>There is a great product called the Flip Over me Poncho. It was designed for children to wear in car seats so they don’t have to wear bulky jackets. It is a poncho that easily goes over child’s head. When they are placed in their car seat the back flips over the front so the child is comfortable and the harness can be tightened directly against their body. I have been using mine in the cold Chicago winter. I could not go through winter without it.http://www.flipovermeponcho.com
>Great article! I personally have looked into the cruise cover (because it's so cute) but those Babbacovers are absolutely adorable. Thank you for pointing out the risks of using aftermarket products, as well as providing specific manufacture's warnings. I will be sharing this with friends.
>Thanks for sharing about the Flip Over Me Poncho – it looks great and I have added it to the blog post as another safe alternative to the sleeping bags and bulky coats.
>The Cozy Cover is a nice alternative also. It's similar to the infant carrier covers you already posted, but at about half the price. http://www.amazon.com/Cozy-Microfiber-Fleece-Cover–Charcoal/dp/B004BNLIUS/ref=sr_1_10?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1294367948&sr=1-10
>Just in case anyone is thinking about trying it don't bother with the Cruise Cuddler also by SootheTime don't bother with it. It doesn't have the bulk like the bundle me. but it interferes with the straps, making it impossible to tighten as shown above. I do recommended their clip on blanket though. The clips are nice and strong, and it was easy to just unclip and wrap around my sweetie as we got out of the car. I also have a car seat poncho. I love it and get so many compliments!
>Terrific article, as usual! The parachute analogy really hits the nail on the head. Thank you for featuring the Car Seat Poncho in your links and in the photo.
>Great post. I love that you posted excerpts of all the manuals. I will definitely be pointing anyone with questionable car seat usage your way.
>off to cut my bundle me right now! Thanks for the video
