Winter Car Seat Safety

Please remember that winter coats are NOT safe under carseat straps! All that bulk will compress in an accident, and your child could fly right out of their seat. Use a thin but warm fleece, warm your car up first if possible, cover them with a blanket, or put their coat on backwards after their strapped in so their arms are kept warm. It's worth the effort!

I totally get what you mean...but the picture on the right, the coat doesnt look thick at all...its just those strap covers that keep the chest clip from being in the correct spot.

I thought the same thing. The reccomendation is for big poofy winter coats the compress during an accident and then create a gap between the child and the harness. The "coat" that baby is wearing isn't one that qualifies. Take away those stupid strap covers and the baby on the right would be fine. What she's wearing is the equivelent of a fleece jacket, not a winter coat.

The baby on the left needs a hat.
