisa Willoughby Most interesting one there, in my opinion:
“Child restraint devices are required for children through the age of seven (until 8th birthday). Safety seats must be properly used and approved by Department of Transportation standards. There is no height or weight requirement associated with this law. The Virginia law is based solely on age. “
