With the chilly temperatures outside, most of us are bundled into our winter clothes and snow gear to stay warm. If you have kids, it's pretty likely that at some time or another you've overdressed them to the point where they can't move.
Unfortunately, even with the good intentions of keeping our little ones safe, we might be putting them in more danger by combining winter outerwear and car seats. Ruth from Viva Veltoro has all the information you need from Allana Pinkerton, Certified Child Passenger Safety Instructor and Global Safety Advocate for Diono, to educate yourself about the dangers of your children wearing puffy coats while in their car seats. Make sure you check out her post for a full list of Do's and Don'ts when it comes to winter car seat safety.
