Re: Coats and Carseats...
I live in Maine and it gets pretty cold here. We keep a no-sew fleece blanket in the entry way and wrap the baby in that before we go to the car. After she is strapped in I tuck the blanket around her. I did the same when my youngest was a baby too.
There are so many accidents and so much unsafe driving I will do what ever I can to help keep my children safe. My oldest wears a fleece zip up and her jacket out to the car but removes her jacket before getting in her seat.
