No puffy coats or snow suits in the carseats! This is why! Fleece, carseat ponchos, coats on backwards, or blankets!

Drive without speeding, texting, or talking on the cellphone and the kids should be ok!

He had on a fleece snowsuit, so apparently not even the guidelines you listed are enough.

It neg here. Even once your in a car that has been running its still bitter cold.

Quoting Anonymous:

Coats are to be worn outside. So again I will not be taking their coats off of them for any reason in 0 degree weather.


Quoting Anonymous:

Mine put their coats on backwards after they have buckled. They don't freeze. It's not all that hard to do.



Quoting Anonymous:

whatever! I have been doing it for 13 years and have somehow managed to keep my kids alive. They will not sit in the car and freeze AND I will not let my vehicle run, that as is expensive! If you think that letting your child freeze their ass off is good for you so be it but I will not be removing their coats.

Did you really just make that comment? Well, here is one for you genius. They will still freeze with just a blanket because at some point you will have to unwrap them to put them in their seats. Dumbass!
