Winter Coats Can Interfere With Car Seat Safety
The temperatures are dropping, so it’s time to bundle your little ones up to protect against the cold.
But did you know a winter coat can affect your child’s car seat’s ability to do its job?
According to Safe Kids, “A bulky coat can compress in a crash and create a loose car seat harness, putting your child at greater risk of injury in the unlikely event of a crash.”
Watch this video to see the way the coat affects the car seat fit.
Safe and Warm
How do you keep your child safe and warm in the winter?
