Car Seat Cover

Although it’s cold outside, that doesn’t mean you’re going to stay indoors all winter. While you’re taking your baby out and about, you might not want to take them in and out of their infant car seat. Whether you’re carrying your baby in the infant car seat or using the travel system with the car seat, you’re going to want to keep it covered help shield your baby from the cold and the wind. One of the most important things you need to know when purchasing a winter car seat cover is to make sure that you do not get a cover that goes between the baby and the car seat itself as that can compromise the safety of the car seat. Here are our suggestions that will keep your baby both warm and safe in the car seat this winter.
