Protecting leather seats

The grandparents got a new car with leather interior. When we took the cataracts out it looks like the leather is really getting stretched and indented. Any advice on a safe way to protect the leather?
If it matters the car is a 2013 Ford Flex with a MyRide rear facing and a Nautilus.
Thanks!

No advice but I am totally laughing at the autocorrect in your post. I thought you were worried about the grandparents having their cataracts removed and realizing the carseats ruined their leather.

lol that autocorrect is priceless. You can use a thin towel or a receiving blanket. The dents will most likely pop out so I wouldn't worry about those.

Oops! And I thought I proofread it! Didn't catch cataracts. Not worried about cataracts, but car seats! Great job autocorrect

Most techs will say you can if its loose enough that you can pull it out. Call the carseat company see if they have any that go with that actual seat. Some do.

I have also used thin towels or blankets. Do avoid any "after market" car seat protectors. They often provide a false tight install.

I'd honestly think if your seat was loose enough that you could easily pull a towel out from under it, your seat is TOO LOOSE.

I am really confused by what your saying here. She didn't say her seats are loose. And if they are then they are installed incorrectly and putting something underneath them (such as a no slip mat or car seat protector), which the manual will specifically say NOT to do, isn't going to help the install. It will hinder it even farther.
