Bulky clothing, including large sweatshirts, winter coats and snowsuits, should not be worn underneath the harness of a car seat. In a car crash, fluffy padding immediately flattens out from the force, leaving extra space under the harness. Your child can then slip through the harness and be thrown from the seat. It’s just not safe to buckle over the coat, period. When we know better, we do better. This is why we designed these, and they are here to put your mind at ease.
