Car seats and winter jackets

We were told that we should not put a winter jacket on our 10 month old as it was not safe in a car seat. Just wondering what other people do as it gets pretty cold her in the winter!

Thanks in advance!

Snuggies and car seat ponchos. Also polar fleece is perfect we are from mn/nd and this is what we use in winter :)

Start car before you leave to get heat going. Put baby in carseat without coat. Either put coat on child reversed after you buckle them in or put a blanket over them.

It sucks as my dd was given 3 really nice jackets as gifts and I don't see her wearing them at all.

You can still use them. I always have a winter coat in the car for when I take them out of the seat in the winter. I have them in a fleece jacket with a blanket over the buckles for when we are driving. Then I just slip the coat on them when we get out.

We used a fleece jacket and a blanket. Start the car about 10 minutes before you leave.
