The recommended weight is 40 pounds. But the American Association of Pediatrics recommends the following as a guide:

Infants:

Type of Seat

All infants should always ride rear-facing until they are at least 1 year of age and weigh at least 20 pounds.

Toddlers/Preschoolers

School-aged children

Booster seats are for older children who have outgrown their forward-facing car safety seats. Children should stay in a booster seat until adult belts fit correctly (usually when a child reaches about 4' 9" in height and is between 8 and 12 years of age).
