This winter parents aren’t putting coats on their little ones before taking them outside but they have a very good reason.
According to consumerreports.org, "Winter coats should not be worn underneath a car seat harness because it can leave the harness too loose to be effective in a crash." The site suggests covering young babies with fitted aftermarket covers approved by your car-seat manufacturer so as not to compromise safety. For older children, consumerreports.org suggests turning coats around so the coat covers the front of the child and not the back. This way kids can put their arms straight into the armholes so the coat functions as a blanket resting on top of them after they've already been buckled in.
