One of my least favorite parts of winter is getting kids in and out of carseat while they are bundled up in heavy jackets. Car seat experts caution against putting kids in seats with their heavy jackets because in an accident the jacket could compress and the kid could be ejected. Plus, I hate having to adjust the straps all the time! PA weather is up and down (today we didn't even need jackets) so that means a lot of strap adjustment. Anyway, one solution is to use a carseat poncho. It goes over the kid and they can wear it in their seat without obstructing the straps. Or if they are like my kids, they can just take it off and throw it on the floor! Or use it as a blanket. I decided to make some for the kids.
