As temperatures drop, it can be tempting to buckle your child in their car seat with their bulky winter coat or snowsuit. The fluff and air that is found in most coats is what keeps a child warm, but can be UNSAFE due to the extra slack it adds into the car seat harness or seat belt. Extra bulk can make it difficult and sometimes impossible to properly tighten the harness or seat belt while also preventing proper placement of the harness straps, leading to issues that could put a child in danger, such as the harness sliding off the shoulders when the bulk of the coat prevents the harness from sitting in the proper position.

"Winter coats are a necessity for keeping kids warm outside in the winter, but most of them lead to poor harness fit or prevent properly tightening the harness of a car seat. 'Toastier' car seat coats by Buckle Me Baby Coats offer families an innovative solution to the seasonal challenge of how to keep their kids warm, while still allowing a proper and secure fit of the car seat harness. Buckle Me’s commitment to making a coat that solves this seasonal challenge without compromising safety was obvious throughout the testing process.
Beyond the safety factors, as a parent, I understand that daily usability and warmth is also important and Buckle Me has paid attention here too. I appreciate their attention to real-kid details like sleeve length and room-to-grow.
It’s great to have an answer for parents that is a “yes” when it comes to a winter coat after years of recommending alternative work-arounds for our Canadian cold."
