Does your baby wear a coat in his or her carseat?

He does now. When he was in an infant seat I had one of those sacks that covered the whole seat, so he didn't need a coat then.

Nope, never. We bundle him up to and from the car, but it comes off before he gets strapped in.

I'm guilty of doing it with a puff vest on but I know you aren't suppose to. I have started to stop the habit but I've done it.

Yes. But it's a thin fleece coat.

No, both my almost 3-yr- old and 6 1/2 year old- both in harnessed car seats wear either a fleece or thin windbreaker ( one of layered coat) with a head and sit in a heated car and use blankets. We just bring the coat along for if they play outside.

Hat not head.

Yes, but the only one who has  "puff" coat is DD. Everyone else is in carseats and has fleece layers. I'll dress the baby in sleeves, a fleece jumper, and a fleece coat, then if it's really cold out I'll wrap him in blankets to anf from the car.

Yes mine did. It gets in the teens with the windchill. We don't have a garage. Our car didn't have remote start.

When mine were babies they always wore coats in car seats.
