It's better not to use warm winter jackets in carseats, because they increase safety in case of accidents. A perfect alternative? This poncho by Voksi! Thanks to its softness and cosyness, you can safely use the poncho for kids from 1 until aprox. 4 years old.
The poncho is reversible and has the right openings for a perfect fit in carseats.
As a parent, you want your child to be as safe as possible in your car, that goes without saying. A sturdy car seat is a great start, but did you know that a good car seat alone is not always enough? It can, for example, be very dangerous to put your child in a safe car seat while wearing a thick winter coat. The danger in that situation is that you, due to that bulky winter coat, unknowingly fail to tighten the seat harness sufficiently.
