Winter is quickly approaching, and you might be wondering how do I keep my infant warm when using a bucket seat or a stroller combo? Like I can't put them in a snowsuit... but I want something I can pull on and off for walks or adventures. The answer to that is a shower cap style infant car seat cover. Earlier this year we introduced you to the 3 Seasons Car Seat Cover from Petite Coulou, but this week we brought in their classic winter cover to compliment the collection and provide you with local options in Prince George, BC.
These car seat covers are designed with parents of infants and young children in mind. Whether you have a newborn or a toddler, these covers are suitable for rear-facing car seats for infants up to 16kg (35 lbs). They provide the warmth and comfort your little one needs during those chilly Canadian winters.
Here's where infant car seat covers shine:
Outdoor Activities: Planning to spend more time outdoors, like attending winter festivals or taking a family hike in the snow? These car seat covers are perfect for keeping your baby warm and snug during periods in the cold.
- Protect from the weather
- No need to bundle and unbundle the child from their bulky snow suit when moving in and out of the car.
Indoor Activities: Do you find yourself at the rink with a sleeping baby? Or moving in and out of different buildings and spaces with your travel system or infant car seat? These car seat covers shine by keeping the temperature regulated in a variety of environments.
- Protect from curious onlookers who want to get a little to close
- Help keeps children in a warm dark place for better sleep
- Easy warm transition from inside to the outside car
Do I need the 3 Seasons Car Seat Cover or the Winter classic?
Both covers are fantastic choices made with the same material and CLO rating. They both feature the Petit Coulou Semi-rigid, breathable, 100% polyester insulating foam designed to maintain its shape after washing - with rib like structure, this car seat cover maintains its rounded shape around baby and ensures adequate air flow and warmth as needed.
If you want a cover that's all about versatility and flexibility, go for the "3 Seasons Car Seat Cover." If you prefer a classic design that's perfect for harsh Canadian winters, the "Classic Winter Car Seat Cover" is your go-to.
I originally brought in the 3 Seasons Car Seat Cover because I find that we're living in a world of much variability and it can regularly go from too hot to too cold. The Three Seasons cover has a zipper lining to reduce the warmth needed on the warmer days while still providing protection from the wind, harsh winter sun, or rain.
