So I bought Ky a winter coat yeasterday because she will need one for some things with how cold it gets around here. I know that winter coats and car seats do not mix. Just to test the theory I put Ky in her new coat in her carseat and buckled it. Then I took her out (without loosening the straps any) and went to snap her in without the coat. There was a HUGE difference. So here is the question: how exactly do you keep your kid safe and warm when they are too big to ride in an infant carrier? I mean that thing was a pita but it was nice to be able to snap her in, tuck a blanket around her and then throw another one over the whole thing before going outside. We live in an apratment (for another two months anyway) and I sometimes have to walk quite a bit to get to my car in the morning. I do go out and start it to warm it up but I still have to get her from the house to the car. Even after we move what do we do when we go out places like the mall or a store? Put her coat on when we get there?? Maybe I am over thinking this but I am a little low on sleep this week so please help!
