With the cold weather upon us, it is time to start getting out the winter gear to wrap up everyone warm including baby. Things have changed so much since I had my first baby that some of the things we did when I had her, are no longer an option now. This is especially true when putting your baby or even older children into their car seats with winter gear on. Actually anything that adds any space between the child and the harness straps is not safe. I had no idea until about 6 years ago that this was even something to consider. I used a winter car seat cover that went into the seat with my older 3 and never thought anything of it and no one ever told me anything differently. My older kids also wore their winter jackets in their car seats, another big no no. The Petit Coulou keeps my littlest one warm and safe without compromising any safety features of his car seat.
Now I am more informed on car seat safety and my kids including the older ones, wear their winter coats to the car but take them off to buckle up. The same is true for my newborn. I dress him in regular clothing and then I use a great car seat cover from Petit Coulou. It acts like an igloo around baby to keep them warm during our cold winter months while only going on the outside of the car seat never touching baby or the harness straps.
It is rated to -25 which is amazing and since it’s mostly for travel to and from the car, I am sure that it will do the job in even colder. I have put my hand inside while having it on baby and it’s so warm. The igloo-like design allows baby the freedom to move freely in their seat while keeping them all snuggly and warm and safe. Installation takes minutes and in no way changes any of the safety features of the car seat, this is one of the most important features of this car seat cover. Did I mention it is also machine washable which is always a big selling point. It is the perfect product for our harsh Canadian winters and also why I am adding it to my baby must have list. I do wish I had this with all of my babies knowing that this product would never have affected the safety of their seats like the other product I used. The car seat cover is also available for mid-season and summer weather as well.
It is the number 1 rated car seat cover in North America with both the Parent Tested Parent Approved seal as well as the Today’s Parent seal of approval. This product is worth every penny and I only wish I had owned one sooner!
