What exactly is a car seat poncho? Style and safety!
It’s a poncho that is specifically designed to be worn over a child in a car seat so that they can stay warm and cozy without adding bulk between the child and their seat. Any bulk between the child and the car seat or the harness of the car seat is dangerous and can result in full or partial ejection in the event of an accident. The thick layers of a coat or snow suit compress with the force of a crash leaving a large gap between your child and their harness. Living in Canada, we still have to take winter and sub zero temperatures into account. No one wants their child to be buckled in unsafely, but no one wants their child to be sitting in a cold car when it’s -40 either.
Dreampower car seat ponchos are made of 2 layers of fleece. We put a zipper in the front to make car seat straps easy to fasten. There is a hand opening to accommodate snack and toy holding.
