Hot Weather Tips

  • Protect your child against hot vinyl padding, metal and plastic on the car seat.
  • Feel the seat and buckles before putting your child in it. In hot weather, lay a towel or cloth over the seat when not in use.
  • Never leave infants or children in a parked vehicle, even if the windows are partially open.
  • Even cool temperatures in the 60s can cause the temperature to rise well above 110° Fahrenheit inside your car. The inside temperature can rise almost 20 degrees within the first 10 minutes

Cold Weather Tips

  • Before strapping in your child, always remove excess clothing like puffy coats. They can prevent the straps from tightening enough to properly restrain your child in a car accident.

    It’s much safer to strap your child in first and then either cover them with a blanket or lay their coat on top of them like a blanket.

    You can also buy a special car seat poncho that’ll provide warmth without getting in between the straps and your child.
