Best Tips To Keep Your Child Warm And Safe On His Infant Car Seat During Winter

Winter not only brings cold weather but slippery roads as well. It is inevitable to drive with our children, and as a parent, we want to make sure that they are as warm as possible. We tend to bundle them up to ensure they will be able to face the elements. However, bulky coats and car seats are a dangerous combination.

Using snowsuits or heavy winter coats can provide warmth to your child during the ride, but they can also compromise the safety of your baby's car seat. These pieces of clothing can alter the fit of your child on his car seat. The straps of the infant car seat or booster seat should always be tight against your child's chest in order to function properly. If the straps do not fit your little one properly, it's likely for him to get ejected from his safety seat in the event of a crash.
