it seems that with an itty bitty baby they might be too heavy and thick so i would definitely take them off while my child was small and rear-facing but i don't really see why they're required when forward facing...especially considering the fact that other car seat manufacturers don't have them. i guess i didn't read far enough into the booklet because i didn't see that statement.
